We all have things we need to do to keep an even keel — blogging, exercising, reading, cooking. What’s yours?
Blogging really is my outlet for keeping me on an even keel. It is my outlet – to let out creativeness and frustration equally. Now I, in no way, consider my writing to be excellent (I do have my shining moments once in a while, though) but for me it is a way to get thoughts onto a canvas if you will. Writing it out helps me to focus on a few things and it’s an outlet for me. Cause there are some things that you can’t discuss with people unless they think like you or even understand the things that you care about as much as you do or even know the stuff that you want to write about.
As you may know, I often write out my dreams (if I can remember them by the time I get to my computer) so I can reflect on them and remember them for ages. Most of us don’t and dismiss the dreams that we have (even scary or weird or disturbing ones) as soon as we wake up. Now I haven’t jotted down each and every dream that I have had (I must have an active imagination because I do have a lot of dreams and I do have some weird ones) and I don’t wish to forget them. Even the ones that make be feel sad as I read about them later, I still treasure them because it’s my mind reminding me of things that I miss and hold dear to myself.
So blogging is the way to go for me. At times I’ve also “voiced out” my frustration and anger in the form of the words that make up a post. It’s my blog and I should be able to do that. If someone doesn’t like it – too fucking bad! You can choose not to read it or not to come back here anymore. That is your freedom of choice. This is mine. This is my piece of internet property, I pay for it, I maintain it and I demand that I let my thoughts out. It’s not harming anyone.
