is the juice worth the squeeze

That’s actually an expression my boss is fond of using. The question that we sometimes have to ask is whether the potential outcome is really worth the amount of effort necessary to make it happen. It can apply to damn near anything, and lately I find it applying to more and more aspects of my life.

Writing, rather sadly, has become one of those aspects. I haven’t considered working on my memoir in literally years now, at least nothing more than a “oh yeah, I’ve got that massive project that’s highly personal just sitting there collecting dust.” I don’t really feel a compulsion to work on it or to write here on my blog. It just doesn’t’ seem like the effort is worth it right now.

I have been spending quite a bit of time cooking, and knitting, and making jewelry, and doing glass art. Those activities feel more worthy of my time right now, and the feelings I get from doing them are more worthwhile. Not to say I won’t ever go back to writing as a hobby, but right now it’s not worth the squeeze. And all of this is to say, while I’m not shutting down my blog I likely won’t be writing on anything that even vaguely resembles a regular basis.

I hope all of you are staying healthy and are well, and that you’re doing the things that make the juice in your life well worth the squeeze.
