A Bouquet for Pearls - share your appreciation for other members

Every now and then, members share a beautiful Pearl of Wisdom. How often do you think to yourself; "OMG that's great! I wish everyone could see this."

Presenting someone with a bunch of flowers is a generous way of acknowledging their insightful words.

I hope this thread stays active through members giving out praise regularly to people they feel deserving, and therefore keep generosity of spirit alive within the pages of BeyondBlue Forum.

My bunch of Red Roses (my choice) goes to Wishful for the following sentence;

  • 'Personally, I see no reason to be praised in me, but I'm learning that seeing through the eyes of others can be more accurate!!'

I so hear you Wishful. Just beautiful...

  1. Try to keep your leading comments short to focus on 'their' words.
  2. Choose specific flowers (or a gift if you like) to present to them.
  3. Sign off respectfully and sincerely.

I hope this takes off...

Spreading the love...Sara

Dear Tayla~

I appreciate you as a person and I genuinely look forward to you posts in my thread (Croix Parler).


I rather suspect you must have a mischievous side in you as you like Sir Bernard Wooley (as do I) and we do share similar tastes in entertainment.


It does take a lot of time to become used to hte Forum and it is a  fact some people have become more confident here and may even get more replies, however by and large we are all pretty equal.


Personally I'm very glad you did speak up, if you had not I would have put your quiet ways just down to shyness - which would have been a mistake on my part.


So thank you, I now know you a little better and think that's great.


I"m looking forward ot you next post, and if I don't reply quickly it only means I'm lost elswhere on the Forum:)




well, i did try to comment back but it wouldn't work. i do have my own threads but they don't show up when i comment on them as new. i tried making a new one but it wouldn't let me. i have apologised & sincerely mean it. i guess i won't repeat myself with my apologies & what i've already said in my previous comment about just feeling jealous, not trying to make anyone feel bad. i hope everyone can forgive me & we can move on as i just keep overthinking & regretting it.

Dear Tayla~

If you don't mind me mentioning it I'd suggest you are overthinking things. I've a similar tendency - though it less nowadays thank goodness - and will firstly believe myself at fault and then my mind will not let it go, a thoroughly unpleasant ongoing experience.


You might like chat about the below in Croix Parler).


So what are Nick, Oscar and Claude up to this week?


Incidentally I looked up Derek Fowlds in Wikipedia - his photo is unrecognizable!






hi Croix. yeah i guess i am overthinking things. i will reply to what you just wrote on your thread as it's more appropriate there.
