In two years.
If you ask why I haven't been writing much, I'll tell you "it's because I've been really busy finishing my clinical doctorate in physical therapy."
While that may be a decent excuse, it's not the real reason for my lack of blogging...
The real reason is found in this graphic:
As I advanced further and further through my graduate education (and my expertise slowly increased), I've come to realize I really don't know that much. I can't help but smile in thinking back even just a few years ago to how naive I was to the human body, movement, exercise, etc. I even had to go back and delete a few of my old blog posts as they were completely inaccurate! At the time though, I didn't know what I didn't know...which can be hazardous when you have a platform to share your thoughts AND you're looked at by some as an "expert" in the field.
Now don't get my wrong, I didn't spend 9 years of my life in school and 100K+ in student loans to finally finish and proclaim to the masses "I know nothing!" That's not the point.
The point is, in the past few years, the more I learned, the less excited I was about sharing my thoughts publicly because I honestly didn't know if they were "right!"
I have to admit though, with technology today and access to so many "experts" across the world, it's often times intimidating to share your thoughts publicly. A common thought is "what if I'm wrong? People won't believe anything I say anymore if they find out I gave false information!"
<<enter new mindset>>
I started this blog in 2012 with high ambitions and excitement to share information to the masses. That excitement slowly declined over the next four years...but it's back. I'm excited about sharing my day to day thoughts on a variety of topics. Honestly, I plan to use my blog basically as like my journal. It will be nice to get my thoughts on paper. I may not be right all the time, but this is my blog. My yard. My platform to share my thoughts. If I'm wrong, I'll admit it and move on. Easy solution.
