During this 2010 holiday season, I am finally finding some time to put back online, some blog posts that were written several years ago.
I started blogging in 2006 from BrendaJohima.com and also from CreativeNudge.com but then in a fit of brilliance (I thought at the time), decided to delete both websites and blogs completely, in order to scale back my online involvement and move to a life of minimalism (I thought). I’m going to write more about this in a future post, about moving an old version WordPress blog to a new web hosting company with a new version of WordPress and what can happen (and did).
However, for now, here’s the post, written in 2008, a poem, of sorts. Enjoy.
Do you ever need permission to just let yourself off the hook for something, for anything?
Well, I give you permission right now, today, to let yourself off the hook.
Do you need to let yourself off the hook? Well then, do it, right now.
Let Yourself Off The Hook
Act and be unpredictable and unreliable … it’s pretty cool to not be too perfect sometimes … Maybe you will enjoy being off the hook?
At least let yourself off the hook for awhile … maybe you will stay unhooked?
Get off the hook and stay there.
I hereby give you permission to no longer be hooked.
Hooks are in songs.
Hooks are for hanging pictures and Captain Hook.
Hooks are for hanging curtains and shower curtains.
You don’t want to be hooked on drugs or hooked on chocolate.
You could take up rug hooking instead and let yourself off the hook.
You can hook up your TV and hook up your phone or you can even play hooky.
But please, let yourself off the hook.
