Extended Hiatus

in #life4 years ago

After an extended hiatus from Steemit, @Raserrano convinced me to come back.

I realized several different things that led to my absence.

  1. The first was, I had not quite created a habit.  According to research, it takes anywhere from 15-30 days to create a habit (common answer is 21 days).  
  2. I encountered a difficult life event.  It made me feel unmotivated to accomplish anything extra in life.  There were many times for the first couple weeks where I thought about Steemit at night when I was free, but I devoted my time to other facets of life that would distract me from my situation more easily.
  3. I needed (and still need) to connect with more people on Steemit.  There was only a few people whom I was regularly interacting with or actively following, of course @RASerrano, @Rhyt, @SoyKatonline, @JRB450 and @ganjafarmer (who wanted to meet up in Portland, and then I didn't get back on Steemit until now... sorry man!).  Hopefully, this people will continue to enjoy what I wrote, and help me continue to grow on Steemit.
  4. I had created 2-3 posts that I had not posted, but I didn't feel creative enough.  Maybe now I'll have some more creative juices flowing!  I have a list of brainstormed ideas for topics.
  5. I'd love to get your input and feedback!
Sort:  

Would up-vote, but it would deplete my ability to interact- I leased most my SP because I'm in a similar boat- had to take a break because life got in the way! Hope to be back soon as things normalize a bit. Nice to see you back!!

Would love to see you back
