One year this blog has been alive. Crazy. It is time to look back to see how much the trees have grown. I actually want to just write about a few things that I have noticed since starting this fun blog.
1- I am WAY better at expressing my emotions in written form. I also have a lot more to say when I am writing it down and that is a good thing because I learn from those extra words that come out. As I look back at posts through this year, I am reminded of fun times, happy times, hard times, trying times, and the rotation continues through it all. But I am grateful that we have the opportunity to choose how to feel, no matter what time it is.
2- I really like mediating. That sounds so weird, but I do. I have to admit I have slacked for a couple of weeks, and I am feeling it. I had a great conversation the other night with my cute husband about how his mediation is totally different than mine, but that it bears the same benefits for him.
3- Sometimes I have nothing to say, and that is okay. I was going to blog every week for the unknown, but realized that that was too taxing on me and that I am okay with working through silence. Silence is a good thing and makes things more clear. I am grateful to be able to realize that being still is important.
4- I am always grateful for the responses that I receive. At first, I used to live for responses and see how many people read what I wrote, but I was missing the point. This blog, although it is out there with many people, my self-esteem is NOT dependent upon responses or likes or how many random people came to visit my blog.
5- I am of worth. One person does make a difference where ever their sphere is and that is all I need!
