I’ve been thinking quite a bit about freedom. I don’t mean freedom in the sense of doing whatever I want whenever. I’m talking about allowing the mind to be itself.
Thoughts, I think, are one of those things that are not only taken for granted but are often misunderstood.
The power of ideas is great.
“Thinking: the talking of the soul with itself.” -Plato
Based on that, the idea of controlling thoughts concerns me. Whatever crosses the mind is important. Every raw sprout is there for a reason and has a path.
My week was pretty good and moderately unstressful—this is not something I habitually say. I’m used to letting out a huge sigh on Fridays and saying, “That was a long ass week.”
But, not this week.
Some of it, I suppose was perspective. Some weeks I schedule a week that makes sense and others or for the super human. Here’s hoping.
Last week I took all off, this week was light in the sense I didn’t have a crazy deadline I was using to motivate myself. I launched a podcast this week, and I’m super stoked about that. Having my own weekly podcast is something I’ve wanted to do for a crazy long time. The popularity bar next to the episode is completely full, so I’m excited.
Yeah, this was a good week.
I’ve been worldbuilding for a new project that has been in the back of my mind for weeks. I’m making myself wait one more week before starting it. Next week, I am starting a new serial on my blog. A new chapter will be posted every Friday. I’m excited for that as well. It is titled, Elliot Granger and the Clueless Brigade.
I love contemporary YA so much, and I’m looking forward to sharing this story with you guys.
Well, I could keep going, but I’m pretty ready to watch The Vikings. I was deliriously tired last night and couldn’t get very deep into it.
My last thought for the post is this: every possible is there. I truly believe this. It’s dangerous to think too quickly about something. First impressions can be hard to shake but don’t always show the whole picture.
That is completely real. It’s not always what it seems. The trouble with common expression is that they are often overvalued because of the frequency they are heard.
It couldn’t be any more true. That like anything else, it’s based on the perspective of that who is seeing it.
Loss is real.
Laugher does heal.
I can see some things so clear, and others not to much.
Building a plot and living life, fine lines.
A path is something often misheard and overlooked.
Being open matters a great deal.
Well, that’s it for now.
Thanks for reading.
Until next time.
