Merry Christmas everyone! Sorry for late wishes. I planned to publish some writing on Christmas but something happened. It was a negative, stress and burdening situation. For some time, I thought that I could not write something positive and add value for you under this circumstances. That would be an escape from what I was facing. If I wrote to express the feeling of sadness, anger, disappointment, it would deviate the intention of this blog. So I fell into what is the enemy of productivity: procrastination.
This kind of thing, the negative period, can happen to anyone. I remember one of my favourite guitarist and musician, Allan Holdsworth, has the same experience. For years he has produced some albums with brilliant compositions. However, he experienced a divorce and other consecutive setbacks that turned him into melancholy. He was drowning himself into those negative situations. An album project has delayed for more than ten years, even it was not released up to now. And it took several years for him to get back on stage again.
This negative situation is so awful. See how negativity can turn a legend into a wimp. I still try to settle the matter. Thankfully, I soon realised that there is no reason to let myself drowning on this negativity. So I get back to what I do to put myself into the productive state: write. I know the first thing I do is to back at my laptop and start writing. It felt difficult at first, especially we are struggling. But I managed anyway. Thanks to The Most Dangerous Writing App which provides me necessary positive pressure to overcome this circumstance. This is the key. Just face what is really happen and see how you lead yourself out from the negativity.
In the end, I was satisfied. Despite dealing with this negative thing, I can write something positive without ignoring what is really happen. It is like turning negativity into positivity, a small achievement. And I feel better by the time I finished my writing.
