I started writing online in 2016, I however had been writing before then mostly in my journal. I also read books and articles a lot, I have subscribed to other people’s blogs and I enjoy reading their updates. I however realized that I have lost focus at times. There are times I have been attracted to the way other writers express their thoughts, and I have tried to write using their style. Instead of ,e getting passion for the same I tend to loose it. I might have a theme but since am not able to put it across as a certain writer I like then I postpone it until I forget what I was to write about in the same place.
Maybe you do not have a struggle in writing like me. But you might be having a similar struggle in another area of your life. It is easy to stagnate in a place because you are trying to fit in to what you think the society is looking for. As we try to fit in, we loose our focus. The trail gets blurry, we stop chasing the first destination.
The Bible says in Deuteronomy 5:32 that we should not look to the right or to the left. In this journey it is important for us to stay focused. To aim at our main purpose, even as we get distracted by what seems more acceptable by hose around us. If God has given you a passion for something go for it, fix your eyes on He who is the author and the finisher of your faith. Don’t look to the right or to the left, don’t try to be like everyone else, let each of us be unique and that is what makes the world a beautiful place.
