A Time for Reflection # 49

As the page 📖 has turned from one year to the next, I like to sit back and reflect on things in terms of my time on this site and personally, out in the 'real world'.

2018 was an interesting year, filled with highs and lows.

People bickering on here about the proper use of blogs, erotic stories and the magazine section. Others complaining about being bombarded with unwelcomed 'dick pics'. Some trying to publicly shame those who couldn't accept No for an answer. The push to be #1 on the various blog lists. People 'threatening' to leave, then back-pedalling. Friendships questioned.

Personally, I have discovered how much I enjoy the freedom to fill my 'space' the way that I am comfortable. I didn’t set out with a goal of achieving a certain number of ‘watchers’ 👀 nor do I post expecting a certain number of comments ✍️. However, whenever someone takes time 🕰 out of their day to stop by my space, it really is a bonus. 💯 never looked and felt so good.

I allowed myself to get drawn into the 'blog wars'. The pettiness of the 'she said, she said' nonsense really has no place on here. Going forward, I will not do that again. Unless something derogatory is directed at me personally, I will keep my mouth shut.

I also had the opportunity to travel 🏙 to some places I had only read about or seen on tv. I also enjoyed being a tourist in my own city and country. I am looking to do more this year.

I am an avid reader, signing out 10-12 books 📚 every 21 days. Many new authors caught my attention and have been added to my 'must-read list'.

Movies 🎥 are something else I enjoy, though some will argue otherwise. Amongst the 'gems' I saw were: 'Molly's Game'; 'The Book Club'; 'Crazy Rich Asians'; 'Sharkwater Extinction' and 'A Star Is Born'.

I lost a dear Aunt who was like a second Mother to me. She was the rock of the family and ruled with an iron fist. However I could talk to her about anything and I miss her dearly.

I also came face-to-face with my own mortality. I was told more than once, that I must have a guardian angel 👼🏻 looking out for me and that many don't survive. Seeing my specialist beaming from ear-to-ear while he told me that the reason I am still here is because I am a strong, resilient woman, is an image I will never forget. I am not totally out of the woods yet, but I can assure you, life is precious and should never be taken for granted. I will continue to get stronger and put myself first and foremost.

So why do I stay on here? Because I can. I don't have to explain myself to anyone. I do smile when I am told that I am 'way too normal' or 'far too nice' to be on here. I am me. I don't try nor pretend to be anyone else. Who you encounter on here, is the same woman who would meet 'out there'.

Today is the first day of 2019. I can’t wait to see how it unfolds!



Stimulate my mind and the possibilities are endless.

Only momentarily.. otherwise I'd tend to get bogged down in yesterday... THIS moment is the only one, I can control, and at best - it's an illusion that I have, complete control.
It sounds like you've had an interesting year with challenges that you've faced and overcome! Good luck here in blog land - it looks like you've got a loyal and growing following.
All the best for 2019! May health follow you every day! 😘❤️

Life in general has become filled with stuff, good and not so good, so there is little time to reflect on the past or to consider the future. Life also has a habit of interfering with future plans.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Yes my friend. "What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' is a mantra I have lived by for many years. It's important to take a stand for things that are important to you. And you know others will have your back.

I do the reflection thing, maybe too often but it helps identify things for improvement, set new goals, etc, etc!

Really glad to read you're winning the battle with your medical problems. I hope you continue to improve and are able to enjoy life fully. Sorry for the loss of your Aunt. Sounds like you were both blessed with a wonderful relationship.

All the best in 2019 sweet friend.

My erotic stories are mainly fiction with certain activities inspired by real life. 😁

Werd.

I am with you all of the way with this blog post.

I have been a peripheral pressence here for a while and don't like to make waves and i enjoy keeping to myself. So, the battle for top blog has never been a goal and I'm a little grouchy that i showed up on the list of bloggers now.. but same as you. I'm just here because i want to be here and have no goals for world domination.

Most of my reading was spent on articles on science, politics and maybe some form of sub-literature geared at rotting my brain.

I agree that often it's a tragedy or having to face our own mortality as the result of illness, accident or other, that makes us take stock of what's really important to us. We should live each day to the best of our abilities as we do not if there will be a tomorrow.
