I had great plans for Thinking Thursday. However, real life as a mother of four children 3 of which are three and under is very pressing. I find that I don’t have the time to do the research that is needed and to form and write out my thoughts in an organized and easy to follow and understand manner.
I have benefited lately from the inspiration and wisdom of a very beautiful blog by the name of Tongue in Cheek. I love visiting this blog and when I do I have wonderful images and thoughts rolling in my head. I feel alive and happy.
Maybe, the best way to fight ingnorance and missunderstanding in the world is not through plastering it all over my blog. I would rather offer my readers words and images of inspiration and knowledge and understanding and love. I think this is more fitting to my personality.
I stopped watching tv for over a year once because I couldn’t stand to see all the anger and violence anymore. It is all over the tv in movies, news and sitcoms. Then, after I did start watching tv again I still refused to watch the news. I only read the local paper. I hated the sensationalism of the television media. Thinking Thursday has become kinda like that.
So, why would I be a person to host a Thinking Thursday? Doesn’t fit.
My heart is in the right place, but the method is not me. I am not a big person to argue and I don’t like when other people call others names like stupid or crazy. That was never my goal in doing Thinking Thursdays.
So, this crazy girl is once again revamping and changing the direction of this blog to something that is more me.
I feel happy when I do a post like Who said the French are cowards? or sharing a great blog or website like Daily Dancer. While I will still write the occasional post about something that bugs me like my Whos that Girl? post, I just cannot commit myself to doing it every single week.
I can commit myself to sharing something inspirational whether it be a website, blog, words, poem, video, image, etc. This is a more productive and pleasant use of my very limited and valuable time. I can commit to doing this one day a week. Easy.
I learned a lesson. I am who I am. I am not going to change and my blog is a reflection of who I am. I am someone that likes to see the beauty in simple things. Not the ugliness in silly things. There are better writers and blogs that have the time and knowledge to tackle the issues and topics that fit in a Thinking Thursday.
I am not one of them. I am me.
