You Might Like to Know

Recently, so many of the blogs I follow and those that follow me are writing about diets and needing to lose weight. Well, it's not as if I'm not in the same boat or anything but I just want to say to one and all that for me YOU ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL!

This is the wonder of the blogosphere -- we can see with a different eye and the 'eye' that we see with is the one that we alone can see -- it is not coloured by anyone's image but our own. It is true that the Internet can spawn many a loathsome creature but I feel truly blessed with the absolute beauty of those that come here. And the essence of YOU does not have pounds to lose, or bad hair days or baldness or age or youth. It's such a relief not to have contend with the physical veneer -- to be part of the ether ...

Ok, ok, now you can all go back to your diets and counting the calories, etc. Just thought it worth mentioning in passing the mayo light ... :-)

  2. What a great insight, Broad! I never thought of it that was before, but you're absolutely right. It does help a lot when bodies don't get in the way, whether they need to lose weight or not. :-) Thank you for that uplifting thought and I love you too!!

  3. Yeah, you're right. Bloggers are an okay bunch... except when we go off on a rant. Even then, when it's about something like Thanksgiving Comes First, it is okay, too.

  8. Thanks, Broad, that's just what I needed.
    With my hum-dinger of a cold and that sinking feeling when I look in the mirror or get on the scales, it's good to be appreciated !!

  10. Dear Broad,
    This insight of yours is a gift to all of us. Thank you. As the Little Prince said through Antoine de Saint-Exupery, "What is important is invisible to the eye." You have expressed that so well. Thank you.

    Peace.

  11. Good afternoon, Broad. Glad you found your way to Lifeonthecutoffs Blog. I think it's wonderful too.

    Just wanted to say the the link to your blog doesn't work on your Facebook info page as you missed out the all-important 'blogspot'. I didn't want to post this on Penny's blog and am not a member of Facebook, so thought I'd mention it here, so that you can delete this afterwards if you want to.

    1. I don't know what the problem is with FB, but because I have the domain name 'www.abroadwithaview.com' with GoDaddy.com, I've been able use it through Blogger -- with just a click or two! Now if someone goes to www.abroadwithaview.blogspot.com it automatically goes to www.abroadwithaview.com!

    2. Beyond me too, Broad. Sadly it means that anyone who clicks on the link does NOT get taken to your blog, which is a shame.

  12. Hello, dropped in for a visit fromElaine's Article View blog and heartily agree with your comments in this post. It is truly the person that matters. Sure many of us make those resolutions to improve ourselves in one way or another, but they don't change "who" we are deep down inside. I also enjoyed reading some of your remembrances in the 12 days of Christmas posts. Please do feel free to drop into our blog spot anytime this year too. Happy New Year!
