Many bloggers share personal everyday experiences, even when their blogs have a particular non-personal theme. I like that. A lot. I’m not as prone to disclosing facets of my life. Truth is: I have next to nothing at this juncture to disclose (not being negative, just candid).
Currently, my time (for those not in the know) consists of caregiving for Mom and working a 9-5 job. I was recently put into a new role and, to be frank, it’s “tryingly stressful”. Time has become even more of a factor—i.e. I’m scrambling to grasp it. Also have another [minor but unpleasant] health issue. As such, my life at this time doesn’t seem overly joyous/joyful, but it’s all good (downs and ups are par for the course).
I do, however, find absolute joy in the fabulous blogs I follow, too many to mention here. They entertain, inform, inspire . . . and keep me motivated when I sometimes want to give up.
I love that my fellow [faithful and focused] bloggers:
- write so eloquently that a casual walk along a sidewalk sounds exciting
- share their struggles [addictions/disabilities] and successes in overcoming them
- post picturesque pictures of travels and loved ones with lovely lyrical tales
- engage in ambitious projects . . . and then engage us in the excitement
- have adorable pets that provide much pleasure and that awesome unconditional love
- communicate their writing progress and process in enlightening detail
- reveal their faith—and inspire us to maintain ours
- impart information in fascinating and edifying ways
- offer [welcome] support, guidance, and friendship.
Accolades to you all, my friends. You make the blogging world such a brighter place. Count your God-given blessings, and honor your talents. And should life/work ever seem tough or challenging, never give up. We’d be lost without you.

Hi Tyler. This essay is a good reminder to people that putting things in perspective and trying to keep a positive attitude are the ways to go.
Take care —
Thank you. It’s not always easy keeping that positive outlook, but when that black cloud looms overhead, we have to strive to find a teeny-weeny ray of sunshine; it’s there (it truly is). Take care, my friend. 🙂
Funny that you don’t count yourself as one of these bloggers. I for one, like dropping by and reading what you have to say.
That’s very kind. Thank you, Jina. 🙂
