My dearest readers and subscribers, thank you so much for always being there, especially to the World Changers who paid to receive my daily updates.
I’m really sorry for not keeping my end of the bargain. Truly, I apologize for not being able to deliver, especially now that I have committed to send you 365 emails for 365 days. I’m really, really sorry.
Last week, my family went on a week-long tour in Osaka, Japan. Being a short trip, we really made the most of our time. We usually left at seven in the morning and got back to our hotel at 10 or 11 in the evening. I was really exhausted during our whirlwind trip. But, still, I know I could have done better. I’m really sorry.
When we got home last Wednesday morning, I just rested. When I tried writing my realizations during the trip, I had a hard time writing because I lost all my momentum. I lost my natural flow of writing in the morning. I couldn’t get myself to be creative and to be in the zone. It was like learning to walk again.
I guess that’s what happens when your routine gets broken—you always have to relearn how to walk again.
I really wanted to make it up to you by writing a 2,000 to 3,000-word post. But, I cannot seem to write it without my momentum. So, I’ll try to regain it by striving for small wins (or short posts).
That’s it for today. Thank you and I’m really sorry. I’ll try my best not to miss any post again. And I’ll try to make it up to you.
Three lessons I learned from this experience:
- No matter what happens, don’t break your routine. Don’t lose your momentum.
- Always have an allowance for unexpected events.
- When you go on a vacation, don’t exhaust yourself and leave room for resting, for experiencing the beauty of your surroundings, and for taking everything in. Otherwise, you won’t be able to bring the memories with you and you’ll just end up being more tired after your vacation.
I’ll be writing about our quick trip very soon, complete with pictures I took with my phone! So, watch out for it.
As always, thank you for being there. The best is yet to come.
P.S. Two quick announcements: I’m thinking of removing the comments on my blog. First reason, because I don’t have the time to reply to comments right now. Second reason, whenever I do reply to comments, I don’t think I’m being able to give a comment that’s adding up to your comments. I’m also rebranding my blog from ChargingTheLines.com to CarloCruz.ph to make it a more personal blog. Still, it will be about doing work that matters and my personal stories. What do you think? Feel free to reply through the contact page.
