So, I Haven’t Written A Long Post In Awhile

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.

Daily Prompt: Conversation

In this age of devices and technology are we having real, genuine conversations anymore. Other than what you see on chat shows are people engaging in dialog that can make change, make a difference, make sense. It seems that talking and action can be two separate things. It’s interesting how conversations can change things good or bad. So our words have so much power that its necessary to choose them wisely.

Rambling About Talking

I don’t talk as much as I used to but that is still too much, I think. Getting a word in edgewise in some conversations can be difficult though. I am one that likes to fill the space that is void of sound. Communication is important though and requires listening too. I do need to listen more. Talking can be hard when you want try to find the opportunity to share what is on your heart. Sometimes there needs less words and more actions though.

Tongue Tied

The fear of saying something is the fear of saying it wrong. You know what it is to be tongue tied and the awkwardness of making a point without being misunderstood. In your head you rehearse it and it makes sense but when it leaves your mouth you screw it all up. Words are like bullets you can’t take them back easily if at all. Communications are life and if you aren’t able to say what you mean where others can understand then its a serious problem. I struggle with this daily and sometimes it’s a matter of confidence and worry about saying something the right way without offending someone. Life can be difficult when you are trying to say what you mean to say.
