We are buried beneath the weight of information, which is being confused with knowledge; quantity is being confused with abundance and wealth with happiness.

I have been having what I call “brain aches”.  It feels like some wires are not connected properly.  I can be listening to something but if you asked me what was said I would tell you I haven’t a clue.

My usual excuse would be blame it on the medications.  But I wake up and still feel like this.  I have to think what tv programs did I listen to the night before, I just cannot remember.

I find myself frustrated, cranky, and all that goes with those two things.  I truly cannot put my finger on the issue, yet I know somewhere deep there must be one.

If I feel this way, what does the person who has not been able to work at his/her job feel like.  They have to put food on the table, keep a roof above their heads.  Their level frustration must be at eleven!

Then their are all those who are grieving but cannot give their loved one a proper home going.  How must they feel?  I can imagine the utter hopelessness they must be experiencing through everything.  It truly breaks this heart of mine.

So, this fifty-eight year old former pastor prays that there will be a relief in the near future soon!

A Heaping Dose of Doubt


“I seek strength, not to be greater than other, but to fight my greatest enemy, the doubts within myself”― P.C. Cast    Quotes About Self Doubt

This staying in is starting to have some ill affects to me.  Now, it could be things that have been ingrained in from my youth.  Today after I wrote my post, “Back to The Future” and I hit the publish button I just had a wave of self doubt come over me.  

Maybe, it is a total flop, people will have negative comments ( that has never happened to me). I just couldn’t shake those flashes of thoughts in my mind.

Growing up wasn’t a complete cake walk. Being bullied, laughed at, and only minimum support from my dad.  My mother did all that she could do to boaster my esteem.

 I found the great website that has all means of self esteem boosting sayings.  Click on the link directly after the above quote to find them.  I think I will use some of them on a weekly basis.

Everyone sometimes need a shot of encouragement now and then.  If you are having self doubt, I can tell you, you are not alone.

So, I am going to pull up my boot straps and get back up and keep on writing!

On The Lookout!


I feel confident imposing change on myself. It’s a lot more fun progressing than looking back. That’s why I need to throw curve balls. David Bowie

For this post I decided to do something a little different.  I have written about how and why I write.  

Now I would like to jot down some things I look for when I read other blogs.  They may contain all or just one or two.  Then I would like to hear what you look for.

  • Is it relevant
  • Do I relate to it
  • Does it contain information that I can use
  • How do I feel while reading it
  • Would I like to read more from the same blogger
  • Is it a blog that I would tell others about

Those are just some things that I may look for in blogs.

Ask yourself, what is it that I look for in a blog?
