Wow! I don’t do anything in just a small way. Below is the list of all the blogs I have been following for the past year (2010) or so. I admire the writers, creative souls typing their thoughts, musings and more for other’s enjoyment. However, I find myself not really taking the time to read them-. Just push the down button while the screen scrolls rapidly through the words and pictures. Sometimes I find inspiration, ideas & insights. I then try to “like” the post, comment, email etc. I find myself spending more time on this than I want and not feeling like much good comes from it. Just another to-do on my never-ending list. A distraction from what’s important, what hurts, what I must do. I have decided to give them up, ‘un-follow’. In an effort to include more AND in my life I will be keeping a few of the following blogs that I thoroughly enjoy. I will savor the words and smile over the pictures. Thoroughly enjoy the small bounty instead of gorging on the buffet.
