What is This?

I have been struggling writing this blog as of late.

The last couple of entries I found myself almost obsessing about the next entry. Wishing that I could immediately sit down and write down whatever thought I was having at the moment. After practice, I would instantly start composing the the next entry in my head. Barely giving myself enough time to even let the practice absorb.

How much of that is healthy?

I am still trying to figure that out even now, as I write this.

The main reason I started this blog is to get the information in my head out into the world in hopes that someone will find what I say valuable. From what I have seen, people tend to go through life keeping the innermost motivations secret. Fearing that they wont be understood or, even worse, they are ridiculous and need to be forgotten or repressed. I wanted to counteract that and put myself out there. One of the scariest things I have done in a while BTW. To try to be a little bit of living proof that, while its scary, it’s ok to get your thoughts out in the world and even a little rewarding to do so.

So, thats why I started it… So what is the topic of this blog?

I guess, i’m not really sure…

I don’t want to limit myself to any topic really. Tai Chi is my main focus in life right now, and it touches every aspect of my day. Influencing the way I think through problems at work, to how I handle conflicts with coworkers and friends. So really, in my mind, everything has some aspect of Tai Chi.

So really what I am saying, as much to myself as anyone else, is that I will be writing about pretty much everything and that it is ok for me to do.

But it still leaves the question, how much writing is ok? How much of my day is ok to think about what to write next?

So, I guess it would help answer that question if I try to define this blog more broadly.

As anyone reading this could probably figure out, especially from this post… It’s a way for me to work out problems I have in my head. Putting them down on paper frees my mind up from having to think about it. It makes it real and it’s actually easier to see a solution.

Ha ha, well now. Since that is out there. I guess I am just going to write as much as I damn well please :). I’ll just write whenever I feel like it, maybe even just get several days ahead in my posts. Wouldn’t that be a trip!

There are no real rules when it comes to self expression, at least in my mind. The only glimmer of a rule in my head, isn’t even really a rule. It’s just a hope, that getting myself out there will help someone who just needed that extra little nudge to follow through with something they have a passion for.
