Journal Decisions...

I have noticed lately when I’m in the car or just about to go to bed, or what have you, I start making introductions to posts that I want to make to LJ. Posts that reveal things about me, that I want people to know, in some respects, but probably don’t at the same time – it’s why I think of them in the car or just about to go to sleep, where I make promises to myself that I’ll do them later.

Sitting at work just now, with the computer at my fingertips, I find myself doing the same thing. Though, in this case, it’s more a sense that I have quite a bit of time on my hands and not enough to keep said hands busy, hence this posting. It’s better than twiddling thumbs. But, I digress. That’s not the point of this post.

I’ve decided to take a step forward. I’m going to make a serious effort to post the stuff I keep meaning to post but never do. I have a feeling that most of it won’t be interested or wanted by most people, but in that respect I don’t care. It’s my journal, and if I want to get too wishy washy, needy, revealing or what have you, I’ll do it. Sometimes a person has to just vent, about anything and everything, and life in general.

No, no. This isn’t in response to some comment that anyone has made to me. It’s more a response to my own misgivings about what I should and shouldn’t post. There are many occasions where I have things to say and I simply don’t say them, but they still need to be said. I have a tendency to let things build and build, until finally something explodes.

Also, this serves a forewarning that I don’t intend to filter anything that I write, beyond possibly putting it behind a cut if I think a cut is warranted. You get me, unfiltered. This could be good, or bad, depending on how you view things. I suspect a mix of both.

-applauds- That is a decision that takes a lot of courage, ma'am, and I have to show my appreciation of it. -smile- I will look forward to those posts as I do find they held to remind you that you are, on some minor level, connecting with real people. Venting is good for that. Plus, it helps when you can say, 'At least that did not happen to ME!' -wink-

It's funny... I make a lot of beginning-posts in the car, then forget what it was I wanted to say once I get back to the computer. I also end up finding lately that I have been doing more private posts, which surprises me. But I am glad you are going to post more, I think that is good. :)

I do that all the time. Start posts in the car and then forget when I get home and sit down. Usually, I'm more focused on getting to Firan or something else, that by that time I've forgotten I even wanted to post at all. But then there are some posts which I start in the car, remember, and just decide, you know... I don't want people to know that about me.

I've never made any of my posts private. They've either been public or friends only. I've tried writing in my private journal, the bookish one away from a computer, but it doesn't appeal to me. Not sure why. Used to be I loved writing in it.

By the way, I love this poem and thought I'd share it with you.

by Robert Frost

We make ourselves a place apart
  Behind light words that tease and flout,
But oh, the agitated heart
  Till someone find us really out.

'Tis pity if the case require
  (Or so we say) that in the end
We speak the literal to inspire
  The understanding of a friend

But so with all, from babes that play
  At hide-and-seek to God afar,
So all who hide too well away
  Must speak and tell us where they are.
