Wow, 4 Years!
When I first thought about starting a blog I wasn’t entirely sure what it would be or where it would take me. I guess that was part of the appeal. Writing for me was always more of a personal thing; a way to organize my thoughts, work out a problem I was having, or the best way I knew to record exactly what I was feeling at any given moment. When I was younger I kept diaries and when I look back on them today I’m reminded of the girl I was and can see how much I’ve grown. Life is constantly changing and moving ahead with such speed that these words have become important to me, frozen in time so I can revisit certain times in my life to never forget where I’ve been, what I’ve done and how I’ve continued on.
I entertained the idea of writing a blog long before I actually started it. I needed a creative outlet but I wasn’t entirely sure if I wanted to open myself up to the world. Up until this blog, things that I wrote concerning me and my personal opinions were always kept under lock and key (literally!). I finely convinced myself that it was time to open myself up and develop something that I love to do ~ write. I would have complete control over what I wanted to write and how much I wanted to share and with that final nudge from myself, I bit the bullet and signed up for a blog. So much has happened since my first blog post and although there are times I find it difficult to write, when I’m ready it’s always there, like a loyal friend.
I never thought about or worried how many people would read or take interest in my little corner of cyber-space. But, it continues to warm my heart that people take the time to read my blog.
Thank you to everyone who continues to follow along with me on this journey.
