Morning Pages-Who you calling idiot? :)

mornongIt’s healthy to write all the crap logged inside my flappy brain every morning before I truly begin my day.  By truly begin I mean before I interact with the rest of the world.

Why is it important?  Because yesterday was a full day of doing things the right way and doing things the wrong way.  My brain likes to highlight all the wrong ways for me and run a powerpoint in my dreams and upon awakening to remind me.  “Hey Matt, you screwed up in all these areas yesterday.  You gonna fix em?”

Damn it, well back to the drawing board.  It is a good thing though as my brain is making me aware of these things I have to be ok with allowing the self-criticism help me grow and not turn me into a self-hating monster.

The Monster is real and he has had life before.  Like Frankenstein, he could rise again if given enough fresh body parts and an electric shock.

But, I am not going to allow that to happen. I am going to learn from yesterday’s foibles and turn them into today’s victories.

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, that’s why I litter.

Anyway, this is not the most informative blog post as it really is just my thoughts as I think them and I don’t always have life-changing metaphors running through my mind.

Sometimes just the act of writing even when its utter nonsense can keep your machine oiled so it does not rust over.

I like to say that, I never run out of stuff to write It is simply at what level am I willing to accept the shit that I do write.

Writing for me is fun, it is expression in physical form.  A simple or complex physical form depending on how you look at it.  So, even if I am not writing an incredible best selling novel or even a useful blog post, I am still writing something.

I have found that writing something is always better than writing nothing.

So, write something, even if all you write today is a comment to me that says, “You are an idiot.”  That is better than not writing at all, and you are the idiot you jerk.  haha.

Welp, See ya later.  welp

I am a writer, a storyteller, a yarn-spinning freakazoid. My life is full of two things today, lessons and blessings. I write fiction mostly but I also love to write about my life and the things I go through on a daily basis. Writing it out inspires and motivates me and that's why I do it. Plus if it does that for me maybe it will for someone else too.

  1. “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, that’s why I litter.” Great line. I too fed my monster a bit too much yesterday and it left me feeling defeated. But I woke up today, so I’ll try again. 🤗 Thanks for posting. 🐡
