Merry Christmas from a Norwegian psychologist

Posted on

It’s so good to finally want to write again. Sometimes the thirst is there, at other times Its not. I like writing when it’s dark and silent, Since my thoughts can roam without distractions. I especially love writing when I have a lot of thoughts buzzing around, as it helps me to organize the jumble of nerve connections. It aligns the mess in more manageable units, so I can go to bed with a calmer mind. Christmas and other holidays have a tendency to trigger thoughts. It’s all the impressions that need to be processed and integrated in my mind. It can be small things, like the gifts I got and how that made me feel, or more essential questions, like my future or how the past has effected me. Instead of turning in my bed, I choose to turn it all around in my head. I let the thoughts free through letters and mix it all together, making a new map of the world. Life is essential about this; Understanding the world and giving it meaning. Without meaning we feel empty and lost. We need to find meaning in both good and bad experiences. If we don’t we feel depressed or anxious. We feel like something’s missing. It doesn’t matter who you are and which circumstances surrounds you. No matter how you have suffered, you can still find happiness if you manage to find the meaning in the meaningless.

I wish you all a merry Christmas. Maybe my readers also find wisdom in silent nights where thoughts can roam without interruptions?

    I with you on that, Mirrorgirl. But usually I have a news station on since most of my writing is geared towards politics, current events and pop culture. My first act in the morning is to skim through my newsfeeds to see if there has been a new development for an article i’m geting ready to send off to the presses. I find though, that writing where it’s peaceful brings out a deeper, inner voice that I wouldn’t be able to hear if I’m being distracted. You know, the one that can say what everyone else is thinking, but they don’t want to say? That’s okay…I’ll say it, lol.

    Peace and quiet – a rare commodity, no?
