Looking For Some Validation?

Sorry to leave the party blog up so long without any new posts but Ms. Techie here inadvertently linked my BLOG address and not the PARTY post address. Ah, what 3a.m. will do for you. So, bear with me if you see it post again this week. Newcomers still need to find their way around.

In all my partying, I came across a new blog I decided to follow called Modern Mom Musings. Check her out. I think you'll like her, too. She said, "Someone who knows I'm not on Facebook right now (she gave it up for Lent!) shot this link my way." And I loved it.

And I wanted to watch because we bloggers have this mutual validation club going. And sometimes I question it. Is it good? Am I needy? Should I get therapy and/or medicine? Yes, yes, and that's pointless because no one is talented enough to cure me, and meds and I don't play well together.

Besides the reality is, I LOVE validating people. And obviously you do, too. Look how much we're hangin' out together and just read all the lovely things you say.

A little warning: there are a few bad words from one guy who gets mad. Not BIG bad words but they are there. Yes, I know we hear them everyday and everywhere. But this would be rated PG if you were going to a movie. And I thought you should know. So without further ado.....here is "Validation."

  12. Hopped over to the Mom Musings link ...and enduing up staying there way too long. You know, for me, Life is what happens while I read the blog world ..or should I say, "sleep" SHOULD be happening. I would add mom musings, but I just don't have the time ...Gosh (song in my head)... "If I could save time in a bottle...".
    I mean, I read fast, but I don't type that well. So, if I started following someone else, I'm going to want to say SOMEthing... you see, I'm rambling ...am I SAYING anything?!?!
    Ohhh ...neat little flick re: validation. I do think kindness, for the most part, is contagious- kind of like yawns.

  13. I just stopped by, blog hopping as part of UBP 2009. It is very nice to meet you. I have a blog at www.superfunmama.blogspot.com; It's a toddler learning blog. I'd love to have you for a visit! I am loving UBP! Have a magical day. I have a goal of trying to visit 150 blogs per day, whew! Let's hope the little one takes long naps for the next few days.

  14. What's this? What's This? Too much praise for a pondering tortoise...I will hurry to hide in my shell...You, my dear funny friend, not only possess a witty way with words, and a ready pen...but YOU also are a PERSONALITY!!!!!! You were born for the stage!!!! I think you missed your calling...comedienne should be added to your resume. The rest of us sit back and enjoy!!!!! I thank God for the blog...without it, I never would have met YOU! Have a wonderful day, you, junky, you! Lovin' ya! Janine

  16. Oh, I love TJ Thyne - he's such a great actor and this is such a great clip!! It made me smile. :)

  17. I think I'll spend the day trying to respond to all the kind comments, you, Shakespeare, you! No time to celebrate...Must make time to visit all my new friends...but I do think my mention in POTD has created much ado about my "nothing" :-)I think the stage belongs to you and all the rest of the master bloggers I've been privileged to meet! Love to you!

  18. Had I realized the video was going to be 15 minutes long, I'd probably not have taken the time to watch it. I'm so glad I didn't notict that, as I LOVED the video!

  23. I've seen this and it made me cry. I know I'm a sap :)

  24. Okay it might be the pregnancy hormones talking here, but that video made me cry! It was SO SWEET~and the main girl and guy remind me of Hubby and I.

    Also-you're so right about the blogger circle of validation thing! I LOVE it when people visit my blog and comment, but I also make it a point to respond to all of my comments and visit every commenter's blog--I find a lot of fun people like that :)

    The circle of neediness continues.
