Makes sense to me

Forgive me blogger, for I have sinned” or so it feels like at times; and why I’m making this little confession tonight.

If you’ve been coming here for a while you do know that I call it as I see it. If you’re a newcomer, well, you’ll soon find out. On this blog I’ve been commented for sharing too much information and for not being appropriate for work. I’m not a writer, nor do I aspire to become one. I write because I enjoy it; because I want to share my stories, good, funny, sad and even bad.

When I started this blog it was to post my Friday Smiles. I still do those, even if I’ve had to “tame” my sense of humour a little. I was too “osé” (thus my warning in the header), but won’t apologize for it, that twisted sense of humour is me. Despite my need to please and be liked I’ve come to realise that I’m not willing to compromise on certain things.

I don’t always feel good or happy, I don’t like everybody “just because” nor am I nice all the time; but I do feel loved and for that I’m grateful. Do I need to list what I’m thankful about? I don’t think so, even if I’m aware it would make me even more aware of my good fortune. I’m not going to follow some fellow bloggers in their daily listing of “Grace in Small Things” since I don’t want to be blogging about that. Excuse me if I would rather bitch and moan on here, or go so sweet on you your blood sugar rises, but after all this is my blog!

Well, you just listed all the reasons why I enjoy reading your blog. There is only 1 you!

Monkey said...

Is someone giving you a hard time? Want me to kick them in the shins for you?
This is your blog- do what you want!

Marius said...

I'll do Monkey one better and aim my kick considerably higher. Lemme at 'em, lemme at 'em!!!!

We love you just the way you are, Mdme. Paw. :-)

I agree... YOUR blog, YOU call the shots. Keep it up! :-)

Of course that's your prerogative.

I started participating in Grace in Small Things for myself. I am aware that I complain a lot, and probably still will, but I also WANT to take the time to be grateful.

But like I said, I'm doing it for ME. Just as you are NOT doing it for YOU. :)

I don't understand people who leave comments that basically say, "don't write posts like this." It's as if they don't understand that they have the option of not reading and/or not commenting on every single post.

That said, I would prefer it if from now on you would only write posts related to meerkats. If you write anything that is not meerkat-related, I will be sure to let you know why you have disappointed me.

You've never ever tried to cover up or deny the fact of your honesty, whether it be in person or blogging - it's who you are. It's up to others to choose how they're to handle it. Stupid comments are as much a part of reality as the zombie morons cohabiting our planet. Alas, ignoring is an option, albeit easier said than done at times....said through clenched teeth and fake smile :-)

I'm sad I missed the really bad humor posts. I think our sense of humors are a lot alike. I have to keep mine cleaned up for the kids. It's not as much fun!! LOL!!

You are loved! Don't ever forget that, okay?

Hugs!!

What all the other commentors have said: Write on!

Marius said...

Um, can I change my vote to the meerkat thing? ;-)

tNb said...

Forgive my blog ignorance, but what the heck is 'Grace in Small Things'?

Stinkypaw said...

Janes: Well thank you madam!

Monkey: Thanks for the offer, I'll keep that in mind!

Marius: Aim good! That's my major target. And I love you the way you are as well Sire!

jason67: Thank you!

3C: That's nice and we're both so nicely decisive. :-)

flurrious: Once again you made me laugh. It's almost as if some people don't know about the "Next Blog" button. I'll think about the meerkats, since I do think them cute, AND I wouldn't want to disapoint YOU too much!

Mousse: Thanks, I'm getting better at the ignoring thing, and I had years of practise with Hubby's mom for the clenched teeth and fake smile! ;-)

traceyt: I won't forget, promise! If you want check out my Friday Smiles, at the beginning... you'll see.

Charlie: Coming from a writer, I'll carry on for sure! :-)

Marius: Sure why not!

The idea is great I'm just not up to sharing that much love daily...

For all of the above reasons you listed, I enjoy coming over to see you!

You are Real, Honest, Sincere,have a Beautiful Heart and a Great sense of Humor....I am twisted too! :)

I could name more, but you get the idea. I like you just the way you are! If 'they' want you to change...DON"T and chalk it up to be their loss! You rock girl!

Stinkypaw said...

periwinkle: Thank you, I think you're just as nice, if not more.
