In The Comments

Do you ever wonder about people who write out long essays in posts about the most innocent things? Think about how much time these folks spend coming up with responses that seem to be disrespectful and angry.

It seems Facebook, Instagram and Twitter where this happens most. One could do a demographic analysis and come up with conclusions that can affirm a profile of people who seem to do this sort of thing the most.

It’s amazing what they say and makes you wonder if it’s from a place of fear or facts. Don’t dive into the comments, if you do it might leave one sad and bewildered.

The Roaring 20’s, Fashionable Once Again

Next year is the beginning of a new decade and this dress in a local shop reminds me of 100 years ago when the roaring 20’s were just getting started. It’s amazing that time reminds us in such a fashionable way.

Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix

Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix have some surreal social commentary that is very reminiscent of what is going on right now. Institutional corruption, fake news and manipulation of facts and denial of truth. It’s my favorite of the series.

Fellow Bloggers You Are My Friends

i-love-blog

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!

The Cost Of Saying “No” Too Many Times

You can only say “no” too many times before people stop asking you to be a part of something. I understand too well that saying “yes” too many times can deplete your mind, body and soul. Saying “no” frequently means giving up possible opportunities that can change your life and the lives of others.

The solution could be prioritizing ones life so that there can be some balance but even then its easy to decline instead of accept. Professionally you have to say yes every now and then to indicate you still have interest in growth and advancement in your chosen field. Personally it means giving value to relationships of family and friends that you want to be a part of their lives.  Just saying “no” just to say “no” out of habit can be a problem for you down the road.

It takes courage either way to say yes and to say no. You just have to figure out what means more to you.
