A Place to Unload

I really, really appreciate all the support you guys gave me on my post about worry.

After thinking about the fact that I worry so much and thinking about how much my blog has helped me in other areas of my life, I made a decision.

I decided to start another blog - one dedicated to my worries. I am going to post whatever is weighing on my mind each day. Hopefully once I unload the worry in a post, I can leave it there. Or I will see just how stupid it really is.

Sometimes my worries get a little extreme - going down a very long road of what-ifs. Laugh if you must but please don't judge:)

haha, I just suggested this to you in another comment. See don't worry, great minds think alike.

Thanks so much for your kind words on my post.

Thinking of you :)

Great idea, Woody... Getting it OUT may help you to leave it there and quit worrying about it....

Keep us posted.

Great idea!

Sometime writing (or in this case typing) something down just helps to clear things up! I know once I put my thoughts about moving down, it really felt like "things" started moving and falling into place.

I love you for keeping it so real!
This should be very therapeutic for you. For me, I just shout it out, which works because I live alone. I do that in the car a lot too. :))

I was going to ask you on Facebook but I might as well as you here.
You doing any portion at all of the Elk River 100 on Sept 12th?
It starts at Motlow. I'd love to have some company on that ride if I decide to do it. :)

Honestly, I'm a *worry wart* too. I can't believe how much blogging has helped me in the areas I needed help. I'm telling ya... it's better than going to a therapist any day!

I'm not overly religious either, mainly because I've seen too much *go on* at my former church. I feel closer to God on the golf course & will continue to worship Him & use His name in vain, on said golf course. He knows it's not personal...

Such a great idea! I'm heading over now!

Hi Woody, Please send me your email. Every once in awhile, I would like to communicate with you via email...

NO---we weren't in Tullahoma. There are alot of silver Prius's --and they all look alike. Ours has a UT Vols sticker on the back window.

Hugs,

I saw in your profile that you had a new blog. What a wonderful idea!! Can't wait to hear if it helps and I should start my own

Boy...you had me worried with that title. I thought it was going to be a bathroom event... whew!

alntv said...

I did a similiar thing, except mine is a little more bitching than worrying. Hopefully this will let you get those concerns out. My other site helps me a lot also...I think you will find it to be therapeutic!

The blog can be a great cathartic outlet! Good luck with the new one too.

That sounds like a great idea! You know various cultures ways like that to deal with worries, either writing them down and burning or burying them, or whispering them to special 'worry people' dolls.

I'll be interested to know how that goes!

Look at you go! Another blog. You are a super star. I can barely handle my one blog! : ).

One of my favorite bible verses: Cast all of your cares on Him for He careth for you" helps me worry less.

I am a worry-er too : )

I like this. I hope it does what you need it to do. I've thought about doing the same kind of thing. But I'd have to keep mine totally private because some of my worries are well, too private.
