Friends, I'm yet to meet.
Last Update: Jul 27, 2018
Do you get a lot of emails?
Do you feel they take up too much time?.
I use too, then I saw a quote " If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life"
That got me thinking, I do love what I am doing. I am learning, growing, uplifting, being uplifted and building an online business. All this so far, has already surpassed my heart felt desires.
What I am learning, for me is I love to uplift others and help them awaken and be empowered.. To see their inner light shine through.
So back to the emails. With a changed mindset of loving what I do, I read my emails and share uplifting comments. Not flattery but genuine, feel good comments. This feels so much better and of course the extra gem of being uplifted. Like attracts like :)
Weeks later, I now realise, I am matching faces to names. I would even see a name and before I push it, I would visualize what that person looked like from their profile picture, and I feel so happy when I had a match lol real people are at the end of our comments.
Friendships are being formed. You get to know a bit about a person each time you read their posts. You can support, care, suggest and help. I have favourite writers and I look forward to their posts. All this because I looked at my email list as a positive way of getting to know my network.
As the saying goes, the giver also receives. I am a part of a community which I believe is second to none. I have a safe place to land while I am creating a new way of life and a new way of being. Because of this amazing community I am uplifted, encouraged, inspired every day to keep going and you know what? From that place of being encouraged, I become more productive!
Win Win all round.
Thank you for letting me share my thoughts with you :)
Thanks for sharing these thoughts, Di. You have a nice way of putting things into perspective!
I actually dumped about 2000 e-mails today from my main account. I subscribe to a lot of newsletters and if they have an interesting headline, I save them to read later. Well, since it is the middle of 2018 and I had some that dated back as far as early 2015, I had to do a "cleaning". I still have close to 4000 emails to go through, but I got a good start on them today!
Wow Karin, you are a busy lady. I had to do same (not as popular as you though hehe) so I could spend my time working with WA. No loss since I have gained so much more here :)
Clearing the clutter is quite therapeutic.
Happy dumping :)
Love your post Di!
I am happy to be here :)
Lovely, lovely post! ... thanks kindly for sharing... all the best... :)
