I am extremely embarrassed by praise or awards.  Call me weird, anti-social or terror stricken; these words match me very well.  I was stuck for a polite response to a Blog Award I received in a comment, so I fretted and said nothing, but felt the guilt of silence weighing heavily upon me, so I created the blog image in my menu.  I hope not to offend, but this gave me days and days of anxiety.  I’m writing this to clarify my odd behavior, because I was enjoying replying to the few comments I received.

  1. Yip I know that feeling too .. through most of life really .. all praise .. I either felt like ..OO beam me up Scotty … or .. could the earth swallow me now please LOL .. took me quite some time to weed out that particular learnt pattern of behaviour .. I wasn’t ever used to praise ..only the opposite really … its one of those weeds in life’s garden that keeps us in the feeling less than space …. keeps us from flowing with our talents and blossoming ❤ LOVE your picture & your ART ❤ seems to me your writing is planting you some beautiful flowers 🙂 ❤
    Wishing you a Beautiful & Magical day ❤

  2. Love this image. Perfect response. Now I feel that my Award Free Blog image is incredibly inadequate. Oh, well. Hats off to you (even if my praise and envy makes you uncomfortable).


Any thoughts on the above post are appreciated! Otherwise, I think I must be living under a rock.
