Somethin' to think about ...

A friend wrote a post today that I just.loved.

It is on a topic I have felt so strongly about since social media exploded over the past five or six years. 

I wrote a little bit about it last year. But Cara did such a better job than I did or ever could. 

Read it here

Some of my favorite excerpts:

"I thought how this is the fundamental problem with bragging. When we brag, we make others feel inadequate, incompetent, or envious. When we brag, HOW DOES IT MAKE OTHERS FEEL?"

AND

"I don't know about you, but I want people to feel comfortable around me and want to be around me. I don't want them to feel intimidated or inadequate. I want to build others up. Are there certain people in your life that you are just drawn to and want to be around? Now think about if they are braggers. Chances are, they are not. That's how I want to be. So I will renew my efforts at living a brag-free life. I'm sure I'll slip up. No one is perfect right? But don't worry, I'll be sure to let you all know how awesome I am at not bragging sometime soon. :)"

Happy Monday. :)

Hear Hear!
The thing that bugs me - if you think your husband/child/father is great - GO AND TELL HIM!!!! why are you telling all your high school non-friends on facebook? I'll venture why...because you are more interested in letting others listen to your crowing.
