You’ve noticed the poetry indexes going up yesterday and today, and you might be wondering what’s up with that. Well, I’m trying to find some balance. I know, that doesn’t make sense. Give me a minute, and I’ll try to explain.
I mentioned the other day that I got hit with a few clue bats in reference to how I’m acting, how people see me, and how I feel about my life and myself. I’ve been taking it all in and putting it into action. The poetry is part of that. You see, I’m not *just* someone who wants to become a motivational/spiritual teacher. I’m also a poet, and several other things for that matter. I’m not just one thing, and I don’t have just one love.
I realized that yet again I was trying to stuff myself in a neat little box. I have the credentials, I have the desire, I want to be something akin to Dyer, Beckwith and Hicks. But that’s not all I am, or all I’m good at. Unfortunately, I was narrowing myself, trying to stay “focused”, because that’s what people are “supposed” to do. Yup, I was following those useless, arbitrary “rules” that I keep saying we all need to ignore. alas, we all falter from time to time.
So, since being a poet is a part of my life that is important to me, I’m good at it, I enjoy it, and I’ve been horribly lacking it in my life lately, I’m going to get back to it. I know it’s not “nichy” if I post poetry alongside my self-help and wisdom, and I don’t rightly care. I am so many things, and I want all of me out in the world. Why can’t I be more than one thing? No reason at all, really. Trying to be just one thing makes me feel off-balance, incomplete, and I don’t like that.
So here’s the question for all of you, and I hope I get a lot of responses. I do value my readers, So I want to know, what would you prefer? Would you like it if I did the self-help/wisdom/spiritual stuff one day, poetry the next, and alternated days – or – alternate through each day, 1 wisdom post then 1 poem then one self-help then one poem. So you can vote: Alternating posts each day – or – Alternating days.
I’m going to try to write other things to fill in today and give you folks some time to cast your votes. I’m leaning toward alternating posts each day, but I’ll take your votes into consideration. I really want people to read and enjoy both. There are so many facets of me, I want to show them off.
