YOU MAY FIRE WHEN READY

Its been months since I last posted something, I guess no inspiration came across me. However since I felt anxiety is creeping in, I find the need to express myself, channeling my feelings here. Speak my mind out, perhaps ease it a little bit.

Since I want to write something, I tried scouring the internet for some inspiration. Little did I know that I find it in a blog that I follow (Opionated Man). In one of his latest posts he discussed fear. Fear not of monsters, goblins, demons etcetera but fear of being unable to remember his loved ones, family and friends.

Then it made me ponder of my own fears. Yes, I fear of rejection, condemnation, death, alienation etc. But instead of going through bullet points of every fear that I have, I’d rather discuss 2 fears that I…

#SoCS – Awkwardly

Today I am creating a sign on my blog that says “if you were sent here by Linda, go back to her blog. She is much nicer and look! A community blog challenge! Join the fun!”
I wouldn’t ask her to run your online bar though. It might go out of business… -OM

Verily, I say I really get myself into some messes. Like, I don’t think about what my own Saturday posts are going to look like. If you’re looking at this post and thinking, “Why the hell would I hire an editor who starts a sentence with an adverb … especially one like ‘verily,'” know that the prompt made me do it!

Yes, it’s my prompt.

I blame it on lack of coffee.

So, would you look at that! It’s Saturday already! The plan at this point is to take Alex to a movie today–either “The Kid Who Would Be King” or “A Dog’s Way Home.” I’m waiting for Alex to decide. I don’t particularly want to see either of them, but you do these sorts of things for your kids. Especially when they let you sleep in ’til 9:30. Aside from when they woke you up just to tell you…

An Upturned Soul

Why do you read? Why do you write? What inspires you to to read? What motivates you to write? Do you lose yourself or find yourself in words?

What are you looking for when you read or write?

Once again I’m going to share some posts which sparked a glow within when I read them this week, and the thoughts they inspired in me.

First up is:

Cage Dunn: And What Then?

I don’t know whether this has to do with my having dyslexia, or whether it has to do with how I learned to read, or something else, but my mind likes to play with words, including names.

When I see the name “Cage Dunn”, I see “Caged One” instead. And while reading his post wherein he answers questions from a friend about why he writes, the thought which sprung to mind was – he writes to release his…

Sam H Arnold

Are negative interactions as important as positive?

Having set the challenge to increase my followers by 1000. I have become obsessed with checking my stats.

Today I noticed that in two hours, I had lost one follower. Just one follower, but to me this one follower became the most important person to my blog.

Before you all worry about the level of my sanity I went from 941 to 940 it was very noticeable.

If only I could ask that 1 follower why they had unfollowed? What post made them unfollow?

I hadn’t published any posts that day so the reason wasn’t obvious. If I had published a post on the skills of President Trump in women’s rights, I would have known why.

This obsession with a lost follower is also only limited to my writing. On social media, my stats go up and down constantly.

I have noticed…

The Lupie Momma

When I’m hurt heartbroken, hell really hath no fury like a woman scorned.

I’m passive aggressive like it’s an Olympic sport.

I have so many saved heartbreak quotes that I can toss one out at a moment’s notice.

I will share every single sad song lyric like a DJ spinning tracks at a club.

I plot revenge like an author plots their story.

I lash out.

I argue.

I’m petty to Nth degree.

I talk a lot of smack for someone who is crying behind every post.

I give an illusion of no fucks given as I wipe tears away from my eyes, and wondering what I did wrong.

I silently pine for you to apologize and ask to make up while I’m silently cussing you out as I scroll through your page.

I hope you wonder who I’m going out with, when I share a snap of me…
