I have no sense of who may be reading the posts and whether they are interesting or not. And to be very clear, I have no delusion that I am a writer. I am not even sure that I know what my blog is about… I do know they are the ravings and rantings of me – however, do they matter? I enjoy putting shape to my thoughts. It is common for me to problem solve by talking “in draft” and finding a conclusion through that process. Writing the blog is like that. Talking to myself “in draft”. I put my thoughts and reflections down then it takes my mind in a new direction. Sometimes, even reaching a decision and/or a conclusion!
I have been reading over my early posts and this captured my attention from 18/12/2012 …….. It has suddenly become apparent that I live in approximately six parallel universes and the power jets have been re-boosted!! It is true that I have a number of aspects to my life however; the choice I made was to focus the blog on PCH, the garden and the lifestyle we love.
So what is the meaning of this particular ‘monkey monkey underpants’ moment, I ask myself? It has come about as I was documenting my reflections of 2014 and I realised how deeply personal my thoughts had become.
I was exploring very emotional reactions to numerous things; extremes of disappointment & joy, dislike & love, envy & pride, discomfort & confidence. Suddenly I thought – is this what I really want to share? WHAT do I REALLY WANT to share? Does anyone actually read it and does it make any difference? Does it matter if anyone reads PCH Blog? Does my blog have to only include PCH and PCCS highlights?
Well, I guess the answer is, that it is my blog and I can write and say whatever I want….there are no rules and if no one reads it – does it really matter?
2014 was a huge year and it was also a blink in time…I have had numerous moments I am very sustained by and some moments that I have learnt valuable life lessons from. I have firmly grounded some wonderful new relationships and I have also freed up some others.
The ebbs and flows of 2014 continue to reinforce the wonders of the circle of life, love and living.
