I got a comment on my blog from someone who said that blogging was like being in charge of your own personal insane asylum. Well I tend to disagree. I think it is just the oppposite.
The thinking process that is lightening fast in your head , that never is quiet, that is constantly changing and growing or shrinking but never stagnant is like being in an insane asylum. Blogging makes you bring out the voices and look at them and use them and organize them to make sense. Putting dreams on the mirror of the computer screen is helpful and sobering.
It is like a business plan for your life. Write it down, weigh the pros and cons, examine the pitfalls of going this way or that.
As I have mentioned here several times, writing down ideas is paramount to three things. a. getting more ideas, b. calming down the raging storm of excitement, and being rational for a few minutes.
In my world rational is sort of the bane of my existance. I hate being rational because rational means somewhere someone is going to say no to what I want to do so I avoid it. I like to think everything is possible all the time.
But this belief has gotten me pretty far.
The only part of rational I like is when it stops me from going too far and doing damage in any way. You want damage control in your life.
That is why i go to super conservative church. It grounds me and helps prevent damage.
Its a good combo.
