It feels so good to start blogging again; during my long silence I had forgotten why I had started blogging in the first place. Blogging gives you the opportunity to express yourself and analyse your thoughts and experiences. When I first started blogging a year ago I had ran into a post by OnTechies “Blog more. It is good for your health” and it still rings true today.
I never considered myself as a writer, artistic maybe but never a writer (well blogger). I think that I am slightly dyslexic, thank god for computers and spell check! However I find that once I start putting a thought to word, the words just pour out. They are just my thoughts and other people might not appreciate them as much as I do, however I find it exhilarating to get my thoughts out on paper (metaphorically speaking).
More importantly you can write anywhere and express your feelings, insights and learning’s. With the internet and a blog you have an infinite audience, but it’s not about how many hits you get for your blog, although it is a great feeling others want to read your blog, it’s about the release of your thoughts.
I find it therapeutic and it helps me organise my thoughts, feelings and emotions and sometimes reveal a different perspective on things. Well it works for me anyway.
I shall leave you with a couple of quotes to contemplate
If I don’t write to empty my mind, I go mad. ~Lord Byron
What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind. ~Buddha (563 BC-483 BC) Founder of Buddhism.
Until next time,
Laugh, Love & Live!
