What was I thinking??
I like a challenge. And I tend to sign up for this sort of thing rather impulsively. But I do think that being part of a community and committing to something publicly does help one to follow through, and keep going when it gets tough. So I am hoping it will be the necessary shove that I need to get back into a writing habit. The yoga part will be relatively easy for me. It's the writing that will be a challenge. Earlier in the year I made a writing commitment which as you can see I haven't managed to stick to - even though it was small somehow life got in the way. I could come up with a string of excuses but I know they are irrelevant - there are people with a lot more on their plates than I have, who manage to make the time to write - because they make it a priority.
So once again, I am committing to this process because I know that practice is the only way to make progress. And practice means time and repetition, in order to create a habit. Our habits are what make us who we are.
Chefs must cook. Painters must paint. And writers must write.
As BKS Iyengar so wisely said:
'Change leads to disappointment if it is not sustained.
Tranformation is sustained changed, and it is achieved through practice.'
