WOW where did the last 4 months go? I know it’s been a long time since I even tried to post something on here. It really is amazing how easy it is for us to drop something, even if we enjoy it. There are many
reasons excuses for why I haven’t written, but they can all be summed up into one word: Motivation.
I love many things in my life. I love my wife and kids. I love my Savior I love helping others and I love learning new things. I often have told people that if I could be paid to learn, I would take that job without question.
I also learned, that I like to write. I like blogging. I like putting digital pen to digital paper and posting my incoherent thoughts for all to see. Yeah I know I don’t have this huge following. I just enjoy writing. If someone reads it and enjoys it then all the better, but I write for me.
If you like it so much, why did you lose motivation?
I lost emotion, because I stopped writing and learning for the enjoyment of it. I wasn’t trying to be the next big language blogger, but I also wasn’t writing for my benefit. It became work, a job, a chore. With thing picking up at my paying job, it got harder and harder to WANT to write.
One day, it just happened. I sat down to write and nothing would come out. I have never wanted to write something that wasn’t real. I have mailed in a couple of posts here and there, but there were still from me and my motivation to learn and help others learn. This was different. I couldn’t get a single feeling or thought out. So I didn’t. Next thing you know it been 4 months.
So what have you been up to?
I have focused a lot at work and been doing some minimal Language learning. I will be honest. I haven’t learned any Samoan in the last 4 months. I went back to Spanish. It was easier and felt more natural. Samoan made me make new routines and I just didn’t have the heart do it the last 4 months. Of course I have been with my kids and my family.
So what does the future hold for this blogger? I don’t know but I will guarantee you, what ever happens will be because I enjoy it! And I hope you do too.
