…you realize that you really have too much going on this month (this summer, really, but let’s not get carried away), to effectively write every day.

It occurs to you that it’s only the once or twice a week post that is really singing, and truly conveying what’s on your heart, so why not write that way again, at least for a while?

At first, that commitment to everyday writing for a year, that you made some 237 days ago (602 if you really want to go back to the beginning), really gnaws at you, because you’re a people-pleaser (which is really just another word for too much self-importance). But people don’t need more noise in their lives, (especially when what you’re currently writing feels a little like filler), so perhaps slowing down to when you feel something lodge itself into your heart, begging to be shared…maybe that isn’t really a break in commitment at all.

Maybe it’s a gift to everyone of refocusing and retraining the eyes and the heart – yours and theirs.

So, you make a decision to do it.

And you know that, at the end of the day – or the beginning – that it’s the right decision, because your heart is at peace.


“For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:10 ESV
