Disappointments


Tonight I decided it was finally time to get writing, again. It’s been so long and I thought it might do me some good. The problem is that I’m not in a really happy place. I’m feeling sad and pathetic, and found myself wanting to write about disappointment. I know it’s not much of an inspiring topic, but they say you should write what you know.

2017 has been a really tough year. Really tough. And there’s more crappy stuff coming.

My short foray back into my blog and the writing world earlier this year was a short post that wasn't very positive, either.

In my adult life I've really worked hard to find the positive, and to be positive even in tough times. But this year has really challenged me and the challenges keep finding their way into my life. They say bad things come in threes, I feel like I'm in my 10th set of threes and it's hard to find that positive aspect of life.

I want to get this bad stuff out and move on back to positive. So I went online and Googled disappointment, wondering what I might find. And this quote appeared.
“Disappointment is really just a term for our refusal to look on the bright side.” Richelle E. Goodrich
Honestly, I haven't found the bright side, yet. But I'm going to try; to try and get my mojo back, find myself again.. and maybe write something happy and inspiring in the process.

Wish me luck.

What do you do?

What do you write when you aren't inspired or full of a love of life? What do you write when life gives you an unexpected twist that makes it seem somewhat hopeless? I haven't written for a long time and when I have the topics have been upbeat... musings about things, but generally positive. Lately, though, my life has been a series of bumps and twists... good and bad these last five years. And I haven't written much. It's not that the last five years have all been bad. It's just that there's been a lot of bad sprinkled in there.. and then when it's been good I've been taking it all in and haven't written.

I never set out to make my blog a journal. And right now, although many use theirs for that purpose, I'm not sure if that is where I want to go with mine. I don't know if I want to have a public journal, even if I don't name people. But I do know that I miss writing and miss getting my thoughts and feelings out.

What do you think? Should a blog be used as a journal?
