I’ve always been a good starter. I love getting things off the ground. Unfortunately, as a writer, I’m not a great finisher. When people ask if I’ve written a novel, I squirm. I’ve written 3: unpublished, half-finished. Being unpublished is less of a crime than quitting. It’s like starting a marathon, then ducking out half way to go to McDonalds.
A few recent major life events have made me realise how much ‘unfinished business’ can create a psychic weight in our lives. An invisible object, it holds a distinct shape and size and has a colour and aura all its own.
Unfinished business can bear down unconsciously. It can make you feel sluggish, lethargic and finding day-to-day tasks difficult to complete. You won’t be aware of the root of the problem at first.
