WE DID IT! WE DID IT!
2 years ago, I registered on WordPress and decided to jump into blogging with both feet. Then, once I jumped in, I had no idea how to proceed and the cold water got the best of me. I decided to jump out and watch from the bank until I learned what to do.
But then, the learning comes from the doing, not from the watching. So, I decided to try again with the intention of “sink or swim.” At times, this approach has served me well and others, not so well! But, one day at a time, I am getting there, I think!
When we started this journey together, I just picked writing as an hobby and it was something I really wanted to do because I just found out that I could actually write. Sometimes I go back and read those posts that I published two years ago, and I cringe a little — but they show where we’ve been, and I’m excited to see where we’ll go next.
You have been my best worst idea over these past two years. We’ve had our ups and downs, that’s for sure. Sometimes, inspiration strikes me like a lightning bolt and I have to write my ideas down right away. Other times, it takes every ounce of willpower I have to write a sentence. There have been times when we’ve had to spend some time apart, too, for the sake of my sanity. But you’ve always been there, waiting patiently for me to return.
And I do come back. It’s hard to stay away for too long, because once my head’s back on straight and my life is in some kind of order, the ideas start coming again, and I have to write them down. I’ll explode if I don’t. And you’re always there, ready to hear the things I have to say. You’re a great listener.
I’m at another point in my life where things are going to be changing. I don’t know what after school life has in store for us yet. Whatever it is, I know that you’ll be with me, ready to listen to my stories.
So happy birthday, blog of mine. I’m glad you exist.
Alright, that is out of the way. I will take this opportunity to acknowledge all of you wonderful, kind, compassionate, encouraging, creative, talented bloggers, that I have been blessed to cross paths with. Thank you! Thank you for being who you are, and encouraging me by visiting over the years. It made me think about friendship and the willingness to go through hard times together. We will keep moving right along, being who we are and shining our light.
This blog has come a long way since I first started it two years ago. That’s not really because of me, it’s because I have fantastic readers who encourage me. Knowing that there are people out there following my blog, reading my posts, and sharing their own thoughts in the comments is what’s really made this experience special. It means a lot to me that you have made my writing a part of your life. I’m so thankful for you too!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you my amazing readers! We have more years to go. So, stick with me please and let’s keep this journey going. I love you ❤️❤️.
