Flitting thoughts

by Ginger on January 27, 2011

I have a lot of big thoughts rolling around in my head–thoughts on daycare, thoughts on work, thoughts on motherhood, thoughts on internet drama, thoughts on dieting. But with all those thoughts, not one of them seems to settle long enough for me to write about it. They’re all in my head flitting around together, bumping into each other, like some drunken kids stumbling around a dance.

Why bother telling you all this? I don’t know exactly, other than this is the place where I dump out my brain. Writing things here, even incomplete things like this, helps to settle my overactive brain. It helps me to focus. It helps me to let go of somethings and to grab on tighter to other things. I can’t NOT share this stuff apparently, even when I’m not really sharing anything.

Anyway, so I’ve got nothing over here. So instead, I’m going to direct you to some of my favorite posts of the past few days:

OK, the cat one should come with a Kleenex warning!

Thank you.

Know what you mean about the dumping of thoughts..it’s the safe place, even when there’s nothing to say. I often turn up at my blog and just stare at it. Willing it to make me feel better. I guess because blogging is therapy? So the blog is my therapist. Except I’m not paying it. Maybe that’s why it doesn’t work sometimes. Hm.

Thanks for the link love.

My blog is totally my place to dump my brain. Just writing it out, even in stupid, babbling prose, really helps to settle my mind.
