It’s OK to Stop

It’s been some time since I last wrote anything of substance. Why? I simply didn’t want to write. That was the realization. And I was fine with it.

In fact, it felt good to simply not do something because I truly didn’t feel like doing it.

Was it laziness? No. I did many other things instead.

Was it writer’s block? No. I had some ideas.

What it was, was simply acknowledging I didn’t want to. And this is the lesson: if you’re not required to do something, and you don’t need to do something, then don’t.
