Blogs are really a person's window to communicating with the world. Just within a few hours of putting in my first entries, I've received quite a few comments. Some, not too pleasant either, I must say :O
To those of you who were annoyed somehow by what I do with my blog, I say: Take it easy. Why not just enjoy the pretty graphics, and move on?
I had intended to postpone writing a proper first entry until the end of my exams. But, I guess it won't wait.
I was apprehensive about having a blog initially. A diary open to the world?? And then, I thought, it could be interesting as well – to share with the world my thoughts and experiences, joy and sorrows, doubts and hopes, and to have the world share them back with me too. And so, cautiously, I took my first step into the world of Blogs. I must say that the welcome I received wasn't exactly heart-warming :P
Perhaps tempers are short in this stressful times of exams.
Blogs, the way I see it, is a place for sharing, and a platform for free speech and freedom of expression. If a blog is a shop, people come and go. Some find something they like, and stop for a while. Some peek in and walk away. Some shops sell food, some sell antiques. Each has something to sell, each has its own worth. Even if you think antiques are a waste of money, that is no reason to throw stones at the shop window.
Our lives are marked by the relationships we build up with the people around us. Many would walk into our lives through the years; some would leave footprints in our hearts. But everyone has something that we can learn from, if not about ourselves.
Take the time to listen to what everyone has to say, to listen beyond what is said, and to listen behind that which is not said. That, is respect.
Beware of the mind that passes judgement too quickly or too harshly. That, is wisdom.
At the end of the day, the choice is yours to make. And the choices we make, are what make us who we are.
All's said, I do accept that everyone is entitled to have their say. So, thanx for popping by my Blog.
Good Luck for the exams!
Smile – Spring is in the air! :)
