Day 25: Do More of What Makes You Happy

I do need some restraint.

I find myself indulging in a lot of what makes me happy and it’s causing problems where I think I am addicted. I spend too much time online. I have sex a lot (but that, I don’t apologize for. I am a slut and proud of it. I have sex with consent and enjoy it). However if I keep doing more of what makes me happy, then I won’t write. Writing makes me happy, but lately it stresses me out.

I find that I enjoy and find solace in things that don’t have me question my abilities. I enjoy sleep. I indulge in food. I end up not working.

But in the scope of the creativity project, then if I write more of what I enjoy, then I think that can get me back into writing and having fun. Thing is, I don’t know what writing makes me happy.

I am sometimes pained in writing blog entries and about myself. I enjoy writing in persona, but I hate how in poetry the “I” is conflated with the poet. I hate the confessional stance of poetry. I don’t find as much freedom in fiction as I do in the line. I guess I just have to keep writing and see where it takes me.

What joys do you have that you need to pursue?

  1. I’m currently searching for anything that will bring me joy…I’m so envious of those with passions. I want to be around people all the time, it’s the only time I’m happy. But I can’t be, so I need to find something so I can be happy when I’m alone 😦
    I watch tv when I’m alone, because it makes me feel not alone, but then I am envious that the people on those shows are never alone…
