The other day I was watching a Derren Brown programme and in it he told this woman he would be following her with hidden cameras and setting up scenarios that would cause her to make profound decisions and consequently change as a person. He did no such thing but because the woman had this in mind she saw deeper meaning in her daily occurrences, reflected on everything intently and made profound changes to her ways of thinking and conduct by the end of the week.
I spend a lot of time thinking about why I blog, what's the point, why do I enjoy it and what is this satisfaction I find? I had put a lot of it down to the sharing part of blogging. The "putting it out there" and receiving feedback. But after that Derren Brown programme I wonder... Is the real value the fact that this blog makes me look for meaning in the mundane? Is it that it brings out the essential optimist in me?
After all I wouldn't have much hope in gaining faithful followers if I ended every post in the negative! So it does make me look for the happy ending even just in a crappy day. That's cool. Essentially everything in life is about perspective. Glass half full or half empty? A bad day or an opportunity for growth?
I'm really grateful for my blog this week. It's been a great resource to help me problem solve my Mummy blues. The solution was back-up... And back-up was called. Good times. Happy weekend all!
If only these guys could write a blog... I'd wanna read that blog...
1. We are no where NEAR the stage where spare clothes aren't required.
2. Find a happy ending to your day. Everyday.
POP BACK FOR OUR HOP LATER!!!!
