Prompt Page 0002: Be the Change

Standard

 What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world?

I want my blog to reach people. Which makes me feel like I’m being arrogant and putting too much stalk in my own thoughts.

My blog is first and foremost for myself, and my own mental wellbeing. I feel that is extremely selfish of me, but it’s the truth. I write for myself, and the inner peace it brings me.

But I have enjoyed the connections I have made with others, and the amazing messages about how I inspire them. How they look forward to my posts and comments.

I am humbled that people follow my blog. And I cannot express the depth of my gratitude in mere words.

I like knowing that by sharing my experiences and thoughts that I can make a difference in other people’s lives. I can make them smile, or look at a situation differently. I can make the darkness and monsters seem less scary.

I don’t know.

I guess ultimately I want my blog to show people, myself included, that life doesn’t always suck.

And even when it does suck, it’s normally for a brief moment in time. Even if a situation lasts for days, weeks, or months, in the scheme of things it’s fairly short.

And even during that time, good things are happening; you just need to be aware, conscious. Mindful.

Life isn’t bad.

None of us travel alone. Sometimes we just need to be reminded of that fact.

  1. I normally write when things are not so great, when my emotional well-being needs help. But if I look back through my writing, I’m comforted by the fact that the days between the dates were good days. I wish I would write more about the good days, but it’s like prayer: You don’t really think about it until you’re at the end of your regular ability to cope.

    • I’m really bad about forgetting all of the good things that happen to me. Even super huge, fantastically special things seem to slip to the wayside when I feel like things are starting to fall apart.

      There’s no good left in the world. I’ll never make it through this challenge. I’ve finally met my match.

      Those thoughts aren’t as common as they used to be, but they are still there, lurking in the back of my mind, and I know they’ll take back over if I let them.

      When I went back and reread all of my posts I was actually really happy to see how many ‘normal’ days I had. How many little things I forgot that I had gotten done. And how the big terrible things that felt so awful at the time, really weren’t that bad when I looked back at it.

      Sometimes it’s a struggle, but I try to push myself to write everyday. Especially if it’s a good day. Those are my night lights when things get dark. They can’t hold back all of the darkness, but they help to make it less scary.
