A Return, a Revelation, and a Renewed Commitment

Do you ever write a blog post or email, delete it, then write it again, and delete it ad nauseam? If you’re anything like me with this post, you get it. I’ve been writing and rewriting this ‘return to the blog’ post for the past two months, yet I’ve never shared a single version.

So, here goes…

At the start of 2023, I wrote a “return” post after recovering from a major burnout. I’m hitting refresh and sharing a new ‘return’ post! Why? Well, the first one was missing one key detail. I didn’t leave it out by choice. It was a requirement in Scots Law.

Plans Aren’t Set in Stone — But Goals Should Be

It’s Friday, and I’d usually be posting a “What I’m Reading” post, but I’m putting that on hold this week. I’m still reading the books from last week and didn’t want to post the same thing twice.

This post is inspired by not posting my Reading post. Before 2022 started, I made a commitment to myself that I’d post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

That was my goal.
