Hi guys!….gals too! Now that we got that out the way, let’s go over some quick housekeeping rules and or tips: This blog….right here…is comprised of my thoughts and how I feel. Some of you will be able to relate, some of you won’t. Then some of you may not read past this part. And that’s okay!
I was literally sitting at my desk eating hot cakes and sausage scrolling Twitter and Instagram. IG was still full of pics of mom’s and the usual Monday motivational posts. Twitter on the other hand, was showing the exit of the third shift tweeters and the first shift tweeters’ entrance. I couldn’t help but recognize majority of the posts and tweets I was seeing were those of women praising their children. A lightbulb went off and I asked, do people praise their mate/husband/significant other/bae as much as they praise their children?
I, again, will say I do not have any children at this current time. However, I believe children are the best miracles that walk this Earth. I mean, are you aware of how challenging it is to bring a whole person into this world?! Its incredible! I can’t wait to experience this one day. Until then, I don’t mind waiting.
We are all familiar with the #MCM and #WCW pics and posts. How many of those are actually genuine? I’m not talking the celebrity posts where you’re all hashtag friendly. I’m talking about those sincere posts where you see the person responsible for those kids or happiness one may be experiencing being praised. I’ll give you a minute to think.
I know a person, married with children, who only praises her children. I’ve never once heard her say anything praise worthy of her husband. I just can’t understand how some of us fail to give credit to other people. I’m sure she didn’t make those babies by herself.
Now, to y’all with baes, boyfriends, or men, have you told him ‘thank you?’ Have you posted about that significant other saying you appreciate them for giving you butterflies? Making you smile, or just simply being there. If you’re single, I know you have a best friend or something. Everybody has somebody.
But you know what? In this day and age, we don’t give props, praises, credit, or anything to others where it may be due. And given social media has a bigger influence in daily lives, many won’t or don’t post. And that’s fine. It can be a quick phone call of even a text.
So, in conclusion….That sounded real professional, didn’t it?
The moral of the story is, a man who sleeps on the floor can’t fall out of bed.
Nah, for real, let’s look to those who have helped us obtain that sprout of happiness, whether it’s children, a blushing face, or love on Cloud 9 and appreciate them, too.
