My New Job: Playing with Words

I am so overwhelmed with life right now. So many things to do, so many things to learn, so many things to create, so many things. Things…projects, thoughts, activities, ideas. The old so many places to go, people to see conundrum.

It becomes a conundrum because I wonder what my role is in life, what is my life’s work, how can I do my life’s work once I figure out what it is and contribute financially to the family as well as contribute to the good that our world so desparately needs. Whew. I’m tired simply re-reading that sentence. It’s alot to have weighing on my shoulders. It’s causing me to stop in my tracks and do nothing. It’s so hard to move forward that it is easier to stay mired. It takes so much effort, physcial and mental, to pull my feet out of the figurative mud and move forward when I can’t see where I’m headed and not sure that I’m even headed the right way.

My first step out of this morass is to break it down. I’ve identified one thing that when it’s comleted fills me with contentment and joy. Not necessarily while I’m doing that activity. That can be frought with self-doubt and a bit of mental anguish, but when I’m complete. That activity is writing.


I am going to write my way out of this morass of inactivity. One word at a time. I believe that this exercise will propell me forward towards figuring out what I want to do next with this life.

Join me on this journey?

    Well, I guess one thing you could talk about is memories of beettr times. Like they had the tweet your favorite Avs memory event recently.Or you could go the other way. I know I have heard some people say they were around for the old Rockies, and that their performance was to put it kindly, poor. Maybe compare and contrast Denver’s two NHL teams have the Avs slipped to being worse than the old Rox?Also jersey fouls. I heard you talking about them in the last few episodes I listened to, and I have seen some discussion on other sites about them. Maybe discuss more about what constitutes a jersey foul. I saw it mentioned that wearing a team which is not playing is considered a foul. What about teams that recently deceased? And do the rules change if you are attending a non-NHL game?But jersey foul or not, I rather like wearing my Avs jersey to our AHL games. Waited 15 years to finally get the one I wanted, gonna get good use out of it. (Plus, it is the closest I will probably get to feeling like I am actually at an Avs game for awhile. Only seem to be able to get up to Denver around playoff time, and that doesn’t look like it will be happening for awhile )

    These are some great tips on starting a blog and iedrdstanunng what your voice should be. I think bloggers forget who is listening or who they want to be listening as a prime example. I really, think that if you want a successful blog you need to figure out what type of engagement you are with your listeners and that niche community as well. You could know very little about SEO or the background but if you keep pumpiing out great content and engaging with your niche with it’s various sites, blogs, and forums people will listen to your voice I’m sure of it. I really like this post for various reasons and have gone ahead and bookmarked it for later use. Thanks!
