Today I was looking at my blog and I discovered I haven’t written a long-form post in awhile. Usually, my posts are short and concise because I am not a prolific writer. Sure there is plenty to discuss in the world but maybe there is too much to chose from. It’s my goal to chronicle and curate the sacred, serious, and silly things going on in my head.
Sometimes that means a picture, a video, a quote, or other sorts of media that can get my point of view across. Paying attention to stuff can be the best inspiration for my blog posts and I do hope they are interesting or at least tolerable to the reader. I do try to be aware of the fluid attention span of those who visit.
I enjoy stringing words together to form sentences like the next person but sometimes it can be tedious to write for writing’s sake. I do have a post about talking rattling around in my head and the irony there is that I am going to write about it. Let’s see how that goes.
This post is not even as long as some I come across so you can see what I am talking about here.
All any of us can do is to keep on blogging, keep on writing, keep on posting. As in life, we have to keep on keeping on.
Yeah, I am doing that word of the year thing all the cool kids are doing and my word for 2021 is “Processing”. What does that mean exactly? Well, it means for me to process and think about stuff that has happened over the past couple of years. Sharing my results with family is essential. Maybe a little meditation will help and definitely some blogging.
I don’t know what to do with my feelings sometimes and that causes me great confusion and some pain. I need to sort through the stuff that is on my heart and in my head. Yep, I picked a weird time in history to start this processing thing but you know there is no time like the present.
I manifest and speak into the universe this time in my life. With my creator at my side, I shall process the things that I need to make me a better version of the good person I already am.
Yes, I would like to cancel my subscription to 2021 after this free trial. All kidding aside, this year has started out with a bang, it got very rough, real fast. I hope things calm down as we go along.
You win some and you lose some. That is how life goes. Accepting losses is a statement of character and gives one the driving force to try again. When it involves power and politics then it’s a whole new ball game where some who lose shouldn’t try again.
Those who lose in the game of politics should have some grace about them and realize that when it’s over, it’s over. The people have the say in winning and losing in this case. It’s OK to lose and if you do it well people will respect you for giving it your best.
Maybe some folks need to realize that it’s not about wheeling and dealing your way into winning because it doesn’t work like that. It’s time to move forward and to prepare for a new chapter in the lives of people who have suffered so much.
It’s time to let go of the past and embrace the new things to come on January 20, 2021.
As a church-going type person, I have sat through many digital worship services in these days of COVID19. Currently, my parish is meeting outdoors in-person to keep people connected yet safe. YouTube and Zoom have been instrumental in keeping many churches going and offering their parishioners the Word and Sacraments.
This graphic is a humorous take on watching church online. I do like the no parking, coffee, and relaxing in my pajamas but I would never ever mute my priest. He’s pretty good at sermonizing and that sort of thing.
No matter how you practice your faith I hope you have found a way to stay connected and to receive blessings from your spiritual community.
Friends, I am going to try to lighten up the content you see here. We all can use some levity. However, the world is a place of suffering and pain that cannot be ignored no matter how hard we try. So in my future posts, I will try to have a balance of the sacred, the serious to the silly, and stuff on the fringes. Also, a video or two to keep things interesting.
I realize it’s my blog and I can post what I want, but I want to have a place that is fun as it is pointed, relevant, and reacting to current events. That is why I am posting vintage toys and continuing to complain about Monday’s and the state of the world. Thanks for hanging with me all these years and for connecting here. Feel free to respectfully comment.
I encourage everyone to have a balance and to keep on blogging. The blogging community needs your voice. Let’s have some fun. Peace and love to you all.
