I kept telling myself that I need to spend less time in the ActiveRain Community.
Why? Because I have a list a mile long of other things I need to do. I think about all the things I could accomplish with the time I spend in the Rain.
It's Sunday morning and I decided I'm jumping into the Rain for a few minutes while I enjoy my morning Cup of Joe. This decision was made despite the fact that last night I declared that I was not going to log-in to ActiveRain this morning. I declared I would complete other things first.
This morning I decided I'd just read some posts, comment and check out the Q&A section.
I think I will only reading and commenting for an hour. That rarely happens because I am drawn to the powerhouse of professionals that participate in this community.
"A spontaneous or natural liking or sympathy for someone or something."
As I am reading in the Rain this morning I am reminded of how smart, strong, powerful and opinionated members are. I mean that in the best way!
Further, it does not seem that those I follow hold anything back. I love that. I have so much respect for members that don't fluff pillows and just speak their truth.
I do believe it is important to be respectful and supportive. I also believe that if we do not have a kind and constructive comment ... it is best to just move on and leave no comment at all.
There is already that affinity with those I follow. My level of RESPECT for people who speak their TRUTH without FEAR just goes through the roof.
As for spending less time in the ActiveRain community, I was reminded this morning that I do enjoy my addiction.
This community ROCKS!!
My time is well spent here.
THANK YOU ACTIVERAIN!
