Yesterday was trash day again, and I still haven’t found that blue mattress. Where did that little guy take it? I was driving Morgan to school yesterday morning when I spotted the box spring hanging out by the trash cans. I hesitated to drive up and take a picture because what if it made us late? Then I told myself that fortune favors the brave, and I drove straight instead of turning left. Chalk up another win for my only regretting what I did instead of what I wanted to do in 2017.
Morgan was still asking where we were going when I stopped to take the shot that had been bugging me ever since I had seen the little guy dragging that mattress away. I explained that I hadn’t gotten the shot of the abandoned chair and the left behind box spring, and I had been regretting it ever since so the shot of the box spring would have to do instead.
I hesitated before starting a blog because I wasn’t sure what I would write about every day. Even worse what if I could find something to write about, and nobody read it? Does a blog that no one reads really exist? How many of those half dead blogs are out there? I’ve definitely run across blogs where frenetic energy was captured for 6 months and then nothing. Zero. Zippo. Zilch. Where did they go?
It finally got to the point where the urge to create it to spread a positive message to beat back the daily message of hate was just too great, so here we are. Now blogging has become slightly addictive, but I feel like I’m struggling to find a consistent voice. Let’s cross our fingers and hope that practice makes perfect.
I’m noticing that finding topics to write about gets easier with practice. It’s just like a muscle that gets stronger every time you use it. Sometimes it’s easier to snap a quick picture while I’m out on my daily walk, and I may be driving Andy crazy making him wait while I do it. Colorado makes it easy to get good pictures. I can’t wait to take more summer pictures.
Looking for positive things to share has made my life better already, and I really wasn’t expecting that. I feel like I’m becoming a happier person because I am looking for the good in life. I might also be happier because I turned off the national news channel about 2 years ago. Who knows?
Thanks for stopping by, and have a blessed day!
