Good morning Dear Reader,

Let me begin the day with a question: how many times can one “start over”?

It’s been on my mind recently in regards to my writing and my goals. Some times I feel like I’m really on a roll with things. Like I’m really making it, while others I feel like I’m in a slump. Then it becomes a vicious cycle of having resolve and losing it. It makes me wonder how many times one can begin again.

Now to be fair, each time I start over, I have gained way more lessons from the previous time, and it seems like my “up” cycles are a lot longer. I suppose that’s well and good.

However, I wonder, as a creator how many chances do I get? If there is such a limit on things. I would imagine it’s not a problem as long as I don’t start from scratch each time.

Take this blog for example. I have had it for about 6 or so years and it’s gone through so many changes. I wasn’t sure the direction I was going to take it and honestly I experimented with it a lot. At first it was supposed to be an advice blog, then a personal blog, then a writing blog, then back to a personal blog. There were times when I considered scrapping it altogether but then I thought “why?”. There are so many memories and growth within it and I think it’s okay.

In the past year or two, I have gained a lot of tools. So now, I have a website for my professional writing, my personal blog, and separate outlets for my creative work. Everything doesn’t have to be one goo glob of everything I’m capable of and I think that’s okay. 🙂

In any case, I think it’s okay to slow down or take a break as long as I never stop.

What are your thoughts, dear reader? Is there a limit on beginnings?

Warm regards and much love,

Shannon M.
