I was thinking the other day about why I blog and what my blog means to me. I don’t use my blog as a journal. However, you can get a sense of what I’m going through or at least my mood by what I’m posting. And I don’t really use my blog as a way to inform people (though sometimes I do). My blog is a way for me to somewhat document what I’m going through whether it’s through photos or reblogging quotes. But mostly I want my blog to be an inspiration board of sorts. Even when I’m going through hard times, I want to be able to look at my blog and see where I’ve been, but I also want to be encouraged that I’m headed somewhere even if I don’t feel like I’m headed anywhere. I want to be reminded that I’m going somewhere and that there are things worth striving for and celebrating. And I want to remind myself that God is with me no matter what is going on. So that is why I blog and I’m going to keep at it.
When people ask you how you are, do they really want to know? I’ve been wondering about that. My default answer is “pretty good.” That isn’t true right now. I’m not pretty good. Lately I’ve been saying that I’m okay. I don’t want to spill my heart out to everyone and I don’t think it’s appropriate to give a very truthful answer to that question all the time. I think I’ll stick to telling people I’m okay.
