Ok I am making this blog to use as my brain dump station. I have my other blog for my “family necessitated postings” of soccer games and cute kid pics. This blog with be more of my thoughts. I have to give credit to my friend Bryan for this as he uses his blog to express his thoughts and I find this idea appealing but wanted to keep it separate. My first post is on the subject of obsession. Now I will not mention names to protect the “innocent” here but I have noticed lately that us as humans are obsessed with being obsessed. This means that we find something that occupies most of our energy. This could be movies, members of the opposite sex or sex, religion, politics, work, you name it there are a ton of things that obsess us. What I have realized is that the object of that obsession is not important really, it’s the category of obsession. For example, someone could be so obsessed about a certain musical band and it takes up every thought and purchase for 2 weeks and then something happens and it’s on to the next item of obsession. What is the constant in this equation? That’s right boys and girls it’s the obsession it’s self. This leads me to think about the power of obsessions and how it affects our lives and priorities, since we know we must have an obsession is our obsession focused on the things where we need them?
