Just The Way You Are

I've had a lot whirling around my mind lately.
I'm going to pitch it out to the universe today.
I hope it can help someone.
Just one would be good.

To My Fellow Bloggers:

I love your blog.
I love visiting you whenever you feel like posting.
I love reading whatever you feel like writing.
I love seeing whatever you've created
or captured on film.

I love it when you share your joy
or proudest moments.
I am then able to celebrate with you.

I love it when you share your struggles
or heartaches.
It gives me the opportunity to support you.

I love to see all sides of you.
It gives me the chance to know you.
You are multi dimensional.
I love that about you.

I'm not perfect.
I don't expect you to be either.
We are human.
We laugh, we cry.
We're happy.  We get crabby.
We are real.

So dear blogger,
I'm just trying to let you know,
be who you are.
I love you for it.

I guess there are as many different styles and levels of sharing as their are blogs. Some bloggers are comfortable spilling their guts about everything in their personal life, some not at all, and then there's everything in between. That's what makes the world go around, as they say... Great food for thought, Jill. :)

Madi and Mom said...

Well said Ms. Jill; however, Mom says I still must refrain from being so bossy on my bloggie. I replied
Mom there will be demerits.
Hugs Madi and we love each and every one of your thoughts each day.

My dearest friend,

You turn things 180, and I thank you. The world is too critical, this should be our safe place to come and share with our friends. We all have the good, bad and exceptional in our lives, and it's nice to know we do have friends here in blogland. And, while we can't hug physically, we sure can on our blogs!

Thank you for your encouraging words, my friend!

Blessings,
Donna

I love this, Jill! You're the best! I admit - when I first started blogging, I was unsure how much of myself to "put out there." Now, I don't worry about it so much. Thanks for being one of my faithful followers!
Hugs, Cindy
