How my brain works...

or maybe I should say, doesn't work! Before I started this blog, I had hoards and hoards of ideas about what I would write about, how I would inspire my blog readers, how it would be deep and meaningful yet still funny and enjoyable, how others would look to me for my wisdom and encouragement. HA! Ya right! LOL! Seriously, I can be a bit of a dreamer. I have plans, ideas, thoughts, dreams and then there's reality. And so of course, as soon as I start my blog, I can't think of anything to write or am plagued with these thoughts, "no that sounds stupid, that's weird, people will think you're annoying with that, who writes about that?!, that could come across the wrong way," etc. etc. and so my blog sometimes remains inactive. And so does my brain. It's like freezing on this big test you're about to write. (Okay, so that might be a bit of a stretch, comparing my blog to an exam.) But that's just how my brain seems to work, or not work, sometimes.
Oh and another thing, I had all these amazing ideas of things that make me happy but when I went to write them out (see previous post), I couldn't think of them all. I got stuck. I felt like a deer caught in the headlights - well, that may be an exaggeration (which I might add, is a rarity for me - HA! Right, just ask my husband about that one. LOL!). But I couldn't remember them all. So I finished it up and wouldn't ya know it, the next day, I remembered the rest of them.
Hey, maybe I should start writing stuff down - making lists. Goodness knows, I have enough notebooks/journals lying around here (it's just a mild obsession of mine)!
So there you have it, a peek into my brain.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend. I plan on finishing up my HOF entry (there, I said it, I'm entering! Why? One may never know but it's all part of those stinkin' new years goals I made - is it too late to change them?). Wish me luck! I think I need it!
