Don’t worry, I am not going anywhere but some folks choose to walk away from blogging or other things they love for various reasons. Sometimes it’s the need to do something new or to have a fresh start. Trust me I understand that. But I encourage people to think hard about doing that.
Making connections with people from all over the world is one of the reasons I stay on WordPress.com and the fact they do the behind the scenes stuff.
Blogging is an exchange of ideas and the telling of one’s story in real time and I really like that part of the whole thing. Deleting your blog takes courage and it’s sad when someone does it. So as I always say keep on blogging about everything and anything that you see in life and that inspires you. Also keep it fun and enjoy the process.
Happy Left-Handers Day to my fellow southpaws out there. Just a reminder we are the only ones in our right minds. Lefties like me are special people!
There is an old saying blossom where you are planted and for many that advice has served them well. It has served me well in some cases. People like plants need air, soil, water and sunlight in a matter of speaking in order to grow. Sometimes people need transplanting to a bigger pot in order grow more but often staying put can benefit you and the community you live in. Many people have found family, friends and connection being where they are and if one can find that it’s a true blessing.
Blossom was also a TV show starring Mayim Bialik from 1991 to 1995.
From what Google and Twitter say it’s Friendship Day and that’s cool. My view on this particular day which was founded in part by Joyce Hall of Hallmark Greeting Cards Company. The criticism is that it’s to sell and exchange greeting cards and other tokens of affection. You know what that would be fine with me. We need more expressions of love, affection and friendship these days.
We live in a mean world that needs softening up. Rediscovering tenderness and friendship is important to give us something to keep us going.
Personally I don’t have a best friend but many people I call friends. Those are people who you share a common view on life, you are there for one another when things get tough and people you can confide in. It’s important they are interested in you as a human being. I am blessed with a good family but there are extended family who I have chosen to be in my life. The one thing is that you hope as you are a good friend to others that they return the favor. Relationships need to be a two-way street to be successful and worth having.
Let’s just blog for freaking fun.
There aren’t many people who follow my blog I have met in person. However I consider you friends for a reason in that you are interested in me as a person and as a fellow blogger. Our bond is in living and blogging. It doesn’t matter if we ever meet in person although it would be cool.
I find you all to be quality people who like me have something to say and things in our worlds to share. That is what makes this whole thing special. These blogs I follow don’t write themselves because there is a human being creating and curating and writing important works that are snapshots of time and space and place in their own lives. The same can be said for many who I follow on Twitter and Instagram.
So good people thank you for your support as of late. It is very much appreciated. As I always say, be the star of your own blog and keep on blogging.
Grace and peace and love!
