Blog of the week: Janet’s smiles

Janet is never short on kindness. She is one of the readers who doesn’t hestitate to reflect and share their thoughts on what I shared. But more importantly, she is an awesome blogger with unique posts and style. So without further ado, meet Janet.

Posts you need to read

Like my writing, my reading is quite irregular. Sometimes I don’t visit for weeks and once I’m back, I don’t understand why I’ve ever left. You folks do faboulus things here, you keep things real, authentic, exciting and inspirational. Let me share a couple posts I especially connected the last week:

‘We Are The World’ Blogfest: “In darkness, be the light”

Do you ever sit in front of your TV, newspaper, news site, feeling sad, angry, discouraged about the status of the world? You’re not alone. I don’t believe that it is the reality. There is so much good, inspiration and love out there, but unfortunately it doesn’t get enough stage time in media. The ‘We…

Mystery Blogger Award

As I was sitting here debating whether it’s time to blog again, I got a notification from the lovely J Lenni Dorner: Mystery Blogger Award Number Two https://t.co/Aea7ZPSNiE@missandi0623 @jaishvats @debbypieplow @Frainstorm @LaurelGarver @fabulus1710 pic.twitter.com/h6B5gWhWvc — J Lenni Dorner (@JLenniDorner) June 7, 2017 If this is not a sign to restart blogging, I don’t know what…

Ideal is I to L

Dare to be gentle

Last night I didn’t know what to tell you in this post. I didn’t do any of the major things I had planned against the fear of “Being Seen”. Then I was chatting to a friend about how she struggles with wanting to be perfect and I told her how she should lovingly embrace that…

Challenge of the week: B for Being seen 

It is often I wish I were invisible. Not for the superhero or curiosity reason – simply because it would be the ultimate hiding. It’s hard for me when people see me – I always think they judge me, and I always concur that it’s with good reason. (Nobody is as hard on me as…

A to Z April: Facing my Fears

April is a queer little month. it can be full on spring with the sun shining, flowers blooming, birds chirping. Or it can be cold, windy, rainy and miserable. But whichever it is, it’s always the month of growth and change. The bare trees suddenly spring to life, providing green backdrop to the endless colours…

Can you recommend some blog challenges?

I have found prompts or challenges to be a great way not only to give a little framework to my randomly flowing thoughts but also to find out how differently we react to the same and seemingly simple start. But to find them…
