Too bad you’re not all closer, or I’d share!
One year Tomorrow.
My first entry was posted October 12th, 2012 – titled “Hello World”. It’s
slightly embarrasing amazing to read back and see how far this blog has come. Not just in reference to writing style – but also in life.
Where does the time go?
One year ago, I had no idea what was about to happen. How my writing would go from whimsical writing about “Cross-fit” (pfff – that was short-lived) and new adventures – to a form of therapy for me after we lost Newton.
I had no idea how many of you would speak up, message me, email me and lift my spirits by sharing your own stories and positivity.
I had no idea how much I needed an outlet like this.
I had no idea that I would dive head-first into a new community, that accepted me with open arms.
I had no idea I would have an online family.
One of you lovely people shared with me, some great advice. It’s advice that I found very helpful, so I hope you don’t mind me sharing.
“If you’re a writer – write. If you’re a painter – paint. If you’re a dancer – dance. Don’t ever stop doing what you love. It doesn’t have to be great – not even good. If it helps you during any point in your life express yourself? Get it out!”
So, in the spirit of Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend.
I really tried to find a way to clearly communicate how much I have appreciated all the support- however what it really comes down to is:
I truly want to thank you – all of you – for being so freakin’ (p)awesome.
PS – In the spirit of Canadian Thanksgiving, jump on board and celebrate! What are you thankful for?
