I knew my blogaversary was coming. This 4 year mark of writing, nay masterminding, this blog feels a little heavy. I just read that many blogs don’t make it past their 8th month. I remember that moment of doubt wondering if I wrote a blog in the woods, was anyone reading it? And I remember my drive to improve my writing overcame that doubt. And I would go on to improve my photography as well as my writing. Practice.
There’s definitely so much I’ve wished I could have made happen on my blog before now. Hard to watch all those who began blogging at the same time gaining such momentum while I feel like I’m at a stand still.
Yet it would be unfair for me to compare my blog to theirs. My work has not been just about blogging but about my self-discovery and self-esteem building. Rediscovering what it is that makes me me and figuring out how I want to purposefully share my mad creative and mentoring skills with the larger world. Thanks to the blog, I had something to spur that progress on.
Because I can tell you that I never would have come as far as I have with my esteem work if I hadn’t been actively blogging. This blog has given me the excuse and the opportunity to reach out and ask questions. To make myself accountable to challenges I may not have been motivated to take on. And all of this, plus the incredible connections to real people all over the world, has made me into a better happier less neurotic human being. As well as a better parent and creative dynamo.
So here’s to listening to your inner voice and staying true to it. Here’s to being patient with the fact that stuff takes as long as it bloody well takes. And here’s to accountability and telling the truth. And to Kindness always, to yourself and others.
