It's important to me to be "real". In this blog, I've shared with you my struggles with my faith and weight loss, the depression I go through during the holidays, and my failures with day to day life. I'm not perfect, never said I was. I was hoping that it might help someone else going through the same things, but perhaps that was vanity on my part, the thought that I could be helpful. Every Sunday evening before I write this blog, I ask God to give me the words to help others and give me a sign that I'm on the right track.
And it is kind of funny, that every time I think about quitting, someone new will leave a comment or one of my old friends will leave me a sweet message and I remember how nice those out there in cyberspace can be. I've met quite a few great people via this blog, some that will be friends forever. That's the one reason, I'll never regret creating this blog. But every once in a while, I get a snarky comment that makes me question the entire point of blogging. Usually they start out "I don't mean to judge, but..." You know, this makes me question the wisdom of laying it all out there for anyone to read. Sometimes it's something as innocent as a post about Christmas decorations or the price of chicken legs ,heck one gal even wanted to argue (basically calling me a liar) with me about last winter (2014) being cold although the record would agree with me. You just never know what people will judge you upon. And this may sound petty (hey I'm not perfect) but it really bothers me that those making the commenters usually don't have blogs for me to read and "judge" them upon. Not that I would because I am a firm believer in letting people lead their own lives and if you ever met the diverse collection of people that I call friends, you'd understand that. Long story short, the last "I don't mean to judge" comment was the final straw, and I've decided that there will be one less blog out there for those that judge to judge. I'll leave this blog up, so those that have recipes and patterns saved can use it, but I won't be posting anymore. Thank you to all those that have left kind comments over the years, I'll continue to visit yours.
PS: For those that read this post, thanks for letting me get this off my chest.
