Daily Prompt: Finding My Way

Daily Prompt: Million-Dollar Question.

Why do you blog?

Thanks for the great idea, Paranoid Guy!

When I originally thought of starting a blog it was going to be for the purpose of tracking and writing about our Route 66 trip.  I would write about the planning, the preparation and obviously all about the trip itself.  However, once I got my blog set up I discovered I had other reasons.

I’ve always known that putting my thoughts and feelings down in the written word helps me to put them in perspective and the beginning of my blog just happened to be a rather tumultuous time for me.

So now I blog to sort things out.  It helps me a great deal, to get things out of my head and onto the blank page means freeing up space in my mind.

The flotsam and detritus taking up space in my psyche, threatening to take me down to the cold dark depths of despair is somehow exorcised when put on the page, becoming words that no longer have a hold on me, no longer have the power to bring me pain, no longer run rampant through my mind.

I blog to heal, I blog to share, and most of all I blog in hope that someone else can read my pain, and see their own need not be secret.

About Reviewer Rose

Hi, my name is Rose, I'm no longer in the flush of youth, I have a common-law husband and two teenaged daughters, multiple pets, and more debt than I'm comfortable with! Anything sounding familiar? Well, its all too familiar to me and I plan on changing a few things around here. I'll keep the husband, kids and pets, but some things just need to change! I am embarking on a journey of discovery. Warning, this blog includes discovery of self, writing, learning and growing. There may be posts that you won't be comfortable reading, but I have supressed some things for so long, things I don't want to keep anymore, so will leave them here on these pages. I hope you will follow while I live, learn, heal, try, review and share, and I hope you can grow along with me in my pursuit of betterment!

    I love what you said about getting things down on paper freed up space in your mind. I, too, need to free up some space in my mind. Very good read. 🙂
