There’s a line in the movie Hall Pass, where Owen Wilson’s character talks about how he exercises at home—but he’s thinking of “taking his workouts public” and joining a gym.
His statement made me realize that I was in a similar situation—doing my mental exercises at home—working things out in my head. It was time to take it public and start a blog. If jogging is good for the body—then blogging will be good for the mind.
A blog gets you out of your head and onto the cyber stage. It’s an ongoing open mic night—where you can present your writing, poetry, photography, music, videos, comedy, dancing, storytelling or anything else you’d like to share. It’s an opportunity to express yourself to the online world—show and tell on a global scale.
My blog could be a huge success or a non-event. But that doesn’t matter—it’s my mental health club—putting my thoughts in writing are my workouts—they may not be as good as I’d like yet—but that’s the point of exercising.
What do you think? Are you ready to take it public?
“To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.” – Aristotle
tap-tap-tap…Is this mic working?
