A Week of Wonder--No TV!

That's right, I'm going the week sans my brain candy. Sans my boredom buster. Sans my emotion number (hmm, I mean the thing that numbs my emotions--how else would one spell that?).

What am I thinking?

The current self help book I'm studying, Life is Hard, Food is Easy, challenged me to make a list of my needs. I don't know what I need. I think that's one of my problems. I don't seem to know myself anymore. What do I need? What do I love? What makes me happy, sad, angry? I'm kind of afraid to examine what I need because then I'll have to face not having it...isn't that odd?

I'm preparing to speak to some teen age girls at a church camp retreat. The topic is journals--specifically journaling our spiritual experiences. I've been an avid journaler since high school so I've been poring over the hopes, dreams and frustrations I've written about through the years. Right now I don't know what hopes, dreams and frustrations I have.

Not good.

No television will force me to talk to myself. Beware-I may be blogging quite a bit during the week!

Wish me luck or, better yet, join me!


  1. Good luck Bonnie! It sounds like a wonderful journey of discovery you are on, I hope you find the answers you are looking for. Even if you don't know exactly what it is you are hoping to find yet :)

  2. Now i think youre a brave woman .. no TV - thats my down time at night. Now journals - look at the vis art journal and I recall Carrie or Shannon showing a journal they'd made at a Convention in Australia a year or so ago. I'd say a perfect time for some creating or reading even :)
