It Takes As Long As It Takes: BEing OK With the Adventurous Process of Getting Your Sh*t Together.

 

Greetings,

 

I am writing this blog entry nearly 6 months after I declared that I would add more blog entries to this site, get more consistent, stay focused on this project, and blah, blah, blah. Well, “being as though” (a term my mother said I used quite a bit as a teenager for whatever random reason) THAT hasn’t happened, and, in fact, the opposite has happened since it has been 6 months since my last entry, I decided that I would allow myself to be more accepting of my particular growth process.

Beware of DOGma…and its owners!

Retrieved from FFRF.org

I’ve always grappled with this idea of not really “feeling” religion like that (simply meaning that religion didn’t resonate with me), yet calling myself “spiritual.” I would listen to people’s interpretations of spirituality, and listen to religious people tell me that I can’t be spiritual without having God in my life, which meant reading my Bible, engaging in fellowship with other “believers,” which would, perhaps, have to take place in a church. I just wasn’t feeling it. And I had difficulty explaining why I wasn’t feeling it because religious factions had done such a phenomenal job of dissuading me from any religious involvement whatsoever, so much so that I didn’t even have much interest in reading much of the biblical scripture to gain my own personal understanding of spiritual truth.

How to recover from being “undercover” so long that you start to believe your cover.

Hello world! That’s a helluva title, isn’t it? LOL Reminds me of the film Unknown starring Liam Neeson. The film doesn’t really have that much to do with why I chose this title for this blog post or anything, though. I just realized there was a correlation between like this title, and the movie. I just was thinking about that as I was writing…and then decided to write what I was thinking, so…um…yeah…OK… *insert awkward throat-clearing sound here*

Moving on….

How to train your subconscious mind: A simple analysis of Freud’s complex finding for modern-day scatterbrains.

Well hellooooo world! How are youuuuu? Yes, I’ve been gone for a minute, trying my best to manage the different things I’ve got going on in my world: school (my new schedule’s whippin’ me like cake batter), my daughter’s active social life (she’s currently putting mine, or lack thereof, to shame…smh…), the ups and downs of self-employment, and keeping my goals and ambitions at the forefront of my mind. Nonetheless, I know there are other graduate students out there leading active and demanding lives, who still would prefer the craziness over the mundane. Therefore, I will continue to write, I will not complain, and I’ll do better with communicating various ideas to all of you beautiful people! Muah! Now, onto the task at hand: the subconscious mind….
