A Thought to Give Pause


A thought to give us pause is just that.  I have been blogging for a while now, not a terribly long time but for a while.  Am I the best blogger on the Internet? Certainly not, I am a far cry from the best, but I do try and give out good posts as often as I can.  I also enjoy going around to other blogs to see what others are talking about.

While in my state of wandering, I have discovered something really sad that has been taking place.  People insulting, tearing down or demeaning other folks.  I do not understand the reasoning or the mentality behind this, nor do I really want to.  I know that some folks can only feel big if they can make someone else feel small.  I know some folks are just lashing out because it’s so easy to do with people you really don’t know and physically can’t  see.  I know it’s easy to overlook others and their feelings on the internet, we don’t all know each other.  This can leave some folks thinking it’s ok because, after all, they are never going to meet that person.

Writing posts on a blog can sometimes be difficult.  There are times we can all write as if we were Mark Twain, then other times we can’t come up with one clear, concise thought!  I do believe we all try and try the best we can to put our ideas, thoughts, and suggestions down for other to “enjoy”, “learn from”, or just have a good laugh!

I might not always agree with someone else’s thoughts or views but I always thank them.  I thank them for taking the time to write their thoughts and views, I thank them for taking the time and energy to put that post in place.

Are there blogs that would leave me wanting to reach out and slap someone? You Bet –  but I don’t go to those blogs – how simple is that?  In some cases, someone is very new to blogging and writing.  They are giving their all to write a good post, they are giving their all to learn how to write! I give them great praise because they are trying and deserve recognition for their efforts.

Some of you reading this post are far, far advanced to me, some are brand new ! This said, I do believe you all know the importance of respecting others because Hey – we want respect also.

So, I give pause to say, you do not have to physically know someone in order to watch what you say or to appreciate each others efforts. There is a real person out there who has feelings, a person who would love to hear complements that will uplift their spirit and just make them feel good!


Have a Wonderful Day and Be Blessed!

  • Excellent post as always and you are so right at all the bitterness that you see on others blogs and it’s so sad – even on the social sites – sure wish others could turn all that negativity into positive thoughts.

      Amen to that! A little negativity is painful – a little praise is uplifting! Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate your thoughts.

  • I really appreciate all the effort you put into your writing by giving us a glimpse of your thoughts in written form. You always do a wonderful job on your blog posts and as always you did a great job on this one. Keep up the good work Ellen….Good Job!

  • Thank you Ellen for such a great post. You are such an inspiration to share this. If people only knew and cared about how much words can either lift up or totally destroy others and would do unto others as they would have others do unto them…..We would all be so much happier. Great post my firend.

      Hi Tammie, Thank you so much! Yes, words actually can break bones. We should care for each other, not tear each other down. Thank you so much for stopping by my friend.
