A Blog A Day Keeps The Soul Joyful...
I walk around inside myself searching for answers to pondering questions, for relief from undue stress, and for my spiritual center of gravity — that which holds me down. On this journey within I stumble on thoughts — many thoughts — struggling to get out like the labor of a pregnant woman struggling to push past the pain to bring the world a new life.
To many, blogging probably seems trite, boring – just too commonplace. But for me it is a wonderful birthing process. It is sometimes a laborious struggle as I search for words to mirror my thoughts deep within my soul. Once I feel the push of words entering the world I then begin to try to make sense of their meaning for me and perhaps the world. I twist them and turn them and sometimes hold them back because they seem not to be ready to come. Or perhaps I am not ready yet to receive them.
Many of these new thoughts that I am trying to birth come just before dawn as I wake from a dream state that seems to be sending me a message of some kind. At other times I am inspired by a beautiful quote, hear a song, or I am just stimulated by the actions of human beings as they maneuver through this crazy world of ours. It may take me days to decipher the meaning of these often scattered thoughts from my soul. But when they finally break through it truly is a beautiful thing for one that loves putting pen to paper so much as I do — giving birth to just another way of looking at the world. Now I am able to share these thoughts with others thru blogging. I don’t blog everyday – that would be too much for me – like going through labor daily. The thought of doing that every day seems torturous! But so many writers blog these days that there is enough out there for us to enjoy newly birthed thoughts from many souls 365 days a year.
The universe brings us joy and happiness in so many ways. Sharing our thoughts and feelings is one of them. So I thank the bloggers that I enjoy following for their labor to bring new thoughts, new feelings, and new ways of looking at the world from the depths of their souls. It is truly a labor of love.
