I have not established a routine for posting regularly on my website. I could beat myself up.
Recently I’ve been listening to a webinar series for writers. One of the guests interviewed is a creative author and mentor who goes by the name SARK. She gave these words of wisdom, “The only thing you have to do every day is BREATHE and PEE.” Everything else is optional. No need to beat ourselves up because we don’t do something every day, whether that is to exercise or read or write or any other task on our To Do list.
If we don’t put energy into giving ourselves a hard time, we’d have more energy for things we want to do. SARK also noted that avoiding writing takes more energy than sitting down for a few minutes and getting started.
