Dear Self,

I’m really into writing this daily letter.

It is a great way to check back in with myself, to put a platform under my day.

But it is a bit chaotic.

The content is unpredictable.

That’s exactly how it is designed, so is perfect.

Only, I’m getting the feeling that I also want to write about topics that I choose to write about rather than about ‘what I need to hear right now’, it’s a different intention.

Specifically, I’m interested in writing about social issues and my process of engagement, discovery and learning about these issues and how we can change things for the better.

I feel a bit overwhelmed by the idea of finding more time for writing…I’m not sure if this is real or noise…?

I could decide to write every day…and some days that is a letter to myself and some days it is an article about an issue that I am thinking/acting on…

That feels scary.

I’m so used to this letter being a daily foundation that I am scared of changing that ‘magic’. Fear isn’t such a great reason to not do something though.

But maybe that caution is telling me something important?

Time is a continual question for me at the moment.

I’m doing lots of great things, but there’s more. So much more. However, the process of saying no to some things makes the space to say yes, and actually deliver on other things.

It is important that I prune.

But what to prune?
