Something magical happens when one’s thoughts get shaped as a blog text. Chaos disappears, and you understand what exactly you want to say.
Do you feel there is a lot of trash in your mind? Do you feel unsure about any particular situation? The personal blog is a perfect way to clean your thoughts. Don’t keep up to one topic, be interested in everything. Sometime later, you’ll understand that many topics really have elements in common, and troubles can be systemized into categories and solved much easier due to that.
This doesn’t seem to have any attitude to positive changes. Though, if to take a look from the other side, things differ: people often try running away from this state of mind, especially when it is needed to prove their own point of view or to accept new thoughts.
While feeling yourself vulnerable and thinking rationally at the same time, you get a lot more knowledge from any discussion. As a result, you get used to express your mind and not to be afraid of the majority to disagree with them.
