I’ve lost my blogging groove so I’m going back to the basics with NaBloPoMo (National Blog Post Month) a daily writing exercise organized by BlogHer. They have a theme “Fall” and provide daily prompts, but I can write about whatever I choose.
But fall is so much more than a season. We’re talking about falling in love, falling down, and falling apart.
This month, we’re going to look at how gullible we are. We’re going to embrace our failures, figure out what we stand for, and look back at how problems have resolved themselves. There will be time to consider how long it takes you to fall asleep and how fearful you are of heights. By the end of the month, we hope this deep look into your own psyche will get you to fall in love with yourself all over again.
This really resonates with me because I love fall as a season and I definitely feel my blog posts falling apart into little sentences and fragments of thoughts, even words. Sometimes I feel like I am standing in the kitchen, fully aware that every ingredient and each utensil needed to complete the recipe is at hand … but I remain immobilized, unable to pull it all together into a meal.
To inspire me, I start with a beloved song reenvisioned by “The Piano Guys” on YouTube.
