the forest through the trees


huh....as i sit here staring at that title that just came out so easily...i realize that now, i'm paralyzed by it. should i change the title? all i wanted to do was write a blog post for the day...and the first thing that came out was "sometimes you can't see the forest through the trees". but now...i'm stuck on what to say. there are so many different angles to that statement. how would i articulate it? i want to be insightful...funny....reflective....intelligent. but now...i can't even find a place to start. i'm going to change the title....but that's giving up....right? DANG IT! i can do this...i know i can. all i want to do is write a blog post! that's it! it's overwhelming...i've lost my purpose....my passion is waning. i might as well just lie down on the pine needle covered ground, staring up at the sky and go to sleep. it's over...

You look at one "tree" at a time. A forest of "trees" at one time can be overwhelming. You can miss the little special things about or on each "tree" and the forest just looks so big and scary.

One tree at a time.

And we have to remember we can't live without trees.

Does this mean you're done with your daily blogs??? Has it become too much? Overwhelming?

sometimes to see the forest again all you have to do is close your eyes for a bit and reopen them again. then you can reintroduce yourself to the beauty and magic of each and every tree...

Ok, J-man, I can't resist. After all the crap yo gave me when I was blogging, I blogged regularly for 3 yrs before I had a moment like that so there! :-P
Seriously though, man, you can't put that kinda pressure on yourself! Hang in there, chill, deep breathes, taking a day off is OK!
