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!
