A post earlier this week from Suze prompted such a long comment from me (rare, I know!) that I decided it would make a good blog post discussion.
We’re all here to make connections. We share a little of our world and hope it resonates with others. I think women are better at it than men. As my character Byron would say, we like our privacy.
However, I do try to share what I enjoy. I dig movies, music, tech stuff, and books. I try to say more than simply they rock as well. It’s often difficult to say exactly why I like something. Enough of you leave comments stating you understand or share my views, so hopefully the why comes through now and again.
I claim only a few of Byron’s traits. Yes, I’m a perfectionist and I strive to be the best at what I do. However, when it comes to the privacy thing, I’m probably more like him than I’m willing to admit. He wants connection, but doesn’t know how, and yeah, sometimes that’s me.
In making these connections, I think the best thing we can do is stay true to ourselves. We can’t abandon who we are or our values. What I write about and the way I write is true to me, both here on my blog and in my books. Hopefully it appeals to you as well.
I appreciate every person I’ve connected to online. You continue to visit, encouraging and sometimes humoring me. In real life, my circle of close friends is very small. But here, it feels much larger. You all have something special to offer and I enjoy following your journey through life.
I’d like to know your thoughts. Even Byron finally allowed a meaningful connection in his life. Are there meaningful connections here for you?
