Stream of consciousness


Ever try to hold on to something so tightly only to wake up one day and realize you didn't even really want it any more?

How free is free? Not free enough for some people and too free for others. Which one are you?

When watching reality TV, I always wonder if people know the difference between confidence and arrogance. Do you?

Are you doing what you want to do? Why or why not?

When you listen to music, what do you hear?

How often do you just sit still and listen?

Do you have a problem with quiet?

Are you a pleasure reader or information-only reader?

  1. I love the quiet and wish I could enjoy more of it. Reading is both informative and pleasurable for me. I like the new blog look!

  3. YES, yes, yes and when I let it go, it wasn't as hard as i thought it would be. I know I am not doing what i want to do. I fear it is too late to try now. When I listen to music I listen to the melody, the words and the message that is being conveyed. Sometimes it makes me smile and sometimes it makes me cry. I love quiet and I am a pleasure reader.

    Nope. I may have realized it wasn't as important as I initially thought but yeah...I still wanted it.

    Neither. Free is exactly right for me.

    Naw...I don't watch reality TV because it's setting some folks up for a rude awakening. They start seeing that ignorant nonsense on television and think it's the way people are or should act. That will get you cut. I can't imagine my girls and framily doing the type of backstabbing and catty ish these people do to each other and then sit next to each other and have dinner or party with each other like nothing went down. Um...negative. You keep negative people AWAY from you...you don't keep them in your inner circle. Sorry...this one is major for me.

    Are you doing what you want to do? Why or why not?

    Yes. Thank God. Yes.

    When you listen to music, what do you hear?

    According to what I'm doing. Relaxing? The music. Working? My thoughts.

    How often do you just sit still and listen?

    EVERY.SINGLE.MORNING.

    Do you have a problem with quiet?

    Nope. People who can't be alone with the quiet of their thoughts are dangerous in my opinion.

  5. No, I am not doing what I want to do because I don't know what to do to become who I want to be.I don't know the first step.
