Post Silence

I didn’t blog yesterday. It was the first day I hadn’t blogged since November 31, 2012. And it was a strange feeling to wake up this morning knowing that today would be a new beginning. I hadn’t even planned on finally skipping a day after over 780 in a row, but yesterday just kind of ran its course and it hadn’t even occurred to me that I hadn’t blogged until after I was under the covers. By then I realized that if I just ran out here to blog because of the streak it wouldn’t be authentic. The glory of the streak was that I didn’t think about it very often. Its organic nature sustained it… and eventually finished it off.

And I feel great. For a while I used to wonder how it would be once the streak was over, but now that it is I feel like I’m not tied down to ritual for ritual’s sake. I feel like a new beginning has started, like this post silence was just what I needed to reinvigorate my writing. I don’t even know if I’ll start another streak or if I’ll just blog whenever from now on, but whatever happens I know I’m excited to find out what it’s going to be.
