Here Goes Nothing

It’s Sunday Stream of Consciousness – thanks to Kenya G. Johnson at Here’s the thing… and All Things Fadra, the host of the Sunday SOC.

I’ve never done this before, so if after 5 mintues I’ve written nothing of importance, forgive me. BUT, if it’s pure genius, well then, you can thank me. *smile/wink* Okay, here goes…

It’s 4:55pm and I’m sitting in Wild Cherries Coffee Shop. I had to get out of the house because I couldn’t concentrate or focus. I’ve worked from home before while my husband watches the boys and I hole myself up in our home office / guest room. But I get distracted. I know the boys are just on the other side of that hollow wood door. I can hear their laughter and I want to go out and see what’s so funny. I hear their cries and I want to go out and help. I recently found out (well, I kind of always knew this about myself but never really had a logical explanation or way to explain it to anyone else) that I am super sensitive to energy. Not energy from the gas company or anything like that. Energy from people. I was at a networking event and there was a woman who did hand readings. She wasn’t that psychic, gypsy, I can tell you the future kind of woman (although I have nothing personal against those people). She took my hand, looked at it and immediately saw these rare lines just below where my fingers attach to the palm. I forget what she called it, the something something venus lines – I think. Anyway, when she was describing what that meant, I was completely in awe because now I could actually “show” someone my super powers – ha! It’s good and bad. I choose the good.

Okay, well that was exactly 5 minutes of non-edited, un-scripted writing. Hmmm, it’s hard to stop at 5 minutes! And now that I am re-reading the “instructions” I see that I completely ignored the prompt of what to write about. Oops. Sorry. Maybe next time I won’t be so in a hurry to get a blog post done – yeah, probably not.

Alright, I’m rambling… See ya later folks! 🙂

P.S. if you want to try the 5 min SOC – here are the rules. Have FUN!

It’s five minutes of your time and a brain dump. Want to try it? Here are the rules…

  1. I’ve done a similar exercise. It’s sometimes MORE than amazing what you come up with. Good idea for everyone. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I’ve done something similar and it’s amazing what you end up with sometimes. Good exercise. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my page today and commenting 🙂
    This looks like a fun idea, I may have to try it out. But…stopping at 5 minutes, well…

  4. LOL! Well great job! I want to know more about the super energy. I only go look at the prompt if I don’t have anything on my mind to brain dump about. So some of mine followed the prompt and some didn’t. It’s a good exercise.

    • Ok, well I don’t feel so bad now. HA!
      It was a great exercise, and I’ll have to do it more.

    • Oh, and “super energy” yes, sorry. I have to do some more research on what exactly that line in my hand was called and what it really means, but I have known (self-awareness) for a while that I am just extra sensitive to people’s energy. I think that’s probably why I could never let my kids cry it out, or even when they’re upset now I get upset, and when I get mad at them and yell, I feel soooo horrible after.
      But, it’s also a good thing, because I have learned to share my positive energy – and sometimes I can even feel it going through me into my kids. I feel it with my breath (learned that through yoga & hypnobirthing).
      Anyway, hope I’m not boring you to death… 🙂
