There are different sides to us that come about as we navigate through life. We may have a shy, serious, confident, or anxious side. There are many sides to someone and they are uniquely ours, they make up our personality. Some sides of us go quiet until they are awakened, or provoked, others are a daily part of who we are.
Blogging brings out a side of me that is seen on a regular basis, but also a side that very few people get to see in my personal life. By nature, I am a very silly and goofy person, I love to laugh and to make people laugh. My sense of humor is rarely seen in my blogs because blogging brings out a more serious side of me. Those who know me in real life know that serious is not typically a word to describe me, I am more of a laid back and goofy person. I very much enjoy talking about deep topics and life experiences, but not all people like to engage in that sort of conversation and even for me it takes a special person, one that I am comfortable with, for me to bring that side out.
I thoroughly enjoy blogging, it is such a huge passion of mine. I will actually be writing a blog post at some point dedicated to the reasons why I love to blog so much. Blogging takes me to a different place, a different world, it is almost like when you hear people who love to read say they got lost in a book, or when you sit down to watch a movie, how it kind of takes you away from your own life and into another realm. Through blogging, one can see my reflective, serious, deep-in-thought side, it brings out much more depth of my soul that I don’t show to many in my everyday life. My thoughts start to flow as soon as I pick up a pen.
Blogging can be very personal as the blogger is typically writing about their innermost thoughts and life experiences. I know many of my posts are inspired by these two things although my blogs are not extremely personal because I tend to direct my thoughts and experiences more to the general public in hopes that they will in some way inspire, enlighten, motivate, and make others feel connected. I also tend to indirectly link my personal life into my blog posts.
I suppose that maybe this is why people like hobbies, they bring out different sides of us, they are a form of expression, they allow us to be ourselves. Whatever you have a passion for, whatever sets your soul on fire, add that to your life and see where it takes you!
