Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.
Day 22’s Topic: Brainstorming.
First off, I want to throw out some apologies in case some of my blog posts this past week in particular have been a bit too dour or anything like that. I would like to pretend that everything is A-OK for me at the moment, but they’re not. Things suck, so I don’t want to sugarcoat it.
It’s something I have picked up over the years. When the going gets tough, hiding from your problems doesn’t make the issues disappear. They still will be waiting for you at the end of the day, unless of course you do something about them.
During those particular days where a lot of my options are exhausted, it goes back to something I keep telling myself – “Spend more time brewing and less time brooding.” If you have the time and energy to sulk, feel depressed or whatever negative-filled activity you could subject yourself through, don’t.
Instead, and this is a big INSTEAD, convert those grim feelings toward something productive and positive.
For instance, a random thing I have found myself doing a lot in the past two months is just getting an old-fashioned notebook and then jotting things down by pen. Oh my gosh! It’s so retro! Writing something by hand!
How absurd … How absurd!
But hey, whatever works will suffice. That’s the way I see it.
Anyway, I find myself just scribbling random notes and tidbits down all the time. It could just be simple plans for the next day or they could be me brainstorming stuff up for various concepts I want to develop or pursue.
And other times, they’re just little notes like the one below.
