Just because I

think it or feel it doesn’t mean I have to articulate it. Lots of thinking/feeling things going on right now and while I would love to dump it all out somewhere, it just isn’t appropriate. At least not for me. I realize there are some folks who are very forthcoming in ‘public’; I am not one of those people.

I did post a bit about it on Facebook and my friends were oh so very supportive and kind, bless them, every one! But there is so much more and even as I am writing this, with all that is going on, I am crying. It’s not the end of the world and no one died but my brain is full of good and bad thoughts. What are you gonna do, eh?

As I was scrolling through blogs this afternoon, I realized there are blogs that I read every word of, no matter how many words there are, and others that I scan perhaps the first paragraph and then click off – sometimes because the topic has no interest or sometimes it is a post that is too long. And if it doesn’t catch my attention in the first paragraph I know I’m not going to be interested in the whole thing.

I’m that way with books as well. There was a time that if I started a book I finished it – no matter if I liked it or not. Not no more. I will give a book one chapter, just one, if it doesn’t have my attention then – bloop – closed, done, finished, over.

Perhaps because I am old, subconsciously I feel that I don’t have all that much time left so my patience is thin with anything that does not deliver instant delight. No time to waste here folks, no time to waste.

  1. Awww…. I’m sorry to hear of your tears, Grace. Yours is a blog I read from top to bottom… no matter how long, no matter the subject.

    There’s a lot I don’t say too…. but, at the same time, if I feel compelled to speak (aka: type) I do. I’ve developed quite a well-honed “devil may care” attitude about a lot of things, with my advancing years. And I might add it feels damn good.

    1. There is only so much personal stuff I care to share with the world at large, or even for that matter with friends. As for other things, I never speak publicly about politics and on rare occasions, religion, tho I sometimes speak about my personal beliefs I never talk about my opinions of religions in general. There are a lot of personal things I would never share and yet I have read other folks who just pour it all out.

      1. Yes! And I wonder what makes some keep their feelings (for the most part) hidden and some just belt them out on a daily basis? The difference in our personalities and life experiences, I suppose.
