Call me silly, crazy, wise, or neurotic...but I can not stand it when my computer files get out-of-control. Today I am tackle-ing some virtual home decluttering.
I forget to get a shot of the favorites this is what the recycle bin looked like after I tossed a lot of mess:

And this is my new and more efficient 'favorites folder': is where you might just call me crazy: I feel good!
This week's theme/prompt is: EXPRESS. (Remember, you don't have to use the exact word. You can use ANY form of it.)

One of the definitions of express is: to set forth the opinions, feelings, etc., of (oneself), as in speaking, writing, or painting. I humbly suggest that they add the word blogging to their definition. I express myself in three ways.

Since I first learned how to do so writing became my favorite method of expressing myself. I find that there are often things burning and churning inside of my mind and writingtyping them out will help me get to the bottom of the issue. If it does not then I have at least gotten the 'guck' out and I feel better. Growing up I would never have dared to verbally express myself to my father so writing became my safe outlet. In high school I began writing my feelings into poems and even had a few of them published in the school paper. In my 30's I learned how to use the computer and I love it. Then came blogging....and we all know where that took me:).

I am happy to report that I have also learned how to express myself verbally whether it be good, bad, or ugly in an appropriate and non-judgemental manner. This is a skill that I am proud of. It is very rare that a person can be offended or become defensive when I confront them. This is a valuble tool as it allows/forces the person to look at the issue at hand and not on my behavior which ultimately makes for better relationships. Words are amazing tools!

The final method of self-expression that I utilize is creating. If I don't create I am stifled. I have done many crafts over the years and lately I have been making quilt tops, jammie bottoms, and purses.

All-in-all, I feel/think/believe that expressing oneself is wonderful stuff!

Thanks for the emailed response to my 5th Meme Monday post with Friendship Circles. I'm happy you enjoyed the way I played with your meme this week ;--)

I'm intrigued with the manner in which you've decided to approach Meme Monday and will watch with interest. I also appreciate the links to a variety of daily activities which seems like a wonderful resource for those of us who haven't heard of them or don't know where to go for the weekly topic. Thanks for sharing and have a terrific Tuesday!
Hugs and blessings,

Blogging has certainly become a popular way for many of us to express ourselves.

I used to keep a diary when I was young as it was the safest way to express myself. Later it became a "journal."

Misty Dawn said...

Like you, writing was the way I expressed myself best. Writing has always been therapeutic and an outlet for me too.

This is probably why I am addicted blogging like I am :-)

I wish I could learn the art of verbal expression like you have.

Hi. It was hard to find the comments with so many different memes in one... whew! Anyway, I feel that self expression is very important to all of us, and it sounds like you do it well. Journal writing is a very powerful tool.

Have a happy week.
