This week I am grateful for blog posts and comments which provide me with much-needed perspective and support.
I have read blogs for many years and it actually started by chance. I bought a book written by this blogger (I first saw her on TV) for an infertile friend and I decided to read the book before giving it to my friend. In her book, Tertia made a number of references to her “friends in the computer”. I didn’t completely get it at that point. I saw that she had her blog url on the back cover of her book. One day at work I went onto her site and since that day I have been hooked! I clicked and clicked and clicked and a whole new world opened up. Literally.
For the next few years I continued to just read blogs and then I started this one during the last quarter of 2010.
I read many different types of blogs. I like real-life type blogs, I read Mommy blogs, I read funny blogs, I read some spiritual-type blogs, I read food blogs, I read a few décor and organising blogs and a few craft blogs. I read blogs which literally pierce my heart and speak to my soul in a way that no one else can.
Sometimes I read a post that I feel is written just for me.
Other times I read a post like this one which makes me laugh out loud. Literally.
Other times I read a post like this and will be nodding my head after every sentence.
Occasionally I will read a post that takes my breath away and puts my mind into overdrive – so much so that I can’t even comment.
Then there are beautifully written posts like this one. So raw and filled with deep love and emotions that they move me to tears.
There are posts that inspire me.
There are posts that make me think about where I am at in my life, posts which force me to consider how I view myself and those which make me reconsider how I tend to approach situations.
There are posts where the blogger is having so much fun with trying new things. Posts like this make me smile and wonder why I’m so hesitant to explore my creativity.
There are posts with beautiful, evocative imagery which give me goosebumps. Literally.
And of course there are posts like this where the comments are literally a life-line without the readers/ commenters even realising it.
I often wonder where I what kind of stuff I would be doing if I wasn’t reading blogs. I do know that I would be spending so much more money on therapy.
Today I am grateful that I have this form of cheap therapy in my life. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have it.
