The Dynamics of Blogging

Relationships. No, I’m not talking about THOSE [romantic] kind of relationships…although I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and I thank God for him. I am talking about a different, unique type of relationship: relationships on the blogosphere.

When I first started this blog many moons ago (*cough* okay, so it’s only been since the middle of last year), I never would have imagined the types of relationships that being a part of a blogging community would expose me to. I have “met” so many fun and interesting people, and I have learned a thing or two [or more! ;-)] from each one of them.

But the thing is, meeting all of these awesome people on the web and getting to see snapshots of their lives through viewing their blogs—only makes me want to learn MORE about them. I want to know who they are, what they enjoy, what makes them tick, what they’re passionate about–and I want to be a part of that.

So if you’ve read this far, I’d like to propose that you participate in a little exercise with me. In the comment section of this post, leave THREE WORDS that describe you. Now don’t think too much about this–I would probably just go with the first things that pop into your head. But I believe that this could be a good way that I could get to know each of you better…and hey, maybe we can all learn something new about each other!

To get things started, I’ll go first: Spiritual. Emotional. Artistic.

Now it’s YOUR turn. Go! 😀

      1. I imagine it takes as much time to get to know me as any other person. When we are teens, we have a lot more time to connect in high school or sporting events. Once we grow up and get a job, there is less time to meet new people and talk. People tend to hang on to those high school friends but people move, have families, get busy. So, no, I don’t think it takes anything extra. I’m pretty simple. People just mistake me for complicated. 🙂

      1. People used to take advantage of me all the time until life circumstances toughened me up a bit and gave me the backbone to not put up with it. I’ve spent many years isolated and licking my wounds bc of it. I suppose I’m less sensitive and empathetic than I was, but I’m still kind (I hope!) thanks for asking!

    1. I like your first attribute a lot. 🙂 Does loving others come naturally for you? Sometimes it’s very difficult to be selfless! And that’s so neat to be a part of bringing healing to other people. Do you have a specific time that stands out to you? And you said that you are a seeker–what is it that you are seeking?

      1. Yes love comes naturally for me. I believe that because of my life I chose to live as unconditionally loving as I can. Do I make mistakes, absolutely. But I’m never to proud to admit it. What I had to learn in my growth is that being loving doesn’t mean I don’t take care of myself first, So, there is some degree of “selfishness” in being loving.
        Healing as been apart of my life since I was a little girl. There is no effort on my part it just happens. I believe that the people are sent that ask. Now I’m not healed any physical impairments, just a few hearts and spirits. I’ve become more open and understand better my purpose here. Just last week in Starbucks i had an encounter with a woman, random but not random, stranger but not a stranger. Spirit moved to talk to her about her daughter that had passed. I didn’t know when I approached her that she had had this happen, my message was it’s ok, and there is such love in your heart, more than enough. And everything is as it should be, little did I know she had 2 young daughts that needed her to let go of her hurt and know the E was right where she is. E is happy and doesn’t what you to be sad anymore, because everything is perfect. This happened so quickly that I was shocked. She told me she came there to meet me and this wqs exactly what she needed to hear. There’s more of those stories.
        Seeker of truth, who I am. So I’m not always about knowledge but getting to know who I am, inside not outside better.

      2. Wow! Thank you for your response. I can relate to the struggle in love with being unselfish but also taking care of yourself. I’m still trying to figure that one out! 🙂
        And that is an amazing story about your encounter at Starbucks. Sometimes I feel certain nudges to talk to people or something similar, but don’t always respond by acting–so I think it’s so neat that you respond and are able to be used to help other people.
        And yes, it’s always a journey to get to know ourselves better! I had been frustrated by that aspect of my life for some time (not understanding myself or what my purpose in life is). But little by little, God is opening doors and opening my eyes to the ways He has gifted me and how He wants to use me.
        Thanks again for sharing! 🙂

    1. Thank you for responding! 🙂 You said that you are unresolved–is there a specific thing that you feel unresolved about? And if you don’t mind, could you tell me a little more about Ahimsa and Bhramacharya?

      Liked by 1 person

      1. By unresolved I meant the sanctification process; I believe I still have a lot of things to learn about the God who saved me and the purpose He has for me. (I guess – unresolved is a little inappropriate. A bad word choice maybe. haha!)

        Ahimsa and Bhramacharya are doctrines (or some believe it to be virtues). The former stands for non violence (both in thought and action) and the later for non indulgence or abstinence.

      2. I can really resonate with your comment about the sanctification process! I also have a lot to learn about God and the plans that He has for me. But a cool thing I’m learning is that it’s a day by day process–sometimes even a moment by moment process. I am definitely taking BABY steps! 🙂 But thankfully, God has me in His hands and is leading me at the pace that He has for me, and is unfolding His will for me as I trust Him and obey the little bit that I know. 🙂
        Thank you for sharing about Ahimsa and Bhramacharya. They definitely sound like good doctrines/virtues to seek to adhere to. 🙂

    1. Thank you for your response! 🙂
      Honesty has always been something that is very important to me. There are definitely pros and cons to it (as well as to your other attributes, as you mentioned)…like opening yourself up and showing who you really are, and not knowing how people will respond. But I’ve found that so far it is worth it. 🙂

  1. You two make the loveliest couple, but the way 🙂 May you stay forever happy together!

    Three words…three words…

    Mathematical – that was to be expected 😛
    Thoughtful – I think a lot over things
    Weird – I do the weirdest things, like falling off of chairs because I’m trying to eat in class or something (as you’ll know!), and I dance around a lot, but hey, there’s nothing wrong with a little interpretive dance now and then, now is there?! 😀

    1. Thank you, Z! 😀 And I like your words, especially weird–I can relate to that! *sticks thumbs in ears and wiggles fingers around, pokes tongue out of mouth at a strange angle, and hugely widens eyes, as if I were staring at a delicious chocolate treat* haha ! 😛
