While I am doing well for writing on 200 WaD community, I have been off coding over a month. Why? I didn't know what to code for. I do have goals and tasks and even #100DaysOfCode challenge. But I still have no motivation for coding.

The connection between coding and my self-satisfy is gone. I still in the circle of people loving coding, and they are the reason why I still keep my dreams because I know someone has achieved the ideal life I want. BUT ALL THOSE THINGS ARE ONLINE AND MY OFFLINE LIFE IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT.

Back to code, start from small, stay in a chain. I know I should do so but I failed, again and again, even writing these words down are hard for me. (Thanks to 200 WAD that I would force myself to clear my mind to see what's wrong with me.) As my experience, admitting the failures honestly would lead to two results later: one is laying in the failure comfort zone without guilty anymore, the other is doing the same thing in a new way to explore unknow success. The first is the way I buried lots of things, the second is the way I renew myself.

    @5plus6 try to use it to build something, that is how I continue to learn after so many years.

      @knight @brianball

      Thanks for your kind advice and encouragement. I really appreciate that. I know I should back to code for my dreaming project and I am not alone.

      Yesterday, my phone rang and the call was from Dialup, an app I found on ProductHunt but never worked before. I was curious to pick up the call and the next 30 minutes I was talking ideas of making my own product with a stranger in English. Actually, I have never talked that before even in Chinese. It's a secret because I think I would have no motivation to start coding for that. But I was excited to talk about it with a stranger who is a developer and was extremely interested in that. I felt kind of released and I knew it's time to begin.

      I'll go deeper, I'll build a thing. Thanks for all of you.

    @5plus6 - I've been diving deep into JavaScript and React these last couple of days -- not really deep --- but spending time. My idea is to go deeper and help others ( because helping them learn helps me ) --
