One year ago today…subliminally mind f*cked!

Last night as I was falling asleep I started thinking about this blog I started last year about philosophy and basically just a one stop shop for my thoughts to be deplored. After the first couple of posts I sort of gave up, not because I didn’t enjoy it, but more because I’m lazy and have a weakness for being unsettling. At least I’m honest.

With that being said, I decided today to take a look at the damn thing, and wouldn’t ya know it, the very last post I did was exactly one year ago from today. June 6th, 2013, marked the post of “A Poem About the Future – by a 22nd century philosopher”. I remember writing this thing and it brought me back to my mindset last year.

I was still somewhat getting used to being single again, although it had been almost a year since the break-up. The hardest part about life at that time was just searching for who I was, who I wanted to be, and who I wanted to be around.

Was my mind subliminally telling me it was time to return? Does the mind work in that way? The way in which it reflects back to a certain time that serves has a starting point from an exact moment? I don’t know, but I found it very interesting…

Tell me how writing helps you find who you are

  1. Our minds, I think, like to look for these patterns (like your exact year to the day blogging gap) when really it’s a coincidence. Still, it’s nice and poetic in your case nonetheless! I’ve just started a blog that I intend to simply vent and reflect on my life. Some posts will be awful, some awesome and some completely average – just like the days of our lives.

      The concept of coincidence is a post in and of itself, can it really exist in all situations such as this one? I’d like to keep trying to write as much as possible. I think sometimes I write for the wrong reasons, and only when I feel I need to. I am always looking for new and exciting outlets. Good to know that some of my posts will be awful and it will be okay =)

      I’ll check yours out, thanks for dropping in.
