I am sure many of you have heard of the company Mabel’s Label’s and that they are running a BlogHer '10 contest. Here is the challenge: You have one day left to write about your passions: what do you want to say to the blogosphere in 300 words or less? Here is my response:
Passions: family, health, respect, cancer research, science, everyday moments, kindness to everyone, exploring, loyalty, my word, your word, less suffering, valuing time with each person you encounter, making sure everyone feels included. You know that Golden Rule? Live it. Don't just preach it.
Remember that we have a postal system to support so break out the pen and spend some time buying quality papers and write. Go to the library and dust off the old phone books. I think they have one for each state so look up your friends and continue connecting. I will even place a Savor the Thyme ad so you can write and call me. I will also start planning a ‘No Longer Blogging’ Conference so we can all meet Face to Face and express ourselves and continue to connect. Contact me if you want to help.
In case, we never meet in person or speak, here is what else you need to know: I am sensitive, passionate about respect, very loyal, give 100% to my commitments, am rarely late (even after kids) and love to entertain. Now, I want you to print these quotes from Robert Fulghum and display them in at least one place:
Don't hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don't take things that aren't yours.
Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together.
Be aware of wonder
