2 years of continuous daily blogging and one big lesson.

Yesterday’s blog was my 730th blog in a row. Wow, two years of continuous daily blogs.

This is what I wrote last year, after a year, on the 19 things I had learnt – click here.

The 19 things that I had learnt in the 1st year still remain true.

This year I have learnt one more BIG thing to add to the list.

By blogging every day, it enables me to talk to myself each day and share it. That is powerful.

Hitting publish makes it public and that is great for bravery and accountability and it is scary at times too. But fear is good, it is a motivator and an inspiration.

I feel the good pressure of trying to apply my own advice and trying to live by what I say and that is a hard but a very worthwhile challenge to have in life.

Do I succeed every day? Well, perhaps that is for others to answer, but I know that I don’t every day. However, it is getting even better as the days pass.

Progress is all that we can ask for in life and it is as always the tiny steps and being compassionate to yourself that matter. It is at our own pace and choice.

So in my head, I can say to myself ‘well done Philip’ and give myself a pat on the back.

Now for year 3 and thanks to all of you who take time to read my blogs.

What to write?

Just start typing, something will come up, the longer you think, the more you will talk yourself out of something.

The title will often come from what you start to type and the great news is, whatever you type, you can go back and edit. Better to type something than have a blank screen and not publish.

We always have something to say, it could be about the weather, especially if you are from the UK, it could be about politics, dangerous, or religion, even more dangerous. There are literally millions of things to write about, the challenge is to stop your inner voice from saying things like ‘what do you know about that?’ or ‘no one will read that’ or whatever else that voice will say to you to stop you from doing it.

The thing is, there is always a thing worth saying, sharing, publishing.

I had the challenge today of what to write, so I just started typing.
