Last Friday was my last blog for a while.
This weekend, I had a real back to basics experience with the family. A weekend together, away from distractions, we camped, built fires, played barefoot football and ate around a camp fire.
I started blogging as a cathartic exercise, as a way to vent frustrations with the pace of change and to rail against “guruitis”. It has lead me to meet (virtually of course) some wonderful people and a small number of cynical windbags – people I hope to stay in touch with.
What I realised this weekend is that it will be far more cathartic for me to enjoy summer evenings playing football or reading with my children and conversing with my wife – free from the commitment I set myself to blog daily.
Being a private blog, I did it all as an extra-ciricular activity giving myself a day job and an evening “job”, if you like.
Taking a look at my big picture, that time is better spent with those I love.
I have loved writing, may blog occasionally or may even get “that book” out.
My priority for now, is to keep pushing the market in my day job and to invest all my spare hours into my lovely little family.
Stay in touch.
