I truly appreciate every comment I receive.
As a blog reader, I know that it can be time consuming to post a comment... I myself am guilty of not commenting enough. I read dozens of posts every day and sometimes only comment on 1 or 2... if any. It's something I want to work on because receiving a nice comment can really turn your day around. Really.
The other day, for example, I was having a rough time. I've been feeling overwhelmed at work and unappreciated at home. I feel loved, of course... and it's nothing in particular, but I've been feeling a little down. I put a lot of pressure on myself to get.everything.done. and take.care.of.everyone. And let's face it. I can't do it all.
Then I got this comment from Lynn over at Hearted Girl:
"hi Lena, thanks for visiting me! it's always amazing to run into fellow Canadian bloggers and your whole entire aura is like a 100watt light. i dig your about page and the refined way you break down the important aspects and loves of your life. these matching looks are super adorbs, Ruby is a total rockstar and your shirt is EPIC lades!!! fact is, your blog makes me smile and also winds up my inspiration. happy fallidays to you and yours! ♥"
Lynn is a new reader and it warmed my heart to know she had taken a few minutes of HER time to learn more about ME. She didn't have to comment other than she liked the pics in my post... but she went on to say that my blog made her smile. And that made me smile.
Then I thought back to the sweet comment Renae of Simple Sequins left for me last week on a different post:
"Would you believe; Target? hahahaha. That is pretty pathetic, huh? I shop at thrift shops. They aren't online. I have heard of a few online consignment places but I would rather just swap out with Plato's Closet and call it good. Great post tho. Pointed out more places I should consider. and ...smack me but I just learned you are Canadian. doh. (read your "about" page) Over the past couple of weeks I have gravitated back to your blog and I am loving it here! ♥"
Renae is always leaving me sweet comments like that... and last week, I'm pretty sure she visited every Passion For Fashion linkup & commented on their post too. How amazing is that? Again, someone selfishly taking time to make someone else feel good. I love it.
I want to give Jo of Will The Kids Turn Out Okay? a shout out too. She's another woman who always has something nice to say. When I posted last week about feeling a bit conceited when blogging about myself, she had this to say:
"Don't think you need to worry, I don't think any of your readers think you are conceited. We all just think you rock!"
Awww, shucks. Really?
It's so awesome to know that what we're putting out there is being received in a positive way.
So, thank you to everyone who has ever left me a sweet comment... you rock!
As of today I promise to make more of an effort to let YOU know how much I appreciate you too!
