Resistance – the many faces monster

Posted by Moshe Mikanovsky

My dear readers,

From my sketch book, Leaves, spring 2012

From my sketch book, Leaves, spring 2012

You might have noticed that I didn’t post anything new here since the beginning of the year. I missed the blog, and I hoped someone missed me…

So what happened? Why didn’t I write for so long?

Well, in one word – Resistance.

I allowed this monster control me, rather than me controlling it. I have written in the past about Steven Pressfield’s “The War of Art”, and how Resistance is the one big enemy of all creative person, so I should have known and learned my lesson. But sometimes, when the resistance is strong, you don’t even recognize it for what it is.

And the beast was frightening, and it told me many different things. Bad things. And I believed them.

But I am back now.

It is not that the resistance is completely gone. On the contrary, it will always be there, find its way to raise its ugly face and bite me. But TODAY I believe I am stronger than it, and TODAY I want it to be a small win for me.

In the next few days I will tell you of some of the things I have done recently.

Till then, be well!



PS I chose to decorate this post with a sketch from my sketch-book. I hope its feel of spring will spread out and bring light to everyone. It is my gift to you.
