A Life Enhancing Comment

Hello there. This post comes from a deep place in my heart where the love is most pure and connected. We all know what it feels like to know when we are appreciated or if our words have inspired someone but in blogging, we don’t always get that confirmation. When we do, it sends those chills down our arm and we remember why we do what we do. For me, I write to inspire others. I write to support others. I right my life to then write about it. The same question arises now and then: “Does anyone actually read the stuff I write?”

Some days I wonder if my blog reaches anyone. Do I put it out on social media the “right” way? Have I written my post in a way that doesn’t scare people away? These are all questions I frequently ask myself.


Just the other day I was feeling a little flat about the way this blog is presented. I am constantly wanting to improve, to grow within and express that in posts like the one you are reading. As I fell asleep I asked a question (I always do this) and asked for guidance. Sometimes I wake up with an idea but most of the time it is an inspiration.

The next morning I received a beautiful comment on a blog I posted a while back about the humbling power of pain. The reader shared her feelings, her experience while reading the blogs and had been going through the archives receiving more and more light on her situation. I instantly knew this was my confirmation that I am doing what I am meant to be doing which was a blessing.

I found out about your website 2 days ago and for the past 2 days I have been reading your archive blog.  The more I read, the more I could relate to or find answers that I was looking for .  When I read the title “Pain ..feel it ..experience it  ..surrender to its flow .. move forward” it hit me as it is exactly how I have been feeling lately and I have been trying very hard to embrace the pain as you say.  Some days it works and others I just need to remind myself that I am worthy and I should keep going on this path of self-discovery.

I appreciate the fact that you constantly mention that you are not trying to give advice but rather share your experience.  So thank you for sharing as reading your blog for the past couple of days reminded me that I should rather embrace the good things that made me really happy at some point in a relationship that does not exist anymore.

Reading a genuine compliment is always nice, and while I don’t need it, I deeply appreciate it for its life enhancing quality. More importantly though, I want the person who took the time to comment to know their generous nature is something I hold in my heart with gratitude. I found it incredibly kind that someone would share so deeply and openly to someone they have never met.

It humbles me that my blog can help someone because, without comments like this one, I might not ever know.

I encourage you to take a moment and think about what your comment might mean to another person. The power of words can change our world. We can all be life enhancers if we choose to be.

Thank you for being here,

    tina @ Colourliving - How wonderful that your reader confirmed for you your purpose of the blog.

    For me, there’s nothing nicer than knowing I helped, supported or inspired someone. I have always really appreciated and valued the comments I get on my blog or any other Social Media channel and try and make sure I respond to let the person know that I appreciate them taking time out for me.

    That reminds em I’m behind with the responses on my blog comments:-)) xxReplyCancel
