Honoring Becoming a Writer: BBQ (Big Beautiful Blog Quotations) 4

After morning rainfallBeautiful Blog Quotation—BBQ was started by Kozo at Everyday Gurus. It is a way to honor other bloggers who inspire us with their writing and to quote something they said that touched our hearts and/ or inspired us.

EJ at Becoming a Writer wrote a post for Bloggers for Peace in November that definitely struck a chord for me.

EJ notes:

Nevertheless, hating my emotions is about as useful as hating my freckles, or hating my ear lobes.

I am learning to channel those fearful, doubting thoughts – and to value them. Without them, in a strange way, I’d never have written anything. Emotions are what make writers write, or painters paint, or singers sing.

I certainly would not have written my first novel without being pushed by my emotions. So ______ and ______, I forgive you and continue to pray for true healing for all involved. Mahalo for making my longtime dream of writing a novel come true, and mahalo for helping M. to finish songs she began writing long ago.

Beautiful Blog Quotation: BBQ Love for Kindness Blog 5

Kindness Blog is a relatively new blog established in April of 2013. The welcome note states,

“Just as the name suggests, this blog shares content featuring kindness in all its varied forms. Ranging from the simplest acts of charity performed out of sight, through to the grand gestures of kindness delivered on a larger scale, we are regularly publishing photos, videos, true-life-stories, personal reflections, poems, quotes and other various media that all have one special thing in common…KINDNESS :)”

Obviously, a blog that promotes sharing kindness needs to be promoted so I’m giving kindnessblog.com a taste of Kozo’s at Everyday Gurus BBQLUV by quoting them because I am grateful for all acts of kindness and that includes those who celebrate others for being kind. And no the welcome page is not the quote. This is:

Clearly they understand aloha.
