I don’t know much about blogging. I’ve had an aversion to the word, but it may have some redeeming value after all. I loved the movie, “Julie and Julia” and I could tell that Julie’s commitment to bake and blog had a positive impact on her life. I want that. My novel is finished and safely off to the publisher. I need to embrace something new, a new vision, a new…life.
It occurred to me that a new human life takes nine months of gestation. I could commit to that. I could probably do anything for nine months—even blog. Imagine! What new vision and new life might emerge? It’s exciting.
Drawing from the author of “The Happiness Project” I decided that my blogging should have a theme. Julie became an expert French cuisine chef through her blogging. I want to open my mind and heart to new life and growth. A monthly theme seems best. After all, I know I can do anything for at least a month. But to begin properly I really need to let go of negative attitudes, which are counterproductive to growth. So, for the month of September I plan to give up grumbling and complaining. Or to look at it from another perspective, accentuate the positive.
In my blog I hope to share my journey through the humps and bumps of my daily walk. Since September is for letting go of negative attitudes, one that I plan to let go of right away is my disinclination to follow through. For September, at least, I will follow through on a daily blog.
Please join me on this journey.
