Burn Out

This walking through the study doesn't seem to be working. I'm finding it more labourious than previous blogs. Last night I sat down at the keyboard and felt empty and cold. Tonight I called a good friend for coffee. Three times he asked me if there was something I wanted to talk about and three times I avoided the topic. Then as we were leaving I asked his opinion of this page. In true Hebrew mindset fashion he answered with a question. (The Greek mindset has answer for everything, the Hebrew mindset is inquisitive and slow to conclusions). He asked if I was enjoying the style and manner in which this page is being filled. He then mentioned it was very different from my previous blogs where I wrote more personal pieces. He went on that this was more of a teaching format and then asked what I enjoy more. I was honest and almost ashamed to answer I preferred the former.

After some warm pieces of advice I've come to the conclusion that I need to go back to writing from the heart I hope the flame will be rekindled. I'm sure Tylenol PM will be much happier as readers won't be using this site anymore to lull themselves to sleep.

Writing from the is always best. Just do what you feel is right for you and everything will fall into place.

That's cool! Whatever you choose to write about and enjoy writing is great with me. And if you enjoy it, that's when others will enjoy it also.

D'you know, the thing that I love most about reading this blog (and the previous ones)is your bravery Pilgrim. You try stuff and you are not afraid to examine your heart in front of us. It is inspiring, less what you write (though that is good) but why and how you write.
Love you brother :)

I have always liked what you had to say. You have to write what you feel is best for you. You are smart and you know how to express yourself, so go with it.If you feel empty and cold then write what makes you feel warm. God Bless:)

Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement. Not all of us have that kind of faith.
