I've Been A Lazy Pig

I used to turn to my blog for therapy. Yes yes yes...I know I sound delusional but ask any blogger and you will see that sometimes they treat their blog like a shrink. It's natural. Don't believe me? Start a blog.

Anyway, I've not been updating my blog so often these days because well...there's the issue of work and laundry, and kids, and cooking, and cleaning the floor, and answering emails, and replying to SMS, responding to instant messages....you know, the everyday thing?

Yeah, that's given. So, I feel like kind of in need of really good therapy sometimes but my fingers ache from too much writing all day, so, what do I do?

I turn to blogging...but a slightly different kind of blogging.

When I feel like saying very short simple things, I turn to twitter. When I have something longer to say that requires more than the 140 spaces given on Twitter, I turn to facebook. And if not, then I just turn to my phone, switch on the audio recorder and say something totally baffling like 'I think my toenails are too long and I can't find the blasted nail clipper. This is depressing me.'

But I think after all the time that I have spent on twitter and facebook, I still feel a kind of unexplainable emptiness in me. At the end of the day, a shrink is what I need. The others turned out to be just General Practitioners.

I need to let out in my blog after all.


p.s. Please read in jest because no, I am not going 'woo-hoo-hoo' on you. And my toenails aren't really THAT long. And that picture is not a picture of me dead. Just me plonking my head down on the table...my arm reaching out as far as it would go, with my phone's camera and snapping a really un-stylish picture of myself to prove a point. 

You can breathe now.

Comments

For me, I started my blog as a way to find my voice. I've always had ideas that I've kept to myself, specifically about my spirituality. I started the blog and presto, the words started flowing and now I feel like I've been sharing my thoughts and people have found them interesting enough to read, comment on, and come back for more. So, maybe, my blog is like my therapist; I do feel better after sharing an idea, or what I started calling tools, with the new friends that have been reading and following along. Thanks for sharing what you are writing on your blog, I love your enthusiasm. I'd love your feedback or comments on my Blog, Daily Spiritual Tools. Blessings, Sherry
Marsha,

How true! Blogging is one great therapist. When the buzz about blogging started, I was thinking about writing a book, and blogging was the last thing I thought I'd go for. But then my book always seemed a long way ahead, and when I finally started blogging, the satisfaction was beyond compare.

Btw, there's no way you can call yourself lazy, considering that you write pretty often even after all the everyday stuff that needs to be taken care of. Well, you might have reduced the frequency of your posts, but you are much better off than others who cannot even do as much... like me for example :-)

You've certainly got great writing skills! Keep up the enthusiasm!!

Cheers,

Space Sweepers (Netflix): Movie Review (2021)

Space Sweeper the Korean Sci-Fi Blockbuster hits Netflix 2021 Image Source: KoreaTimes Let me come clean. The first thing I thought when I saw Song Joong Ki leading the lineup for this movie was ' Is this OK?'  ' Hhhmmm.....what about, you know...his personal life', and as a fan of his previous personal work, I had the same doubt I had when he was casted in 'Descendants of the Sun'.  Sorry, Joong Ki. 😳 But the concept of a sci-fi movie in the Korean film platter was enticing. The trailer didn't look half bad either. When it comes to space movies, Hollywood has always been the Big Guy. We expect Hollywood to deliver the big guns and explosions while Kdrama land is all mush, love, arm grabs, ice-cold kiss scenes, love triangles, and of late, time traveling.  So, sci-fi? Interesting. Honestly, I went in with an empty mind which is not necessarily an open one. Ditched the reviews, writeups, Youtube reactions and everything else and hit the 'watch' butto

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore . There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me. For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media. Since we were more like partners in crim

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun. I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose. This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-) For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, reme
