Happy New Year Everyone!
As I start this New Year, I first wanted to say ‘Thank You’ to each and every one of you that read my blog. When I started this a little over 7 months ago I really had no idea where it would take me. Really I was at a point where I was not doing much in my life. At that time I knew my extreme Christmas decorating was not going to take place, so I had time on my hands to do something else. And with me retired and not working, I have time on my hands. So, what should I do? I have always had the idea of writing a book about my life, I felt for me that was important. But, deep inside I knew that would most likely not occur as I consider myself not a writer – I do not know where to start in writing a book.
So there I was last year with time on my hands and wondering what I should be doing with my time. I could start a blog about me and my life; and that is what I did. Would anyone read my blog about me and my life? Would anyone really care about those things in my life that brought me to here today and a new year? But I am not a writer; would people read and criticize my writing? Should I expose the true me and everything about me?
Well, here I am today a little over 7 months later; writing and posting every single day since the beginning of my blog. I love it!
I enjoy writing and the interactions with you my fellow bloggers. I appreciate you taking the time to read, ‘Like’ and comment my posts. I feel like I have friends and family here in the blogger world – this means a great deal to me.
I am learning to let go of the past and live in the current day. I am learning from your posts, your comments and from you. I am learning to be creative in my writing, learning from performing research of some post topics and learning that the world is a good place when you have a blog to share with others.
So my friends, my family – my hope for this year is you have 365 days filled will joy, happiness, fulfillment, surprises, expectations, goals and good health.
I truly am honored that you chose to follow my blog and read my posts – I truly am grateful for you.
