Okay, so who knew that we were already in the middle of October? Seriously! Where in the world is the time going?
My writing has been a little lacking, wouldn't you say? And it isn't for lack of things going on in life that I'm not putting pen to paper....or fingers to keys. Quite the contrary. I have so many different things on my mind, it's CHOOSING what to write about that's the problem.
I've read that the key to a successful blog is to be consistent in posting and even to post ahead so that you're planned out and have interesting things for people to consider throughout their day. Obviously, I'm not in the market for having a "successful" blog. I am, however, keeping it real and sticking to my original purpose for writing, which is trying to keep in touch. It used to be keeping in touch with family and now it's keeping in touch with whomever is "out there". But it's also become a place to keep in touch with who is right here...me.
It's easy to fall into comfort here and when you're in comfort, you don't often stop to notice what's happening around you - or inside of you. I picture it like slinking into a large, soft, feather-full duvet where I just close my eyes and fall asleep to anything outside of myself. Yeah, some days are like that.
Then, other days are so filled with emotion and reality that I don't know what to deal with first and I'm spinning around and around on a ride much like the one Jake affectionately calls the Tilt-a-Hurl. It's not pretty.
I'm looking for some balance and hoping that if I spew out everything happening here, I will be able to find some rhythms in life again.
So just a warning: I can pretty much guarantee that the next few postings will be anything but pretty and most likely anything but insightful. They will probably mean nothing to anyone but myself. I encourage you that, if you're bored, just walk away. But, if you're kooky like me and like to see what other people's REAL lives are like, read on! We can make my solo therapy session a group therapy!
I just had a friend post on Facebook that if you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, go together. I love that. I guess that would be my interesting thought for the day....although stolen, it's filled with hope. And I've been needing some hope.
