In the world that we live in today, having global access to just about anyone in any place is very easy!
Thanks to technology I was able to find out about this wonderful #write31days challenge.
This experience has challenged me in a huge way, and I’m grateful.
Some days it was very hard to keep writing; whether it’s been a lack of motivation, words, or a brief “illness”, I’m still here!
In this home-stretch week, I want to re-introduce you to the Write 31 Days writers that are doing the thing too!
There are 10 categories, y’all and I’m looking forward to going back to reading once we’re wrapped up here. I’m sure they’ll be a blessing to you in days to come!
I want to shift gears and talk a little about the online (global) friendship community.
There is a place for those friendships!
That community is so very strong for me. I can probably say that it is for you, also?
Many of those friendships have been part of the vein of my existence.
Some faces I’ll never get to give the kiss of friendship to. Some I’ll never be able to physically hug.
But they have a piece of my heart that beats with compassion for them.
I think back to my first days of online interaction with other women. Those were in the form of websites with forums. It was the most organic of ways to connect.
Many of those friendships “transferred” over into the now popular social media sites.
It gets easy to get lost in the shuffle and algorithms of life, so we create special groups and pages to better love on each other.
Ministry partnerships, blogging guest posts, conferences for the sole purpose of meeting “irl” are a few of the beautiful things that have been birthed from the global friendship community.
Its where I meet some of my Stirrer Friends!
These global friendships help me in navigating my shoulder-to-shoulder friendships.
It teaches me how to slow down before responding, how to be more appreciative of what I DO have at home, how to be more generous with cultivation, how to give space, and how to step up.
