Get moving again.
There. End of post. Shortest ever!
What, you don’t quite get it?
OK, I’ll elaborate a little. But just a little. (I still want this to be the shortest post ever from me.)
Take this post, for instance. It has been a while since I’ve written one. I’ve been busy, you know, with stuff: Selling a home, buying a new one, preparing two moves, planning a new life in a new town, doing a bit of money-earning work. Oh, and trying to get pregnant. (Not me: My wife. But apparently I have a contribution to make.)
It adds up. And whether it is the time it takes, or the mental energy it requires, it ends up leaving too little of either for me to muster what it takes to write.
And so you don’t get to read anything from me for a while.
It is just like when “Life gets in the way” and prevents us from exercising like we know we should. (Or must.)
First, you take a short breather, just to get over the urgent things. Then it gets a bit longer, because it always takes longer than expected. Then the habit appears broken, and it gets hard to find the time or muster the energy.
Next thing you know, you’ve not exercised in a while. Just like I’ve not written a post in a while.
So, what are we to do in such situations?
Get moving again.
That is the only thing that matters.
It does not have to be moving a lot. It does not have to be performing at our top level. It does not even have to be a good post.
Just get out there and move. Just find a bit of time.
You know why. You know it is the right thing to do. For yourself. For your Purpose.
So that’s it. Today, I’ve done my part (writing this post); now it’s your turn to do yours.
Get out there and move!

P.S.: It is still pretty much my shortest post ever.
