Blogging has changed my life … in a very unexpected way.
Do you talk to yourself? Yyyooooouuu knnnooowww, that ever present conversation that plays in your head as you go about living your life? I can say that I don’t really talk to myself anymore. These days, I blog to myself.
Talking to yourself sounds more like conversation at times. It rattles on. Sometimes it can be negative, especially if left unchecked. If you’re not paying attention to what you’re thinking, you may move to and dwell upon the “yucky” stuff in life.
But, since I began blogging, I find that I now blog to myself.
Not specifically a blogging phenomenon for me, I’m always asking God to point out the spiritual/physical parallels. So, the spiritual/physical parallels are always coming to light as I write in my head.
But, even my basic mental “conversation,” is more healthy since blogging. I think a little s.l.o.w.e.r (which is a GOOD thing!!) with a more positive slant. I focus on the good, even when the bad creeps in.
I even e.m.p.h.a.s.i.z.e
and … space
and create prose.
It’s a really quite nice, actually.
And then there’s the fact that I am usually working in the yard alone …. it may be all day Saturday when my littlest is off at visitation and my big kids are resting and playing. It may be an hour before school, as the sun gently slides over the neighbor’s roof and gleams through the telephone poles that line the streets. Sometimes, it may be a quick twenty-minute stint before dinner. No matter when, it’s most often a solitary endeavor…. which is conducive to wandering, uninterrupted thought.
So, May I Ask You a Question?
Have you taken up a hobby, craft or activity that has changed your life
in a way that has surprised you?
