Something to look forward to every day. Somewhere to unload your thoughts. Something that gives others some pleasure too. What more could a person ask for? I'll tell you, this blog thing is really working out for me. Regardless of how many readers I have, writing things down is really a great release for me. Not to sound selfish or anything, I hope it's as good for you guys as it is for me ;) But, I highly recommend it to anyone, you don't have to be in a crisis in your life, as long as you have things you want to share, you've got yourself a blog page. And the comments are great, thank you for taking the time to drop a few lines, I really appreciate it.
I know it's not taking all my pain and stress away like a magic wand, but the few minutes a day that I get to do this, I am completely submerged in a world that feeds my creativity, as well as nurtures my psyche. Not to mention the solitude of just me, the keyboard and my thoughts, it's almost like a meditative state. A few solitary moments a day is very healthy for all of us, it helps us recharge and reconnect with our inner self. It might be a hike or a walk in the morning, or a yoga practice and meditation, which have both helped me in the past, or even just a few minutes of reading something that you enjoy in silence. Wherever you might find that solitary confinement, try to enjoy it and lose yourself in it completely. After all, we as humans, no matter how much we surround ourselves with people and things that make us feel good, in the end it's still just us, alone in our own shell, so the more we nurture that self and find comfort within that shell, the more happiness we can find and in turn exude that joy to the ones around us.
