warning... garbage blogs ahead

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

I don't do blogs very often. I know that they are a tool. They are instrumental for evaluating habits and your health journey in general. They can be inspirational to others. They can lay out your goals. They can be a place to just get things off your chest. So why don't I do them?

If I was to be honest with myself. It is probably fear. I am afraid of others.. even if I don't know anyone face to face who would be reading these... to see how totally mucked up I am. I don't know if I could write these without my general mess-up-ness shining through.

So, I am warning anyone who is reading this. Don't read my blogs. At least for a while. They are going to be filled with garbage.

    One woman's garbage is another woman's treasure. You never know when one of your blogs can help someone else. It may help you too so it could turn out to be a win, win!

    people write about anything and everything - and absolutely nothing. my experience has been that as long as politics and religion are avoided, the odds are you will find thoughtful supportive responses. try it! emoticon emoticon

    Blogging can be very cathartic and ppl don't have to read or respond if they don't want to. It's a great way to purge away! Let's see the result in how you feel after a period of time of blogging. Ps: I have garbage too! It's ok.

    I write blogs rarely. My feelings are that I should write something "important", that taking people's time, a very precious resource should only be done if you have something good to give them back.

    So I have my own reasons not to write often.

    I enjoy reading your blogs and read them every time I abled to. Nobody is perfect (my dear wife came close to being perfect until she married me). I don't write blog often either because of dyslexia and when I do write I have to use voice recognition software. Nevertheless, if you blogs serves you, motivate you or allow you to vent, will I say let it all hang out.

    By the way, my wife give me the crutches back when I asked her to help me into the bathroom. You know she's almost always right but she makes for a terrible maid . . . emoticon

    I was the same way. I have PTSD, Panic Attacks, Anxiety... I'm a mess. I'll get really excited about something for a while, and then realize it won't happen for a while, so I won't mention it for months... I was so so nervous about anyone reading my blogs til I realized that most of the people reading my blogs are so supportive. I get an occasional hater, but there are so many understanding people here on Sparkpeople.

    Cheering you on!

    I have yet to blog anywhere on any topic. Good luck with the garbage purge in progress.

    The sooner you get garbage out of your system, the better you will be. We all go thru this. Hang in there.
