And speaking to all you wonderful blogging friends, sometimes I do not get to visit as often as I would like and that brings me to another thought. How much time do I spend connecting? When does something good turn into something more?? I ask myself this frequently. Am I getting too caught up in how many “followers” I have or how many comments I receive? How many times a day do I check for new comments??? I know for me I do have to be careful. I know that I like affirmation. I like it when someone says I have done something wonderful. And I think that is okay to a point. But I must be careful that I do not base my worth on what I do, and if I do it well.
I think another reason I blog is to share my journey. My hope is that in asking myself questions or voicing my weaknesses and struggles they will speak to fellow travelers with the same or similar questions. Also, in giving the questions, insecurities, and ideas a voice they may encourage others to begin to look at their own questions and heart.
I am sure the reasons to blog are as various as the bloggers themselves. But I think there is a desire to connect within all of us. I want to say thank you for those I have met along this journey. You have enriched my life greatly – each and every one of you.
Blessings to you all!
