3 hours back, I sat down with my diary to write my rough draft on the steps I have pursued in the past 7 months to deal with my anxieties and depression considering I am way better now than I was this time around last year and in the months which followed. As I was writing the introduction of how it all began, I couldn’t restrain to keep the introduction to just that and it carried on and on comprising of what and how I went through month after month. This description ran into 5 pages before I reached the month when I began taking corrective steps. By the end of the 5th page, I gave up.
I took up the laptop to start writing the steps straight away limiting the introduction to 2 sentences. 3 steps and 600 words into it, it became clear today is not the day for this. I will have to move away from it for sometime, revisit and work on it later for some other Monday.
Thus, 3 hours hence, I do not have a Monday Musings post.
In another context –
This morning, while we were at the breakfast table, I mentioned it to Dhruv I had no topic in my mind today to write my Monday post on.
To this, he suggested, “You can write about my new interest in sharks.”
“What about sharks?” I was curious.
“The facts about sharks which I keep researching. How many years does the Great White Shark live? How long is the Hammerhead Shark? How is it possible for a 117 cm shark to eat a 150 cm shark? What will happen if a man goes inside a building where there is a shark containing big aquarium and shoots at the aquarium glass?” were his ideas.
“I am not sure if anyone will be interested in reading these facts on my blog. They can go and google instead,” was my counter idea.
“Oh yeah, this makes sense,” was his closing.
Therefore nothing worked out for this Monday post and all the ideas just rubbished out.
