I recently had one of those life lesson dreams. You know, the ones where someone pops into your dream and tells you what you have been telling yourself but just needed someone else to say.
I had a dream that a coworker popped onto a table all I Dream of Jeanie like and told me, “You know what you need to do then, right? Just give them up and go back to it.” The amusing (or weird, depending on your take) part of it was that the dream was about Facebook, twitter and this site.
I think I was feeling guilty about abandoning this site and the 14 years of content I have put into it. Social media is killing my desire to write and babble on. If I can’t get what I am thinking about out in 140 characters or less, then it isn’t worth writing about. That’s not true and my subconscious was trying to tell me.
I don’t think I will give up twitter and Facebook. I am using them less but I need to start using my site more. Perhaps the dream was really about getting back to ME and not focusing on everyone else. Me being the site which is an extension of me and social media being my way of getting information to others and helping them, which I am guilty of doing constantly in life. If one can be guilty of helping that is.
Well, this was more therapeutic than it needed to be. Thanks for being there my blog. My old friend. Let’s try to do this more often. I’ve missed you.
