Today 1 year ago, my post started with the following –
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?
In today’s post, I write the following –
Happy 2017 Everyone!
The first day of 2016, I had no knowledge of what that year would bring.
The first day of 2017, I have some knowledge of what this year will bring.
I never write words that are not the truth and I never pretend to be something I am not.
This blog, my blog is about me and my life; my thinking, my emotions, my feelings, my experiences, and events that shape me.
I am privileged to have a platform to write and express me.
I am privileged to have a platform to read and comprehend you.
I write often ‘I appreciate you’, ‘Happy Day’ in posts and comments.
I do not have other words to describe my feelings for you who read my posts.
I will never have words that exactly describe my feelings for the support I receive here.
My wish is each of you have a year full happiness and whatever the journey you are on, that you never give up hope.
I will continue to write and post and I certainly will never give up hope.
I appreciate you, truly I do – happy year my friends.
