The other night I was trying to write a blog post. Trying being the operative word. On my editorial calendar for Wednesday, it said I was supposed to be doing my monthly favorites list. And I was on board with that idea all day when I saw it listed in my to-do list. But then I opened up my browser that evening and sat there for the longest time, not typing, just thinking. And I came to the following conclusion:
Who gives a shit?
I mean, seriously. I could give you a million things from my wishlist, or things that I've already purchased and loved. But what exactly is the point? Are you going to run out right this minute and buy it (or order it online) and have a life-changing experience? What purpose does it actually serve? Why do I write about these things when I really don't give a shit and I suspect that you all really don't either?
So, I came to another conclusion:
It's time to hit the reset button.
Time to get back to my writing roots. I started this blog almost 4 years ago with the intent to share my writing and my thoughts and express myself. I don't ever want to force myself to write anything. I want it to be organic and have some kind of meaning. Whether it's a memory or a poem or how I'm feeling at the moment.
Anyway, I'll stop ranting now and just say this - thank you for being here and reading. I hope you'll stay with me as I figure out what the hell I'm doing after all this time. At least it's Friday, right? Cheers.
