Do what feels good

I know that I spoke about this before, but I want to share a recent experience, to explain why I think this is so true. Last Sunday, a week ago, I went to a fabulous blogging seminar. I highly recommend it, and I came away with so much information that I really am looking forward to implementing most of what I learned. One of the things that we focused on was being very specific about our subject matter.


But here’s the rub. I am a believer in world peace. I know that in my heart of hearts it can be achieved, one person at a time. I want world peace for pity sakes. I would say my subject matter is pretty darned broad.

EarthHumorSo we started narrowing down my focus. I love food and I’m a pacifist. So we looked up for my new blog name. Why cave woman? I love the Paleo lifestyle. Later a friend of mine (@EarthHumor) came up with That too was available, and it’s now mine. I am a pacifist, and I love food.

OK, that being said, I was idle all week long. I didn’t write about a single thing, and the only constructive thing I did was change my blogging format on my page so that it is a little more friendly. Why was I stagnated? Because I wasn’t feeling good about my “new direction.”

I said to myself, “Self, you haven’t had one creative thought since your narrowed your focus. Why is that?”
I answered myself, “Because, it’s not feeling good.”
“What do you want to write about?”
“What I was writing about before. I know that I’m not the only one who believes what I believe. I think it’s important to be one of the many spokespersons for the subject. I think Love and Forgiveness are important. This is my passion.”
“OK then, you don’t have to do what someone else tells you do to. You have never been a conformist before, why start now?”
“You are right! Why start now?”

Do you know how freeing that was? I’m back, writing about my true passion. I don’t care that it is broad. It is what it is. I’ll throw in some food stuff occasionally. Like, this is what I am going to make for dinner tonight, and I am looking forward to it.

I feel good, and thanks for believing in me.
