It’s been one of those days. There are so many topics I want to write about, but my brain can’t seem to focus on one enough to hit the “publish” button. This is the fourth post I’ve attempted to start writing today.
This is when I typically break out one of my journals. I can start writing about one thing and switch to another topic without having people question why I started talking about adoption, but then switched to materialism for a bit before settling on the general perception of the church in America. I’ve tried to get a full set of thoughts out, I really have. I’ve listened to music, I’ve sat in silence, I’ve taken a walk….this is apparently just the kind of day that my mind cannot be tamed.
So why am I writing this post? Why am I rambling on and on about something that has no sort of purpose? I’ve been on a blogging roll lately. I’ve written more in the past couple of weeks than I have in months. I feel like the posts I’ve published have had some good content and I’m proud of them. I want to keep that going, but I also am aware that the inspiration won’t last forever. What I’ve done in the past when experiencing a block is to just stop writing. I don’t want to do that this time. I want to push through and write something that is on my mind, even if it’s just short and simple and doesn’t have much to do with anything.
I know many people probably don’t really care what I have to say, but for those 45 followers out there, I want to put out semi-regular content. I want to be relatable and interesting. Part of the relatable-ness is admitting that writing inspiration isn’t always there. Maybe this is just an off day. Maybe I have too many thoughts running through my head. Maybe I just need that waterproof notepad to get those thoughts out.
