Uninspired or not bothered?
Busy or lazy?
Attention-deficit or not-up-for-it?
Family-first or Netflix thirst?
Risk averse or glut of guts?
My first post on this blog was on 3rd January 2010, it was called the Accidental Ad-man. In that post – just shy of 10 full years ago, yikes! – I prophesied how this blog could be an accident in the making. That’s just me being the pseudo-pessimistic, ultra-realist person I sometimes am.
Well now, at this very juncture, I feel that that playful premonition has come back to haunt me. I have become a victim of my own self doubt and analysis paralysis, which has resulted in this blog being dormant for the last few years or so.
And honestly, I have ran out of excuses.
There is nothing more I can say here to justify my lack of efforts. 10 freaking years has just dissipated into memories. A decade of the good, bad and ugly; all irrecoverable, un-editable, immutable.
It’s especially painful when I re-read my musings here, seems like I enjoyed the process of writing – just plain writing. Thoughts, ideas, observations and commentary forming out of nothingness, only accompanied by the sound of key strokes.
What a beautiful feeling.
I started this post with a few questions. Yes, they are questions for me by me, and the answers are meant to shed some light why I stopped writing. While I can easily attribute the fact that I started a family as one of the contributing factors, I feel that becomes just another excuse.
In fact, I should have more solid material for my writings with all the insanity of having 2 kids in quick succession. And believe me I do.
So why have I reduced myself to this? Maybe god knows, but I think our friend is equally perplexed. This is solely on me.
And if someone is actually reading this attempt of me trying to make sense of things, then congrats! You now know more about my inner feelings that the average person does.
Last thing, writing this was an absolute pleasure.
