A Mindful Breath began over two years ago as a way to share my photos, ideas and experiences. This post is number one hundred! As I began I asked advice of a friend who enjoys subscribing to blogs. She suggested that I post on a regular schedule at least once a week, publishing on a weekday. I’m glad I followed her advice as otherwise I doubt I would have continued this long.
Making the commitment to have the post come out every Thursday (except if there were technical difficulties or I was away) meant that often on Wednesday evening I would be sitting down at the computer wondering what I would write about. I would moan and groan, remind myself that there were absolutely no consequences if I didn’t post, and begin scrolling through my photos or reviewing my idea list for inspiration. It continues to amaze me that the inspiration arrived. I’ve been grateful too that I tend to write quickly, usually with little revision, so I always got the post into the queue at a reasonable time.
I’ve been reminded that it is often difficult to resume a habit after we take a break, so my plan is to continue, perhaps with less regularity. I have many photos in my library, continue to take more, and I am certainly always learning about this mysterious process of being human.
Thank you to all who read AMB; I’m especially grateful to those who comment either by replying to the email, going to the website and posting a comment, or saying something to me in person. Although I enjoy doing it for its own sake, it’s even better to know that others enjoy or benefit from my musings.
May you and all beings be happy!
