This Little Light Of Mine ~
Point Sur Lighthouse
Recently on one of my blog post's, someone left a comment. It said, "Do you have a life?" I was, to say the least, taken back. I sat in front of the computer screen, stared at the comment and feeling a little defensive said out loud, "Well... sweetie, I AM TRYING TO!" I followed the commenter's trail and realized that was just her signature way of looking at life by reading her profile. I abruptly deleted her comment from my post as if I was shaking any negative energy from my cyber space proximity. I have come back to the thought of that comment, many time's since. It made me feel like maybe... I was boring and look more closely to what I do with my time or even what I post for that matter. Even if it was her way of looking at things in general, something inside her made her come to that conclusion about me, to actually type out her thought and glide the mouse over to the comment icon and click. I wish I didn't delete it now. I have gotten some comments on my faith in the past and even some that nicely put me back into shape. I like to think that I can take criticism and believe everyone has the right to their own opinions. I try to look at it constructively; serving to improve. I will continue to be me and I look forward to what life will bring me and what I will learn from it.
I realize that when you have a blog, you are literally putting yourself out there and leaving yourself vulnerable. I like to think the positive connections outway the negative and am so thankful for the new friendships that I have found here through blogging.
So blog world... thank you for the connections you have brought me!
