What others think of me is none of my business!

I subscribe to a number of different and amazing blogs. Each is quite unique and satisfies my curiosity and interest about a range of different things. Some are really funny or witty – clever and I get a good chuckle :-). I also subscribe to some that are very inspirational with beautiful pictures, amazing quotes and uplifting stories. There are some blogs that I like because I have become fond of the people who write them because there is a sense of a meeting of minds or similar life experiences.

So, when I sit down to write I sometimes feel that I have run out of words. I get afraid of being boring or self-centred. I want to say things that bring about a smile, or shed some light or new insight into life experiences. I want to be positive and uplifting but some times I am not feeling positive – sometimes I feel really crappy!

One of my biggest, ongoing challenges in life is to just keep going and not to give up. There is always that tension within me, maybe not consciously but I do struggle with it. Maybe we all do to some degree.

That is one of the reasons I keep blogging, even when I am not feeling inspired. I figure I just have to keep doing it! If I worry too much about whether people like my posts or photos, I would come to a standstill. So I will keep writing….

until next time…

  1. You nailed it Lorraine: “If I worry too much about whether people like my posts or photos, I would come to a standstill.”

    I feel the same way. However, I do find that I’ve been censoring myself more and more as I get more page hits.

      • All pressure, stress, and angst is self-imposed. People, events, and situations may write a check out to us for lots of stress dollars, but unless we sign it (and I always do), we won’t impose it on ourselves. We all can be stress-poor “in theory”. 🙂

  2. Keep on trucking… There are days when I don’t feel like it and I just start with a quote or a word and the rest follows. I used to be the kind of writer who waited for her muse to show up. Over time, I have learned that we don’t have to wait to create, we just do it. Don’t give up. 🙂
