seeking inspiration

I was sitting at home today, thinking of something to blog about. When I was younger, I had this passion for writing. After high school it went away for some reason. To this day, I still don't know why. Maybe I got distracted with other things in life, who knows. Now that I have this blog, I feel like my mind is running a million thoughts and ideas a minute and I can't seem to keep up. I try to write my blog ideas in my nifty little notebook, but can I really write a million ideas in there?

So when I finally take the time to sit down and blog, my mind goes blank. With a million ideas in my head, how do I choose just one? I pick one, but then I decide against it because it doesn't go with how I'm feeling today.  I felt like I was writing a term paper and I just stared at my computer screen for what seemed like forever. Desperate to find some inspiration on something to write about, I decided to turn on the TV. 

Ahh, Sex and the City. One of my all-time favorite shows. 

Ironically, the episode is about Carrie Bradshaw and her writer's block for her column. Inspring? Yes. Interesting? Yes. Yet, I quickly forgot about my writing problem and continued to watch a few more episodes... :)

One of my favorite quotes from the show:
“Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous.”
