September 1, 2010 - Chatty Thinking.
September 1, 2010. This is number 1592 of my blogs. And I started my blog 9/16/06 by suggestion of an old old friend. It's almost been four years. Never missed a day that I can remember - some days two blogs!
Maybe I write too much?
I started the blog writing about feelings, I wanted a 'place' of my own no one knew about - like a journal.
I was also going to leave it as a 'record' of sorts of my life, a journal for my grandson so he could 'know' his old grandma.
I then went into my positive and grateful stage which I am going to keep up - always.
I've blogged about myself. My trips. My family. My thoughts. Is that selfish?
You know my blog was so slow taking off compared to others. I think CorgiDogMama and Expressly Corgi started me off to where I am now. Rou Mouffetard was also very helpful to get me going too. So thanks gals and believe it or not - we're all still friends!
At times I think my blog is odd because it's about feelings - it's hard to be found - I don't know if you can look up a 'feeling and chatty' genre.
I've tried meme's and things like that. I've done birthdays for a year - thanks to Julie and Julia.
I thank each and every one you for following me. I've had lots of fun. I've met so many wonderful people. All ages, all sizes, all sexes, all religions. And I have learned so much I can't believe it. Made a lot of good friends too.
I'm thinking what I want to do from here. I know this - it has gotten to the point that if I read and write a comment to every blog I've joined I'd be on my computer all day long - I know - I've tried to do it.
While that would be wonderful, I do need to get some other things done in my day - like clean house - but who wants to do that - when I have this wonderful blog?
I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet. I think I'll stay true to myself and where I started. I know not every one is going to like me and/or my views. Not every one is going to leave a comment - I certainly understand that!
I even had some people unfriend me - ouch!
I'm going to do my best. Maybe it'll be interesting - maybe it'll be boring. Maybe I'll write every day and maybe I won't. I'll read as many blogs as I can and I'll have to skip some too. Forgive me in advance!
I'm going to blog without obligation - that used to be used a lot on the blogs - I used to see it, but didn't really understand back then.
And this is a two way street. If you can come to my blog, come, if you just want to read it and not comment - fine, or if you want to comment great. Chances are though - if I have your address - I will answer you. I like to reply to comments.
Of course I never run out of things to say - I'm a bit Chatty you know.
I have given it some thought about what I'm going to do in lieu of birthdays. Something that might surprise some of you - maybe not - my immediate life - my life that surrounds me - well, there are issues there going on - some good - but some not so good. There is negativity around me.
Therefore, I don't like to talk about negative things here too much (and there is always the exception) - because this is my positive 'spot' in my life. I can express my happy side here. It is a safe place for me and I want it to be safe for others. Now I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and I love Bible quotes - they cheer me up like nothing else. The Bible reassures me and makes me feel loved.
However, and I have shared my past on my blog, I needed in my particular case, outside help as well. Therapy.
I believe God made everything - including brains - therefore that would include therapy and positive thoughts.
The Bible, therapy, positive thoughts, and being grateful - these things have literally saved my life through the years and turned it around. I've written five grateful things every day for 15 years and some days it's mighty hard.
My life is not so Pollyanna I will admit - but I like my blog being more that way - not sure if one person understands this or me - but that's okay. This blog is for me and your blogs should be for you. Then we share and see what comes out of it.
So for the next year I'm going to put one of the quotes - maybe two - on my blog every day - to share them with my good friends. Hopefully it will keep us all 'more' happy and help us to tie a know and hang on!
Well I hope you all understand what I've said and that I haven't offended anyone. Maybe too, it explains me better and where I am coming from and why.
Know they won't all be Christian quotes persay - but they will be positive and uplifting and from what I believe and from where I stand - God wants us to do and be a lot of things for him - one is being positive, happy, and grateful and that is what my blog has always been about.
One thing I've never done is a give away. I am going to do one - just have to 'think' it through.
