The term used for this post’s heading is still being widely used today. Now, this was never intentional but because of its popular use, it is likely to be noticed and picked up sometime shortly after this post is published. Who knows, perhaps my content editor may feel compelled for good reasons known only to her, to alter the title. That’s fine by me and I really don’t mind. In any case, I am taking this subject quite seriously and (you may have picked this up earlier) I have ambitions to devote myself to the world of blogging on a full-time basis, more or less.
This is an enterprise I would really like to sink my gleaming white teeth into someday. Unfortunately, at this time of my life, I have little time and resources in which to get this long-held dream project fully off the ground in more ways than one. You may argue, quite rightly, that I am already blogging, so what’s the problem and what’s the big deal. And what exactly are you trying to tell the readers? Let me put it another way, like all rewarding professional occupations, it has its bad days along with the good days. Murphy’s Law, however, always gets its way, so there always seem to be more of the bad.
For the time being, the way I feel about this right now, I think this might be a challenging post to write. Out of the hat, if you will, I selected the theme of hobbies for this post.
But lately, in fact for a few months at least, I have not had the time to spend doing the things that I love doing, particularly creative things that don’t require me to sit in front of my laptop. So, I’ve lost quite a bit of my train of thought in lieu of my hobbies.
Where hobbies are concerned, this would be a dream. Well, it’s already a dream. I dream about it already. And that’s as far as this potentially life-enriching and rewarding hobby goes for now. It’s just a pipe dream. But they are still saying that dreams do come true. I agree. I believe in dreams and to this day I am still dreaming in a small world of daily lived realities. How does that song go again?
Sweet dreams are made of these.
For those of you still struggling to get your feet off the ground where blogging is concerned, I hope that this post will prove to be a source of inspiration and one of those tales which are instructive in encouraging you to never lose hope and to never give up. Personal blogging is a journey of life. So, even while I’m writing up this post, I’m feeding myself with inspiration, encouragement and motivation. It’s a necessary lesson in life to ‘never, ever, ever give up’ as the famous saying goes.
