Embrace Ephemeral Friendships

Today, as I looked over the WordPress 2012 yearly report as compared to my 2011 report, I noticed an interesting change. It was not the increase in posts, views, or the countries most of my readers came from, since I posted pretty much everyday during the first half of 2012, but due to outside personal demands, decreased the frequency to at least three to four times a week.

No, the interesting change came from the top commentators section…then it hit me: Most of the names changed from last year! 

Of the five from 2011, three are actively blogging and we remain in touch as time permits. Another blogger seems to have gone into semi-blogging retirement and only one has remained my top commentator in both years. 

She is a top-notch, queen of blogging, none other than, Elizabeth– Mirth and Motivation!

This is what I think.

Friendships, whether it is long-term or just for a moment, is precious.

Every moment we spend together with a friend, whether in person, a phone conversation or sharing thoughts through blog commentaries is time given to us to be grateful.

Not every friendship is capable to last, unfortunately, just one of those glitches in the circle of life, and like the dayflowers that bloom for a day; some friendships are just those…ephemeral beauties.

Embrace beautiful ephemeral friendships in deep gratitude.

To everyone who has been kind enough to subscribe, visit and chat, thank you so much. You made my 2012 the happiest ever and I cannot think of better words to leave you with than Marcel Proust’s quote:

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our soul blossom.”

If you are curious to see my other four top commentators for 2012, you can read my gratitude post to them here:

What interesting thing did you find over at your WordPress Yearly report?

But wait…

Curtain Call: Featured Blog

long road

“No road is long with good company.”

~Turkish Proverb

Good company is always great to have on your blog journey and Implicado, shares his world through his camera. You not only learn many things about his home country, Mexico, like death and life or Bullfighting, but he is all heart.

This is my favorite Cedric @ Implicado mantra:

 “All is well, everything is working out for my highest good, and out of this situation only good will come. I am safe” 

He says he does not like cats…only this kind of Jellicle Cat.  Haha…cheers to great company and to great blog friendships!

    I had never thought of having “friends” I had never actually met…seen…or really know very much about…but, I do!…through the blogging world…I have gained so much from each one I have read …The world is amazing but, the “People” who are in it are awesome!

    I am honored!

    Life has many faces. Sometimes not the ones we would like to see. Nevertheless, it hint us with sparkles here and there, that shine and lit new forms, new ways, new spaces… that guide us to whom we want to be so we can express ourselves.

    You are surrounded by all those sparkles that simply make you charming.

    Thank you.

    When I started blogging on WordPress, I had no idea how my life would be year later and how many people I would met. I feel like bonded with people and animals I never met before. I cry with people I never heard of and I’m always happy, when somebody gives me the feeling that I’m welcome. Besides what you’re writing about, you give me that feeling, Sunshine, that’s why I always come back… followed by Little Binky of course 😉
