How often do you laugh at yourself?
I laugh at myself rather a lot!!!
Today one of my customers mentioned as a ‘by the by’ that they had read my last newsletter and loved it. Instantly I was more alert, if I were a dog my ears would have been pricked and my response would have been heard as sharp, quick bursts of yapping. A rapid series of questions to establish that yes, she had meant my blog…so I laughed and asked if I could admit that I had heaps to write about and expected to be writing often BUT nobody had commented and so I hadn’t written anything more. A new blog with no responses, it looked sad and somewhat shameful to me. How could I write another? No one I knew had even signed up (forgive me to the two bloggers who did!) What was the point?
So she laughed with me and made it her fault a bit, she’d been going to comment…She kindly told me that I should keep writing because I was good at it.
Some of the writing I do helps me. Journaling kind of stuff that gets it out of your head and enables you to see a situation with more clarity.
A blog isn’t about talking to yourself though but now that I know I have an audience, I’m happy!
