Not all days are created equally. And not all blog posts are equal either.
Even though this blog post will “damage” my average word count, there is nothing I can do about it.
My daughter has fever and I’m looking after her all evening and night. Her health obviously comes first.
However, there is actually something I could do — I could simply write a blog post and not find an excuse.
Yes, everything in life is a choice.
After I got my daughter to sleep I decided to take my laptop to bed and stay next to her with my laptop. I made the choice to work for a bit and then rest while watching a film. Just when I wanted to go to sleep, I realised that I hadn’t posted anything for today yet.
I made the conscious choice to write this blog post on my phone rather than my laptop.
That was an early indication that I wouldn’t write a long post. However, it also was a choice to write something rather than give up and not write anything.
Everything in life is a choice.
And those choices don’t always just come in black and white but in plenty of shades.
