Sometimes I find myself wishing I blogged more; say, at least 5 times a week. Yes that would suffice, right? And then I realize I spend several hours a week thinking about what to blog for the two or some odd times I DO blog weekly. I spend a minimum of one hour each time I blog because I analyze every word, sentence and picture. Now, I am very proud to say that I enjoy my blogging hobby and it has been a creative outlet for me as I am not what you would call, "crafty with my hands" har har.+++That will hopefully change as I have secured two gallons of Silver Sage paint and am going to start painting my laundry room and bathroom ASAP. Baby steps, says Dr. Leo Marvin.+++
Still, I enjoy it when I have my many blog-worthy experiences and broadcast them out to the internet because that generally means I am living life in a way that is fulfilling and joyful and am EXCITED about it. At the same time, I feel a different sense of gratification when I am too consumed with errands, cooking, baby, and husband to blog. I feel busy and look forward to blogging later when there's time. Now, journaling on the other hand--much different. Always document, always put it into writing, always make time for it. I'm preaching to the choir. Blogging is similar but there isn't a subconscious pressure to put on a show for an audience. Blogging nation, keep blogging to your heart's content, I need entertainment, I really do love knowing "the updates" and there's nothing wrong with that! Just know that even if your life isn't blogged, it STILL happened.
"Happy people learn that happiness, like sweat, is a by-product of activity. You can only achieve happiness if you are too busy living your life to notice whether you are happy or not."--Frank Pittman III
In other words, "lose yourself," as Eminem would say. Right? He would say that? He had that song..
