I have been writing in my journal a lot lately. I call it mush, but it seems to keep me sane.
My journal is entirely private, and I wouldn’t ever want to post it publicly. Back in the old days when I wrote in notebooks, I would never keep them for long for fear that someone else would read what I wrote. Now I write “securely” online in my Penzu journal. There’s this litte bit of uncertainty that it is not really private, but I’m taking the chance! I write about my daily life, or my kids, or how great my boyfriend is, or the stories I make up about what I think other people are thinking. It includes alot of emotional out-letting, kind of like a good cry.
What does this have to do with writing a featured post, you may ask? Time. If I’m writing in my journal, then I’m not writing something to publish, although it is often a catalyst to something I want to share. The featured post idea comes from Blogging 101, which I haven’t ended up participating in so much after all. And since I am, after all, Embracing Uncertainty, I hesitate to announce that I will consistently have a piece on a particular day of the week or month. That would be too certain.
I wrote the above a few days ago. Here it is Saturday morning, January 31. It’s been a crazy busy week at work. Some say it is because of a full moon, or Mercury is in retrograde. I think life is just like that sometimes, and we don’t always know why. The lull will come.
I’m enjoying my coffee in my favorite cup with my favorite “Advice from a Dragonfly” on it.
Spend time near the water
Enjoy a good reed
Zoom in on your dreams
Keep your eyes open!
JUST WING IT!
And that is the conclusion of the matter. In the uncertain future, I have plans for other blogs, poetry, books, and perhaps a featured post. For now, I will be gloriously and consistently inconsistent and random, fluttering here and there and everywhere like my friend the dragonfly.
