I guess it has been months already since I have been very active on social media. Part of it is because I am required to use Facebook and Messenger for work but after office hours, and even weekends, this has been consuming a lot of my hours which honestly has been affecting my life in general.
Although I want to shut my Facebook off, sad that I just really can’t because it is part of my job. What I did is I deleted my Facebook app on my phone and retained my messenger. This has been working good for quite some time already, thank God.
But still, those ‘Let me check my Facebook’ moments are still here of course! So, for me not to focus on Facebook, I’m giving myself the Blog-A-Day Challenge for 7 days.
The Blog-A-Day Challenge
Honestly, I still can’t overcome the fact that someone reads this blog (Hello to you!! Thank you!). And I am still shy about it. I even have a secret blog where I can just freely express what is in my heart freely without looking back at word 1. Glad that I have written my Ivory Coast Calatagan gala already without overthinking! Haha!
Also, just this recently, a rebuke from a good friend rings my mind often.
don’t stop writing. every great leader is a writer.
It hit me hard. Why do I write? Do I really need to be a perfect writer just to start writing again? What am I shy about?
And then I was reminded by one of the parables in the Bible which is the parable of talents. God gave us talents, why not use it for His glory?
The Only Rule
The only rule for this challenge is to just.. write freely.
I have the freedom to write whatever God wants me to write.
If there is a revelation, write about it.
If there is an answered prayer, write about it.
If there is chaos in my mind, pray about it, then write.
If I loved the cafe I went to, write about it.
Hopefully, this challenge will not just stop after seven days but will serve as the start of a new habit. Cheer me guys! 🙂
