“Sing your songs. Dance your dance, write your books, be you. Let everyone else worry about being themselves.” #SocialMediaMonday #What’sUp

Hi, I was emailed and asked to stop using the line, “The coffee is hot. The weather is too. So, here’s some love from me and Chief Seeing eye Dog Blue.” The opinionated reader told me it was redundant.in the winter, I always wrote, “The coffee is hot. the weather is not and that’s the way Chief Seeing Eye Blue Dog and I love it.”

I always write little catch phrases. It’s who I am and what I do. It’s like at the end of some of my posts and such I write, “May Harmony find You and Blessid Be.”

I’m fed up with people always finding fault with what I do. I was polite. Explained it was just a little catch phrase even thanked them for reading my posts.

So, sorry Charley, I’ll write what I wish. Nobody must read it if they don’t want to.

If my lines were offensive, I’d stop but there’s nothing offensive about these. So, they stay. If others don’t like it, they know how to go.

I once had a mentor say to me, “Sing your songs. Dance your dance, write your books, be you. Let everyone else worry about being themselves.”

I took way too long to learn that. Now, I’ve learned it there’s no going back. I must say I was rather amazed that someone would write and say that to me. I’m not angry. To be angry would give this too much importance. I’m only writing about it because I am just so taken aback by the boldness and rudeness and lack of respect some people have. It’s always gotta be about them and what they want, need, feel, Blah! Blah!

I don’t know what their deal is, but I maintain…

The coffee is hot. The weather is too. So, here’s some loving from me and Chief Seeing Eye Dog Blue.

    I noticed your change to that wording and it made me smile. That catch phrase always makes me smile. Different folks, I guess.

    1. Hi, Robbie. Thanks for reading and for your support. In fact, the support I’ve gotten from people has been a bit overwhelming. I never thought that my simple silly phrases made a difference to people. When I wrote this post it was honestly nothing more than my trying to find a decent way to vent my aggravation and disbelief at the audacity of the reader. I mean, really? Who does that? If I don’t likke something someone’s writing, I simply stop reading it. If it is truly offensive then yeah, I might suggest they cool out but if they keep going I know where my delete key is. Some people got too much time on their hands.
      Thanks and loves.
