Things they say and never do!
- I’m going to step up and be better
- I’m going to start calling
- I’m going to visit
- I’m going too make up for all the years I missed
- I love you all and want to show it more
I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I,………. followed by a multitude of buts!
Say less and do more is the motto that I live by. I never tell people what is coming next, I just do it. If I want to make changes in my life, I never send out an announcement; I just do it.
If you want situations to be fixed or changed in your life, then change them. Making excuses for not being present is not okay. Not knowing who your grandkids are is not okay. Using social media as a meeting place is pathetic. Then have the nerve to write how proud you are of them and how much you love them, but your grandkids can count on one hand how many times you’ve called them.
Not even a;
How was your school year?
How are you doing?
Is everything okay in your world?
Nothing!!! And not ever.
If anyone reading this takes their grandchildren or children for granted, I hope and pray that you take the proper steps to change. Reevaluate who’s important in your life and who isn’t of importance. Take this time to pick up the phone and hear your “loved ones” voice.
Using social media platforms to confess your love isn’t the way to go unless you back it up with action. If someone reads your love confession and then says, “I didn’t know they liked me,” that’s a problem!
Say less and do more!
You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

You know, Bella . . . I’m not on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp, or any of the other flashy social media apps a lot of people flock to. The day I left Facebook (for the second time) five years ago, it let me know who was important to me and to whom I was important to. I can count on one hand the people who keep in touch with me and who I contact from Facebook since I left; family included. This resonates so much.

To a great many people, I’m probably dead since I don’t gather around the social media campfires like they do . . . and really, I’ve had to get used to that. So many people depend on the easy way out of life versus true connection and involvement. It makes my heart ache.
It’s all so phony! If I would delete if I didn’t have so many aunties that are 75 and older that want to see pics of my kiddos.
I’ll usually post something once a month or every other month. But Instagram for me is WordPress, I connect with like minded people and have fun.
And your right people think your dead or living a overly private life and that’s how I like it. No one needs to know all your business.
You said it right, “the easy way out”!
BAM!!! Mic drop! 🎤🎤🎤

This is so cool. And those who know you and how you go about doing things must be out of their skin jumping because they can expect something but know nothing.
Thank you!!!!! I like to move quiet 😂 not a huge attention seeker. Just want to be happy
LOLLLLZZZ….ok i take you word on that.
Attention seeker…love that little phrase.
Well it’s really nice to know this side of you.
You said it perfectly, I agree with you!! I use social media but I absolutely value genuine personal connections – on or off.
Me too!!!!!! I appreciate genuine people so much ♥️
