Daily Prompt: On edge, what do you do? Usually, I jump off!

Daily Prompt: On edge, what do you do? Usually, I jump off!

  I wish even keel were part of my vocabulary. I am an extremist that was raised by an extremist. I go to extremes to try to keep my children from becoming extremist too. I will probably fail at that. Anyhow, when I need to get my extremism in check I usually write. I feel a release when I type out something that is bothering me. I would recommend writing/journaling to everyone. Only recently have I started actually blogging my thoughts. I really find blogging fun and it brings an even greater gratification then my journal ever could.

I hate to admit it but it is true. I can’t handle the pressure of being on the edge so I will usually just announce to everyone what is bothering me and let the pieces fall where they may. I mean teetering on the edge of any subject, act or feeling is not for me. The more stress I have the more I write or talk about it to help elevate what ever is bothering me. 

Sometimes, when I am really wound up I will type so hard and fast my daughter says my computer sounds like rain falling on our ceiling. Hey, its better than nutting out verbally or acting on my whims.

This post is written in response to today’s daily prompt:



We all have things as need to do to keep an even keel — blogging, exercising, reading, cooking. What’s yours?
