It has been over 6 years since my last post.
There is a part of me that missed the exploration of ideas that came to mind and my attempts to figure things out based on my understanding of things at that time. Another part of me felt there were no ideas left that were worth exploring which was driven by fear, laziness, or simply stalled growth. Another part of me simply forgot. I really cannot remember why I stopped, and admittedly I am a bit shocked that the last post was in 2010, but here we are.
At the end of the day it all comes down to putting effort into where we feel, believe, think, we add the most value. Whether it be value to others, or ourselves, if we’re not adding value the thought of participating is abhorrent. I suspect in the last 6 years it wasn’t clear where value was being added. It wasn’t clear where it was adding to me personally (doesn’t mean it wouldn’t have – it just wasn’t clear), which is a primary driver before you can add value to others without feeling like a fraud.
Am I adding value now by firing this up again? Really, I have no idea. I believe there is value to me personally by getting back to writing and exploring concepts because it certainly has been missed. Much has been learned the last few years and perhaps there are some ideas lurking under the surface I really just need to get out of the brain to make room. I think for now I will start adding value to me, and see where we go. Consistency will be key, and I am OK with that.
Welcome back, I’ve missed you.
