This little word creates so many different visuals!

Firstly, it comes the sense of being sick. Unfortunately, my little kitty thought it was a good idea to open the cupboard and get into the trash. He ate some foil and has been vomiting all day! (So we can all thank him for this title of reflection)

But vomit comes in other forms. Word Vomit, Visual Vomit, etc. So many times there are those distracters from your goals.

Those that tear you down could be using word vomit. They just begin saying things and before you know it you have become disheartened or distracted from your goals. Often you will see a sense of Word Vomit from gossip, negative thoughts, and via stress. I know I have had days where I feel like I have been battered by word vomit. Then I also have those days that I get upset with others and I just start talking and it just comes streaming out! I am improving on my use of word vomit, but I sometimes will hear it from others and it just derails things so quickly!

Visual Vomit is the idea of seeing so much and becoming over-stimulated. I find this when you are watching tv, working on the internet, or just driving. There are times you see mixed signals that you are not sure what will pay off for you in the end. You may see tons of skinny models showing off for the next best thing- getting all the attractive men, etc. Then right away you see a food commercial or picture and see how happy and successful people are in these pictures. These mixes messages commit a visual vomit for your senses to deal with.

These 2 main vomits are what I am working on developing myself not to become sucked into. Hopefully you have other "vomits" that could be added. These areas should not drive us into readjusting ourselves for whatever needs to be pictured or what our friends/ others say- but we should begin striving for what drives us, solely us!

    Great blog!

    I was attracted by the title and the first paragraph. I have a cat who vomits frequently, and always has. We think it's just nervous stomach. The vet can't find anything wrong with her.

    The idea of word vomit is a powerful one, too. We need to resist other people's influence when it goes against our own needs.

    Visual vomit - well the television and internet is full of that.
