Ronnie asks, if I could back in time, what advice would I give myself.
I think we all have things we wish we had done or decided differently. Overall, I believe in living life with few regrets. Most people make decisions based on the information available at the time, and make what they think is the best choice. That does not always prove to be true, but then one adjusts.
I would tell myself...although I am pretty sure I would not have listened, to be braver, to dare to make changes, to not be so concerned about what others think. To listen to that inner voice, that I worked very hard at silencing. I think for most of us, age brings more wisdom and tolerance, we could use those when we are young!!!!
Having said that, I also have to add...would I change anything...I think not. My children are grown adults, who I am very proud of, I have 4 of the most beautiful grand children on the planet, I had a job that I loved (mostly), and made friends that are really family....and just when I thought the best was behind me...I met Master. I would not be willing to give any of those things up!
aisha asks why did I start blogging and what role does it play in my dynamic..
I have been blogging for almost 3 years...YIKES! I read blogs long before that, and would sometimes discuss them with Master. He started to tell me I should blog, and I would say maybe, someday....One day, He said, I want you to start a blog, offered to help with any of the technical stuff, but I was to start that week. I did, although I was worried, what if no one read it, or worse yet, what if they read it once and never came back?
I think it was after 3 posts, Master said something about the post, and I said it is my last one...I am done. He asked why, I am not sure what I said, and He told me to continue for 3 months, if I still felt the same way then, it would be my choice. I know....wise man.
What role does it play in our dynamic...not a big one. It is sometimes easier for me to write about certain subjects than talk about them, so sometimes it has helped on the communication issue..although I am lots better at the talking part. When I first started I wrote thinking about Him, but now, it is mostly about me, what I think and want to say. Master does automatically get a copy of each post, and sometimes we discuss them, but not always.
I think the bigger impact on the dynamic has been all of YOU...I often bring up ideas based on what I have read, and of course, you all have helped me to feel somewhat more 'normal', especially at the beginning.
Blogging has been a plus, new friends, new ideas, and at times, a help to better communication!
Thanks aisha and ronnie
