I Matter And So Do You

Okay, I had two awesome things happen yesterday... first I was amazed and quite thrilled that I had 200 views on my blog in one day.  I remember when I had 30-40 views and then I went up to close to a 100 per day. This amazed me and I felt so grateful that so many people would be viewing my little blog.  I love this outlet that I have to just write whatever I want to say.  Sometimes I have to curtail it a little, even if it is my diary, it is open so I can't write EVERYTHING I want to but that's okay.

I write in a way that I know what it means and only people extremely close to me would ever guess exactly what I was saying sometimes.  There is very little that I don't open up to in this blog... just a few things, which I am sure will eventually come to light.  I just need to prepare myself before I bare my whole soul like that.  One day in the near future it will happen as I am an open and honest person.
The second thing that happened was so wonderful, as I have said in the past I follow a number of blogs, like 70-80 regularly.  I will tell you this, if I read your blog and I am touched, I will comment.  Some people have touched me and I read their blog whenever they open up and write something new.  I often wonder if they care that I comment as they never say a thing back to me....  there are times I think that I should just move on to people who care if I comment but I keep staying with certain people because they touch me deep inside.

So, one particular blogger who has never said anything to me (7-8 months), messaged me today and told me that she was truly touched by each and every comment I have ever written to her... which nearly made me cry.  I hadn't realized how much she liked it, how much she really appreciated it.  She made me realize that some people are going through a very difficult time and even if they don't comment back, they are still taking in what I write, knowing I really care.
If I comment on your blog, I care about you... I think about you and I am super excited when you post a blog.  I don't comment just because... I comment because I care.  So, I realized that there are a few blogs that I gave up commenting on, thinking they didn't care.  I am re thinking that and I am going to look back at a few of those blogs and comment again.  You never know how you can touch another person.

I know this to be true because when anyone comments on my blog... I am truly touched, truly grateful and truly thankful... I know that it is an effort to follow someones blog and to comment often... especially on mine, I blog so much.  I write everyday, I rarely miss a day... I would write more but I have to stop myself at times and save a few for another day.

All of this brought about a lovely ending to a wonderful day.  I had a very spiritual evening that uplifted and inspired me.  Then I had an amazing talk with my David, it was so funny that I honestly thought I wasn't going to be able to stop laughing... I am kind of chuckling at it even now.  My 'D' has such an odd sense of humor... me too though... which makes for some long hearty laughs.
Here is part of what we talked about... he asked me 'how my Wednesday night was?'  I laughed and typed... 'ahhh, it's Tuesday'... he said, 'I am officially nuts.. lmao..' Then he said 'it comes from being on exercise where they don't use the days of the week.. they use D day... D-3, D-2 and so on..'  So than I said, 'oh, they named it after you.. since I call him my 'D'...'  It kept going from there.  We are like that, the conversation flows from one goofy thing to another and we are both laughing hysterically.

I know, you had to be there... trust me... we are a hoot together, we get each others humor... Besides, I am actually pretty funny, especially if you listen to all the silly things I have done or crazy life choices I have made... I am pretty good at making people laugh... it helps that I am a people person.  If you met me face to face you would see I am just as open as I am here, maybe even a little more so.

Also, if you comment on my blog, I will look at your blog and if I am inspired, touched or if you make me laugh... I will comment back... I will continue if you grab my attention.  I just like to know that you care... that's all any of us want.

  1. I'm happy for you that you had a good day yesterday. It's true too that we never really know how many others might be touched by our words whether through blogging or commenting on them. I appreciate your comments on my blogs. :) Thank you for them. I haven't blogged for a while because I've been so busy, but hope to blog again soon.

  2. Daisy, I really want to thank you for your comments... you always make me feel special. I figured you were busy, I look forward to a new post from you when you have the time:)

  3. I love the inspiration of your blog...and just read the status on your facebook...don't be afraid of the space between the dreams. Yeahhh!!! Need to hear that. Thank you for you!!!

  4. Awe, thank you Nikki :). You are SO sweet!!!

  5. It is so true Launna we do not realise how we can touch people when we can think it doesn't matter if we comment as in a blog or drop a txt to someone and so on.

    It is nice to have moments like you had with your David. They bring a smile when you reflect on them, warm your heart. I am glad you had such a moment.


  6. Thank you Behind the Smile... it is wonderful to know that I have uplifted people and let them know that they matter and that I care.

    My heart loved my talk with David, he always makes me smile :)


I love and appreciate all genuine comments, to save a little time, I won't be commenting on the comments on my blog (unless you don't have a blog), I will just visit your blog and comment there, if you have left a meaningful comment for me... I would much rather spend the time reading and commenting on a few extra blogs ❤
