"The Battle of the Internal suzyQ"... stay tuned for next week...
Oh, the freedom it brings to my life.
But, oh, the anxiety that follows close behind.
Does that sound like I envisioned it would? Correct grammar? What should I write about next? What if I run out of things to write about? Am I getting the point across that I have agonized over the last hour? What can I do to inspire and touch my readers? What is the purpose of this blog?
(Can you tell I have an analytical side?)
So, then my psychiatric side must quiet and console my endless thoughts.
She tells them:
"As long as you are making yourself happy with what you write, nothing else matters. Never worry about running out of things to say- life happens, and when it does, your story will unfold along the way. No matter what, your words will somehow touch someone out there- end of story. Now, only you can reveal the purpose of your blog- think about it."
After much consideration, I answer, "Well, I started it as a creative outlet and a place to showcase some of my amateur photography. But, it turned into a place where I express my thoughts and it has taken me in many directions unimaginable. It is a confidence builder, friendship maker, and much more. My blog never ceases to listen to everything I have to say, without the slightest complaint. I guess that the purpose of it would be to challenge and uplift my own life, and hopefully lighten the load of some other people's lives as well. I want my readers to arrive here and feel at home, and for the stress and worries of their everyday lives to dissolve... knowing that anyone has received any kind of inspiration from my words gives me the greatest satisfaction I can ever have."
"Well, suzyQ, there ya go. Next time those crazy thoughts start buzzing again, tell them they will have to mess with me."
I love my psychiatric side.
