In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Singin’ in the Rain.”
As I sit here listening to the rain, I think about going out for a little while. I have a rough day with people refusing to pay me my money and other people pretending that they have my back. I have been blogging most of the day too! I want to enjoy one of mother nature’s pure experience.
I sit and think about Noah’s story. It rained over a month and I am sure it was damp and humid. Everyone stuck together for such a long time and getting to know each other well. I am sure the smells were bad too. How can someone live with that much rain and not feel sad because they can go walking around? Being able to walk or sing in the rain would be nice.
I have seen the movie before. I know on the cartoon “Robots” they did a similar song. I know plenty of people use the rain to make them happy and feel like singing. I don’t like water myself, but I think I should get out the house anyway. The rain seems better in my apartment because I am at the top of the building and I can hear it pretty good.
I plan to take a trip to see my family for the holidays I decided to take the bus and I arrived at this station excited. I decided while waiting for the bus to blog about what was happening with my business. I talked about how much I had been selling and how the homeless benefits from this. I mentioned what my next plan was and asked for comments on it from my followers. I post it then sit back to watch everyone around me.
This place is full of people going places, some for business and some for pleasure. I suddenly realize that I could go anywhere. I decided to write a list of places I would like to go for pleasure. Once the list was written, I realize that there was more to write about. I could tell a story on my blog about when I traveled on my honeymoon. This place was noisy but seem to help with my writing.
When it was time to get on the bus I looked back and thought to myself that I should try to write more often when I have down time. I could be building a story for a book or posting on a blog. Most importantly, writing can free your mind in any place you are located at. This station can be an inspiration to lots of people.
I decided, some time back, to create an image that only my friends and family would understand. My love of chocolate was well known, but I remember someone thinking I was the color of milk chocolate. My first attempt was creating my first email with the name Chacalit. I used that for many years.
I later decided I want to start my own business with the name. I was going to sell something online through the site to make myself known. I even went to the point of paying for the business license and business to say I owned my business, I actually still own the domain name. Making logos for the business was very difficult. I tried several of them, but the pictures were not professional. I now have a generic one.
What I did was find this picture and added the name to it. I call it my logo but whatever. I set up a website, but it was too expensive to run the website with hosting. I use a free website provider now that has the name in it: http://chacalit.webs.com/. I will work on the real domain soon enough.
Now I would like to have the site known for helping the homeless in the city I live in and for promoting the products I make from home. I was homeless for quite awhile and it had made a huge difference in my life. I am not sure if the business image is representing me or what the company is about but I hope this blog helps people understand more. I want my audience to understand me and what the company is about.
Some people have multiple issues that they should consider dangerous to people around them. Most people seek help for some help to put them on a more balanced scale. I have quite a few issues myself. I see a Psychiatrist, counselor, and use other therapeutic sources to help. All that is needed from the people is to first recognize them issues and then start a plan of action.
I know this one guy that has six to eight issues. I believe most of them started from a rough childhood. Unfortunately, it does change that he has them. He loves to hold grudges. He is holding a grudge against his mother from 35 years ago about how she made a promise to give him something for straight A grades. He has never forgiven her. Now it causes a problem every time anyone says they are going to do something and it does happen, even if it doesn’t have anything to do with him or his life. Actually, that can be the cause for most of his other issues like anger and alcoholism. If he would work on one at a time he may be able to feel better about his life.
Today, in the age of technology, we can get help from blogs, vlogs, skype, podcasts, webinars, chat, and much more resources. There isn’t any reason to allow yourself to be depressed or using substance abuse as a device in your life. I think we should all consider the happiness we are missing and work on increasing it.
I write because it frees up my mind. I have been writing for quite some time but didn’t really want anyone to read it. I do spend lots of time talking on the phone, but writing is a better way to let you thoughts flow. I spend some lonely nights talking about the things that happen to me but when I write about it I get more words out. I have written on blogs about my experience as a homeless person, but it was the same as now. I realize now I could have made my blog more focused.
I have several blogs. I have a blog about an addiction. I used to have a blog about homelessness but I am no long homeless so I do know how to remedy that yet. I have a blog about my crazy adventures and a separate one for other people’s crazy things. I have this one that I had not decided what to do with it, but now I can use it for my classes. I probably should condense these blogs, but some are on separate sites.
My new tool I use to help me with my writing is this thing I use on my browser that is called Grammarly and it helps me with grammar. There is an email they send out (like newsletter) that gives me a breakdown of how many words I wrote, errors, and vocabulary. It gets me excited to write more the next week.
I want to become a real writer but and an English teacher told me if I don’t write I can’t become a writer, so I started blogging. I like the blogging because it seems so informal. I would love to write my own book someday. Experiencing issues can be troublesome but writing about it can be therapeutic. I found that if I share it with the world it can be inspiring. Now I just get my voice heard and people are welcome to visit.
My name is Myra and I go by Chacalit as well for several years. I have been using the chacalit user name because I love chocolate, but of course, it is also my skin color (milk chocolate). I have two grown daughters that are into so many things and I really want to start interacting with them as much as possible. I went to school for awhile and took an English course that has motivated me to enjoy writing.
I experience all types of things in my life, some things are related to me personally, but other things are just my luck so I want to share them. I have mental and emotional issues that I deal with, but it is quite easy to write about it for others to understand and identify with. I also was homeless for several years and there is plenty to discuss with those issues. I want to share all these issues, some on specific blogs and group some together.
I am also trying to bring in a residual income from my home on a computer. Blogging is important to that journey. Some of the things I do can be related or it can also be just personal, but I can earn income from blogs as well as sharing information on other income resources too. I have so many ideas that I need to learn how to separate it all.
I am currently enrolled in a blogging class and writing class to help me improve my writing. I really want to become a better blogger to get followers. I am on all types of social media, but I am not sure how to do that now I can learn all of this all at one time. Blogging to me is a way to express yourself, share information with people without being a journalist, and maybe earning a little money on the way.
