And There Were Eleven Days Until Christmas...

"Merry Christmas" in Eleven Languages:
Irish - Nollaig Shona!
Spanish - ¡Feliz Navidad!
French - Joyeux Noël!
Greek - καλά χριστούγεννα!
Chinese - 圣诞快乐!
Hungarian - Vidám karácsony!
Dutch - Prettige kerstdagen!
Norwegian - Glædelig jul!
Italian - Buon Natale!
Polish - Wesołych Świąt!
Elvish - Ná merye i turuhalmeri! {Not sure how this one is accurate...I Googled it.}
Guys, something weird is happening. Something, really, really, really weird. And I don't even mean that in a funny way. It's really strange.

You know that blogger that I hate? That blogger I despise with every bone in my body? That blogger that ripped me off? That blogger I would applaud for keeling over and quitting? That blogger I wish everyone would universally hate? The blogger whose blog I read faithfully even though it monumentally pisses me off? You know that one?


As I said, I read this person's blog like a complete psycho, an OCD lunatic. I check it EVERY. DAY and hate it more all the time. {This has to be unhealthy.}

But yesterday something weird happened:

The white-hot hatred and revulsion fell away.

It actually crumbled, leaving me blinking at the computer screen like a second-grader with dust in her eyes. It was like a crumbly brick wall actually pelted down around me. It was like I could literally hear it and feel it. It was really, really weird.

And all the sudden, I LIKED this person. I felt for them. I respected them. I wanted to interact with them, read the blog, and care about them as a person. I commented from my heart.

I have no idea where the 180 change came from. I have no real reason to hate this blogger any less, but I do. I don't hate him/her at all now.

I think it's God. He's been giving me all kinds of revelations and mental shifts lately. It's really weird, and really cool.

But yeah. I don't hate this person anymore. I expected the absence of abhorrence to feel like a void, but it doesn't. It feels like a burden lifted. How...weird.
