"Perhaps a man really dies when his brain stops, when he loses the power to take in a new idea. There are a lot of people like that. Dead minds, stopped inside. Just keep moving backwards and forwards on the same little track, growing fainter all the time, like ghosts." Pg 188-George Orwell Coming up For Air
One year ago I started this blog because my job was driving me crazy. I was dreaming about it almost every night. I was going home swearing under my breath, and felt like I would explode. I was so full of toxic mental waste that I was having problems functioning.
Things haven't really changed much at my job, but I have. I understand my world and who I am better. I've found a voice and a message that I did not know was in me. I'm not always happy, but I have found a measure of peace through the blog.
At first it seemed like all I was doing was whining about my job, but it became more than that. After you put into words what bothers you, and you know that people have seen it and understand it, you have an incredible sense of relief. Its like what has been bothering you has lost its power.
For that understanding and help, I want to thank all of the kind people that have read my blog. I consider you my friends and confidants. There are too many of you to mention, but some of you have went out of your way to promote my blog and I appreciate that help more than you will know.
As always, thanks for reading!
