￼I’m tired today
Not a lot of sleep
My ego took a fall from a great height
When I say fall
I may have pushed it
It exhausts me
With its endless petty fears
and unfortunately writing
Is sometimes where I find it
Hovering over my shoulder
Oh Lord don’t say that
They will attack
They will all leave no likes
Statistics will plummet
Perhaps we should go and look at statistics again
Bloody statistics – who’s great idea was that to the obsessive compulsive mind
First rule of blogging
Don’t look at the stats
What sort of person actually does that?
I would like those stats
On who doesn’t look at them
Anyway I am lucky
I have a wise force within – a bit like Yoda
To whom I cling
When things get out of hand with the ego
my inner Yoda is about as helpful as
“It is with her you must deal – not me”
“Sit with yourself or be sat on”
Sit with yourself and breathe or be sat on
Or be sat on
That’s what came out of my inner Yoda this morning
Sit or be sat on
Well I’ve been sat on all night
So I am a bit short of breath
And I’m also tired of editing
This blog post goes out with my ego tied up in the corner
Duct tape over its mouth
It’s desperately shaking it’s head
Tidy that post up instead
It’s just a meaningless rant
But as Seth says
“Sometimes you’ve just got to ship it”
Sit or be sat on – so now I’m doing some Yoga and meditation.
Guess I choose to sit.
I’m actually incredibly grateful for the follows and interaction that I have received here at WordPress – yesterday I just found myself taking everything too seriously and putting to much pressure on myself – that’s when I realised that just for a moment – I had lost the point of blogging.
This is a creative outlet that infuses me with energy and helps my other writing projects so much. The bloody stats thing had me by the eyeballs and I was overthinking posts – was this one too negative (plagiarism rant) this one too flippant (makeup thing – omg that was a selfie in there what was I thinking?)
I enjoy the communication and and meeting other bloggers as people follow and comment both here and on their own blogs.
This is what is important not the stats.
I just put this here to remember that and as a note to anyone who may have a similar experience.
Happy Thursday (it is here anyway) hoping for rain to ease the dry crackle in the air and on the ground. So if you read this post pray for rain for Australia – everywhere needs it – well not up north – so don’t wish for it there 😊
