What Would Make Me Mad
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Like most people, I have day-to-day experiences that get on my nerves, like minor Internet issues and receiving calls from people I do not know who mysteriously manage to get my cell number. I deal with these issues, and I do not let them ruin my day. There is one activity in my life, however, that has become very important to me, and if I were forced to give it up, it would make me mad, ruin my day, and break my heart. That activity is my blog.

One reason why I would be upset if I had to give up my blog is because I enjoy working at my own pace. I do not have an editor assigning me stories, demanding that I have them ready by 5:00 p.m., and threatening to fire me if the articles do not meet the standards of publication. Instead, I get to submit them at my leisure and revise them as many times as necessary to make them the best that they can be. Working at my own pace is not the only reason why I want to be allowed to continue my blog, however. Another reason why I want to continue my blog is because it gives me a sense of purpose.

Having a sense of purpose is important for everyone. It gives people a reason to get up in the morning, and it makes their day better. They know that people love them, need them, and value what they have to say. Some individuals get their sense of purpose by cooking for their family. They cook meals that their loved ones enjoy, like lasagna, steak, or chicken and dumplings, for example. Others, however, get their sense of purpose by earning money. The more they earn, the better they feel about themselves. I am part of the second group. I am happier since I started my blog, and I am excited about life. I am hoping that I will not have to stop doing what I love.

I might not be allowed to get a traditional job, such as a pet sitter, a tutor who helps students understand difficult concepts, or an editor who edits writing for publication, and I would be okay with that. However, I pray every day that I will not have to give up my blog, because giving up the wonderful feeling I get from writing and publishing articles and interacting with other writers is something that I would not be okay with. Hopefully, I will be allowed to be happy.
