I just spent some time Googling myself…somehow that doesn’t sound quite wholesome…does it? Hmmm…
I really wanted to see if the internet spiders had picked up my blog and how hard it would be for someone to find it just by doing a search…but I found out so much more…for instance did you know that…on April 26, 2010 I was on a waiting list for a hike with a Meetup group that I belong to? No? Well you would have if you had Googled Jane Carroll Cowart.
There were other references to me…comments I’ve posted…that kind of thing…of course Bertha-Size Your Life was listed…and I did find the blog on page four of that search…page one when searched by Life According to Jane…
But I just kept going back to that Meetup waiting list…how could something so obscure be significant enough to be on page two of a search of my name?
Bertha says that’s the way it is in life as well…quite often it’s the obscure things that we do…that we don’t even notice…that are meaningful and memorable to others…
I think back to comments I’ve had from patients…how much something I did meant to them…things I don’t even remember…some tiny act of kindness…touched their lives…
Now…I have to ask myself (says Bertha)…how many times is the reverse true…how many times have I hurt another by a random act of indifference…or rudeness? I really don’t want to think about it…but Bertha says I have to…so I’m off to contemplation time…I think it’s her version of time-out…geez…
Bertha’s advice for the day…have fun…Google yourself…you just might be surprised by what you find!
