I originally began blogging because I wanted to ‘loosen up’ my style of writing. To move away from the technical and formal business style of writing I’d been trained into.
Somewhere in there I wanted to find my ‘voice’ .
To be able to write the way I wanted to write and express my thoughts in a way that people got what I was saying and more importantly ‘felt’ what i wanted them to feel.
I’m not sure I’ve quite pulled the last part off.
The biggest criticism from friends is that I’m still playing to safe. Not really writing from the heart.
I think there are times that I do and times that I don’t.
I do notice the difference it makes, in terms of the feedback and likes.
I guess that’s why it’s important, if you can, to write about something you are passionate about, otherwise if you’re not interested why should anyone else be?
How does this extend into other areas of my life?
Where am I not coming from the heart when it’s important to do so?
Where am I not giving 100% me because I’m afraid of the feedback?
Does this resonate?
What can we do about it?
My plan: keep blogging, keep challenging myself, keep liking myself more each day, keep finding things to passionate about.
What’s your plan?
