chicken fried Brain. 5 comments


Here’s the honest-to-goodness truth: My blogging brain is fried. I’ve been trying to fight it and come up with topics to write about. I’ve got a pretty sizable list, and yet I sit down to write them and…blah. Rather than forcing them (and I could almost swear that when you read them you would somehow know that I forced them), I’ll just admit that I have a chicken friend blogging brain. I credit part of this to the book madness (can you believe the release is less than a month away?!). The other part I credit to…the simple fact that sometimes we all just get fried.

So what shall I write about? Lately I feel like I write blogs that are spiritual (which I love), but aren’t really as personal. On the off chance I write about something personal, it is about the book. I also love writing about the Faith in general, especially things that I learn about the Catholic faith that just boggles my mind and totally inspire me (and then I wonder if I’m connected with anyone out there in blog-o-land). Today, in a way, I’ll turn the blogging over to you. Here’s my plan: I have a lot of questions floating around in my brain. Some have answers, some I go back and forth on. But today I’m leaving them to you – answer as many as you choose!

Do you believe in “The One” – the idea that there is only one person for each of us? If so, how do you know?

How do you overcome writers block?

For those of you with blogs, do you ever feel like you are writing and forcing your posts, even though you feel called to write them? Do you ever feel like you are totally disconnected from your audience?

Where is your dream vacation?

Is there a topic you want to see me blog about (I’ll take any and all suggestions at this point, lest there be more scratching brains…)?

How do you grow spiritually, especially if/when you feel exhausted by life?

What is your favorite liturgical season?

Do you think love a choice, a feeling, or some combination of both? Why?

How do you get through those times when you feel like God is just…not around (even if you mentally know that He is)?

Who is your favorite band/artist at the moment?

What are your favorite things to blog about (or read about)?

Do blogs about the faith (i.e. the Mass, or a certain Bible passage, or a Church teaching [not necessarily the more talked about ones], or prayer) bore you or excite you?

Serious and not to serious questions. Sorry for the brain fry – pray for me and hopefully I’ll be back soon with some deeper stuff!

And now for your entertainment…more brains!

<—— That is my brain at the moment. Dancing around in a pan? Yup.

    I don’t know if I believe in “the one”….mostly because I believe love is a choice so I think there are probably several people that can come into your life that at a given point could be “the one” if you pursue it and choose it…but obviously I believe God is ultimate designer, so I guess He probably knows who “the one” is. Hmmmm now I don’t know as I’m writing. Dangit.

    I HAVE NO IDEA how to overcome writers block, I’m currently experiencing it…but then again I am a rookie to the blogging world…I just started.

    Dream Vacation? I think New Zealand…I hear you can go to the beach and go skiing in the same day.

    I always love a good pro-life post.. 😉

    Growing spiritually when I don’t feel like it…I usually read me some Matthew Kelly and that always gets me going again.

    Favorite Liturgical season: Lent (it’s the only time I’m very intentional about my spiritual growth, and therefore it’s the hardest but the most rewarding)

    I mentioned earlier that I think love is a choice. I think there are emotions attached, but I think they usually follow the choice. I don’t imagine Jesus felt “butterflies of love” in his stomach as he was being crucified…he chose to do that for us, but I think every time we do something for him he feels loved as a result of him choosing to love us first. I don’t know if that made sense..

    Anyways…happy blogging..if you figure out the writers block thing..let me know how you did it!

      Right?! I totally believe God knows what He is doing, but at the same time I think that we can choose to love people and work on a relationship with them. That is totally a matter of choice on the part of each person in the relationship. It is definitely interesting to think about!

      Me either. Rookie or not, it happens to everyone! Usually when it happens to me it is *after* I’ve written a bazillion blogs so I can just take off a week from writing and no one is the wiser 😉 Not this time though! I think I usually just take my list of ideas to prayer (I keep a note on my phone and add ideas to it whenever the idea strikes) and go from there.

      New Zealand sounds amazing and SO beautiful!

      I’ve never been able to get into Matthew Kelly much. Which book is your favorite?

      YES! Lent is the bomb, and for all the reasons you said!

      Sooo true about Jesus not feeling the butterflies of love as He suffered for love – perhaps you could write a blog about that and how love is a choice? 😉 Sounds like something I’d definitely love to read!

      Happy blogging to you too!

    Question though, do you want us to write our answers on the comments of this blog entry or do you wish us to actually write an entry in our blog (especially if we have a blog)? Then afterwards link it up here on the comment section? I thought I should ask. As for brain fry, I go through those often. I think really it is because I have so much on my mind and I am worried if I am able to convey them in the best way on my blog.
