Hello to you all, on this beautiful day in May. Today is yet another Monday. The most consistent day in my current life. I still think it's super insane how I really have legitimately kept up with writing something every single week. Insane! If only I can begin to expand this same sense of discipline to just one more task for one more day. Well, now that I seem to have a good grasp on the Mondays, I can begin to look for other areas of expansion. Yes, yes I know, as you can probably tell, today I'm not particularly sure what exactly to write about! It happens sometimes people. I just go with it until something formulates... I used to always wonder as a kid, do old married couples ever run out of things to talk about? Is there anything new left to say to each other, or has everything been said? Have all of the stories been told, all of the feelings been conveyed in the best way possible? I realized that it's frankly quite impossible to run out of things to talk about, for the simple fact that life is always evolving into some sort of uncharted territory. There is always a new plot twist to be developed. There will always be some sort of new combination of events, places, people, or things. There are endless sentence/word combinations for us to utilize ever so eloquently to further get a point or idea across. There is so much more to be explored and discovered! Now I wonder, will there be ENOUGH time to say everything I need to say...
Looking back on some of my earlier writings (the old blog site), I noticed that a lot of my pre-consistent writings were a tad negative. Which, ya know, in the grand scheme of things, I feel like I had to get some of my stresses out there into the world! Writing is such a great outlet for that. I took a slight turn, for the better probably, and begin trying to put a motivational spin on each post. Sort of like a silver lining to the occasional gray cloud. This is how Motivational Mondays began!
Before I even began posting my writing online for the entire universe to see, I would write in notebooks. Secret notebooks! I remember one of my favorite things to write in was a Winnie the Pooh diary (with a lock of course). There, in the diary, I could be my most uninhibited. I could say exactly what I wanted, and exactly how I felt. Even if I couldn't have the courage to say it out loud. That all went downhill when my evil little sisters stole said diary, highlighted all of the "juicy" parts, and showed it to my mom. Which in turn lead to an impromptu interrogation about each highlighted infringement. Sigh. And to this day, I have no idea where this diary is! Whitney if you are reading this, I might have left it over Blair's old apartment. Can you check and see? Anywho, after that, I figured, why not write with the intention of sharing with the world? Then again, this happened around the same time that social media was getting more popular. So EVERYBODY began to think it was a good idea to share every fleeting thought. Luckily, social media began with character limitations. The people who truly had something meaningful to say moved it over to the more intricate "blog".
Since I wasn't the most popular person on the web, I figured that most of my writing would go unnoticed any darn way, so I figured I could be a bit uninhibited like in my diary. Why the heck not. As the years went by, I honestly still have no idea who all even reads this thing. All I know is, that it has the possibility to reach much more than my measly locked diary ever could. In addition to speaking honestly and freely about all of the internal, external, eternal, even detrimental aspects of my life, I realized that it was also a good idea to put some positivity out there as well.
Nothing pains me more than seeing a super famous celebrity, who has literally MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of "followers", and absolutely nothing valuable to say. We are all given the power to emit whatever sort of aura we want. If I have one follower or a trillion, I want to always emit positivity. With a touch of hilarity. Smothered in truth. With a side of occasional attitude. Just know that whatever it is we do, there will always be someone listening or watching. We have to decide how exactly to use the words and talents that we are all given, to keep the momentum of life going. We all have the power to be inspiring. Doesn't even have to be on a large scale at all. Spreading a positive light to just ONE person can make all the difference.
p.s. No, but seriously, I really wanna find that Winnie the Pooh diary! I do remember it being pretty juicy.
p.p.s. The current celebrity world is actually very disappointing. Like, why does one need all of these people following them if they aren't gonna say anything worthwhile?
p.p.s. It really is a beautiful day outside. I still need a company Ipad so that I can blog on the beach! (*cough* birthday present *cough*)
