Quality Over Quantity… My Way

July 22, 2014

Articles

I do well from a little guidance and appreciate the leadership of people I can respect, but I’ve had it with being too scared of failure that I don’t go with my gut and do things the way I think, instead of the way others think.

I’m not even going to try to post something everyday anymore. It’s too stressful. I understand that most people don’t want to read really long articles, but trying to break it up is too difficult for me. I’m not that kind of writer, nor is it what comes the most natural for me. Therefore, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and discouraged which (more often than not) results in nothing being posted at all.

So forget it!

From now on, I’m just going to write. If you like it, you’ll grab a cup of coffee and find time to read it. If not, that’s fine too. I can think and pull things together easier and faster if I’m not so worried about how to break it all up. That’s just not my gift or strong suit, so I rather focus on what is.

I’m at a place in life that demands redefining myself and that’s part of what this is.
I hope you stay tuned…

    I stand in awe of those who can write everyday. I have enjoyed much of your writing. I fully understand that you have to gather your thoughts in order to post your best works. I’m with you on not posting every single day. Redefine your impossible!

    Jessie,

    Holding yourself accountable to other’s standards (other than Jehovah’s) never works out. Some have really high expectations and think that because they do so for themselves or because they have the ability to do daily posting, etc., that others should as well. But what is great for one person is not generally great for the next. We all have different amounts of time to devote to blogging, patience, abilities, and interest… just to name a few. As imperfect humans, we lack the ability to see what God already knows…. our limitations. Also, we don’t always remember that the individual accountability we bear covers ALL our actions. Just as others cannot be accountable to us for what they choose, we are not accountable to them. Comparing ourselves to others and trying to force ourselves to meet their expectations only leads to anxiety, discouragement, and lack of motivation which all cause lack of productivity and unnecessary stress from worry…..

    It’s okay to have goals, but it’s important to remember that you can only do so much. Take into consideration the amount of time you have available, how long you can concentrate, and even the WAY you write best… and act on that. Not on other’s expectations. My personal preference is to read something that comes from someone’s heart and not because they are forcing themselves to post something. Quantity is not always better…. unless you can find an incredible sale at your favorite store. Stick with the quality, be true to yourself and your circumstances. Those who are truly interested in reading about you and your life and thoughts will stick around.

      Wow… thank you for the inspiration Marie! To consider the WAY in which I write best (verses writing for another’s expectations) really speaks to my heart and soul. It’s time to figure out what “being my true self” really means now (this seems funny considering my overall story, lol!) Blessings and best wishes Marie :)

    I agree…write what you are passionate about and those who feel the same way about your pieces will find the time to read and appreciate them. Have a nice day, Jessie.

    Well I for one love your writing, I think is an easy read. Don’t allow fear to ever keep you from your passion. I do get to the point sometimes that when I’m over 1000 words I feel long winded, but fall back and realize this is what God is impressing on me. Looking forward to your next post.

      What a great compliment David ~ thank you! My greatest hope is that it’s easy to read, while being inspirational and relatable where it needs to be for the reader.

      And that’s just it, when you talk about writing what God has impressed upon you… When I let myself go (not getting hung up on performing in some way) then the words come with such ease and so naturally. I just love that, because for me it means that it’s coming from the soul more so than it is the mind (if that makes sense.)

    Staying tuned…I wish I had the patience to write long, research based posts…but then I fell naturally into the narrative form…Writing is so strengthening, and you show it well💛

      Thank you! As a writer, people have voiced that I shouldn’t put things out there that aren’t ‘properly’ written either with correct punctuation, paragraph breaks, etc. but that’s what an editor is for later. It has scared and hindered my writing too much. I’m just going to write and spill my guts and see what comes of it! :)
