Blogging about Blogging

Sunday, September 20, 2009

It's been a good week. I made peace with a couple of conflicts and life has been pretty uneventful for me; how nice! The weather has been wonderful and I am extremely grateful for all the good things I have.

I was thinking about the last time I moved to a new residence. While I found it to be incredibly stressful, more importantly I found it to be extremely liberating. I couldn't bear to bring all that junk along with me. At first, I carefully sorted through my "treasures" and got rid of what I didn't need any more a little bit at a time. As Moving Day drew closer, I found myself not thinking too hard any more about what should be saved; I was quickly eliminating everything questionable or no longer of any use in order to make way for a new chapter in my life.

I'm finding that same liberation in blogging. I'm bringing emotional junk into the light and finding it no longer useful. I find that the responses I receive from all of you to be beneficial and give me new ideas to explore. I'm giving wings to things that have been in my way for a long time; they've lost their power and I don't need them any more. Light heals and when new issues emerge, I plan on writing about them in order to weaken any effect they might have on my continued success.

I know that my past failed attempts at maintaining significant weight loss were because I didn't adequately "clean house." Armed with this knowledge, I will continue to sort through my accumulated baggage and work on traveling more lightly through life, physically AND emotionally.

And I know that my wonderful SparkFriends will be right there with great suggestions and comments to be part of this new chapter in my life!

    I totally LOVE this blog! You are such an amazing lady and your insight brought to light the same reason why I enjoy blogging. I never have blogged before Spark People. Now I have been doing so continuously since starting here. Although some issues that I have fixed, I went back and deleted three older blogs after reading them. They were emotional weight that I addressed and have gotten rid of.

    Thank you for helping me to this realization with your blog. Keep up the great work!

    I love this blog. You've heard the old joke about old baggage - like the butt of the joke, I carry steamer trunks, not just suitcases. I, too, am finding freedom in owning up to "secrets" that I never talked about before. Something about this site gives me permission to share without fear of ridicule. I have a couple of sisters at the site. One of my sisters is perplexed about my newly found comfort, not in the skin that will be, but the skin that I'm in now. I am very camera phobic and she just can't get over my willingness to share my "mummy" photo. As I explained to her, that's not me, the real me is inside crystallizing.

    I look forward to reading more of your blogs and getting to know you better, inside and out.
