ME, MY JOURNAL AND I

People say that you can post whatever you like in your own journal, well these are my thoughts recently so it's better that they stay here on my journal. Why do i feel that i am drifting away from the Pros community, probably because i am drifting away from the Pros community. I feel like my journal is my little island and i'm waving to you from off shore. Well here i am waving to you again, i just can't seem to motivate myself into doing anything other than staying where i feel safe and out of reach.




Maybe at some point that may change but for now there is me, the lads and my safe guard which is my journal.

But you *are* the Pros community! Live journal is an important part of fandom and that's what you use your journal for. I'm not sure who or where this community is which you feel you're drifing away from - does it exist any more, if it ever did?

And those pictures are good, particularly the one of Doyle looking up so sweetly!

I mean the community other than my journal ,like the safe house or box of tricks etc... I never really post at these places.

I can't seem to branch any further....yes these images are beautiful.

*waving back to you*

For me you are a part of the Pros community either if you post only in your journal or in any of the others. Look at me, I don't post so much wonderful images like you do and if you feel uncomfortable about The Safehouse or any other journal it is okay.

I'm always happy to see your images and I'm happy when you like what I did. I think everyone should do what she likes and where she feels safe.

And the images you used here are really nice. :-)

thankyou, i love to look at your images, this is just a feeling of mine at the moment. I used to love seeing the lads on other sites but i tend to stay where it i feel safe and at the moment that is my journal, that is why i feel i am drifting away from these other places of the pros community.

Waves to you and yes these images are beautiful.

You should do whatever it is that makes you happy. Fandom should be exactly that "happy" place--in whatever way it works best for you. For some, that means lots of engagement in lots of different places, for others it means writing stories for themselves that they never share. Both are valid, of course. So, yes, your journal is for you, your lads--and a few friends who deeply appreciate visiting that place with you! I'm going through some busy, rough times at work just now, so having a fly-by moment to gaze upon the lads is making me very happy, and keeping me going, to be honest. Thank you!

These are lovely photos--among my favorites!

well at the moment my happy place is here on my journal. I used to love discussing the lads on such sites as The Safehouse but now i wouldn't dream of getting involved and that is where my feeling of drifting away is coming from.I'm glad the sight of the lads gave you a boost and i hope that your busy schedule relents soon.

Waves to you and thankyou.

waves to you..,and thanyou.

You do a lot for the Pros community and I appreciate it. Do what makes you happy, that's my motto. Fandom should be your happy place. When it's not, well, you have to do what's best for you.

Thankyou and i am happy even if i don't sound it at the moment, it's just a feeling that i have, i used to love visiting different sites, discussing the lads and being involved in the pros community, now i only feel safe when i'm here on my journal and that is why i feel like i'm drifting at the moment. I wouldn't dream of getting involved in any of the challenges nor would i get involved in any discussions, so yeah i would say i am definitely drifting away at this present time.

Thankyou and gives you a big wave.

I dunno, I'd say you're a key part of Pros... and you have good stories and all those excellent pictures to boot!

Do what you want; we all celebrate the lads in different ways. And it's all good. ;-)

Thankyou and i am happy honestly but only in one place at the moment which is on my journal. I used to love being involved in different projects or discussions on the lads but not any more which is where my feeling of drifting away is coming from. I'm glad that you are still enjoying the pics and thankyou for getting in touch.

Waves to you from my journal.

Oh you chose a couple of beauties, here! That's definitely a favourite Bodie pic of mine! *le sigh*

I don't think I could put it better than those above: tailor your Lj and online participation to best fit your needs. ..And yes, it should always be your happy place. ♥

Thankyou, yes these are beautiful images of the lads especially the Lewis one which is a favourite of mine too.

At the moment i am only comfortable with posting on my journal. I used to love being involved in all the projects and discussions but now i wouldn't dream of getting involved in such things and this is why i feel i am drifting away.

Thankyou for getting in touch and gives you a wave.

I think everybody who shares a love of B&D and especially everyone who shares comments and stories and pictures is part of the Pros community - I very much agree with msmoat! These two photos are lovely, they look so approachable especially LC. Thank you so much for sharing all your wonderful images with lucky us!

I agree, I do really but the only place that I really feel comfortable leaving my postings is here on my journal. I used to love discussing the lads or joining in with different projects but not at the moment and this is why I get the feeling of drifting on by.

Gives you a wave and a thankyou.

Well, you should do exactly as you wish, and you're entitled to do it and feel safe. Fandom, after all, is our fabricated 'happy place', and nobody can take that from you.

Your journal and your friends are your own community, and we appreciate your posts very much :D

i am happy here on my journal it's the one place that i feel most comfortable. i used to love having a discussion on the lads at the safehouse etc but at the moment i feel liie i am gradually drifting away and can no longer motivate myself to be involved and that feeling has been with me for some time now.

i am still here and waving madly.

I am a newbie, my first year is just over and you have been an important part of it. You belong to my pros community, wherever your posts are. Feeling safe is necessary, understandable and not always easy. Do what you want to do and nothing else.

Forgotten, nice images of our lads. They are radiating calmness, don't they ?

Classic lads :0)

The fan on my computer keeps whirring away, I suspect it's on its last legs. According to the manual, this may be due to overwork - it suggests I look for anything that may have caused overheating.

Hmmm...Now just what have I been looking at lately, which might have caused that...?

You're welcome in my journal anytime - and I love visiting yours. If it is an island, it's a very lovely one.

Jan. 27th, 2018 11:27 am (UTC)
yes they are, beautiful lads.

I am sorry to hear about your computer problems and i hope that everything resolves itself for you.

I just feel like my journal is my island at the moment and can't seem to motivate myself into posting elsewhere. My safety net is my journal and that gives me a feeling of drifting away from the community.

i am here and waving at you.(thankyou and you know the invitation to visit my journal is always welcome too)

Thai is lovely to know and i'm glad that you enjoy visiting my journal and at the moment i feel more comfortable while posting here.

These are beautiful images of the lads especially the Lewis one *g*

Thankyou and sending you a wave

Look at those lovely men, they look gorgeous and approachable, and, well, lovely :)
You post wherever you feel most comfortable and at ease. Your contributions to the fandom are always welcome, wherever they are! 😊

i'm afraid that the feeling of drifting is still with me and the urge to join in with anything has for the moment come to a stand still. My journal is still my comfort spot and i can't see that changing any time soon.

Yes the lads do look lovely here.

Thankyou and please accept a wave from me.
