There's something to be said for 'just do the thing'. It's generally not easy and sometimes it may seem outright impossible, especially on low energy days. That threshold is very deceptive, a figment of our clever mind. It's interesting how many things your brain tries to 'save' you from, and the lengths it'll go to to make you avoid things.
Thank you for saying such sweet thing about my substack. You talk about this feeling of never being able to kinda re-start your blog after Livejournal. And it speaks volumes to me. I too had a LJ back in those olde days. But then it kinda ceased. And I had a ton of attempts of blogging on other platforms and it kinda never worked. I hope to find this LJ vibe here. Hope you will like what I write <3 Thank you so much!
