There’s a time to wait
I have a great idea for a blog post. I just don’t have the energy to write it today.
And you know what? I decided that’s okay. In fact, I decided it’s wise to wait.
What I want to write about isn’t time-sensitive. And I’m tired. So very tired. Too tired to do it justice.
Today is my first day off in, well, I’ve lost track. Delighted to have so much work, but since finishing everything yesterday I’ve done pretty much nothing. Read, watched TV, napped. Which I’m completely fine with.
I kept trying to start the post I want to write – and still will, very soon – but finally realized that I just didn’t have it in me today. So I’d never be able to write the piece I really want to write, and it’s a topic I feel strongly about.
Sure, sometimes you just have to crank things out. Like this little rumination, which keeps me true to my word of blogging three times a week.
But when you have the luxury of time — and something you’d like to savor the act of doing, rather than just doing it for the sake of completion — it’s better to wait.
So that’s what I’ll do. I’ll wait. And probably take another nap.
