We were talking about quitting…

In an earlier post, I wrote about quitting. This could easily have been the day when I … if not quit, so at least jumped a day.

I’m not doing that. Writing in spite of myself.

I shot this photo yesterday at the spur of the moment. You only see the shadow image of the tree … not the real thing.

Isn’t that the way it is  with us people, quite often. We only allow so much of ourselves to show … we choose what to show, and that way very few people get to see the real you.

We play our parts in life … in different situations we play a different part. Sometimes it feels like I haven’t even got the manuscript, and I’m supposed to play the character role in this big play, called My Life.

  1. Oh, yes! And, I find it especially true on the internet. I often joke with one of my best friends, who also blogs and who is active on the same forums I am, that these folks don't really know me at all. I'm not nearly as nice as I know I sometimes come off being, and can be quite the grumpy, and sometimes downright nasty, old lady.

    I like this challenge of yours, so keep at it.

    1. Ha ha! yeah, I don't show those sides either LOL.. But I know many other people seem to feel that they can completely let themselves go on the web … like they're protected behind the screen or something. I've seen how people can be outright evil to one another on message boards and forums … to complete strangers!

    1. Thank you, Rick for stopping by and also taking time out to comment. Yes, this morning , when I wrote this, it felt that way … that we only see one side … a shadow of people's real persona.

  2. Hey, I just wanted to send a message of encouragement to you to keep at it. These self-imposed challenges are tough, and there will be days when you just don't feel like doing it. But keep at it. You'll be happy you did.


    1. Thanks, Grant … This one is so much easier to keep up with, compared to the 365-photo thing. I will definitely feel good when I've finished it. Could be fun to look back upon too 🙂

  3. Love this blog but so sorry you are having a "feeling like quitting" day. It's sometimes hard to be up and happy all the time but I really don't think humans can be all the time. Just the nature of the beast.

    The photo is awesome. I love shadow photos.

    I think one knows how much they can show to another if they have known a person for awhile but at first no, and I think we all feel like someone changes the script every now and then.

    1. Suz,
      I didn't really want to quit … I just felt awful when I woke up this morning. This is a challenge I'm pretty sure I can go through with.

      Showing ones true self takes a lot of trust and courage. One gets so vulnerable…
