Happy Birthday to Me!
In my time here I have learned a lot about myself through my writing, and through my interactions with my amazing readers. I’ve learned that it is fun to be a little more spontaneous with my writing – to edit less and share more – and I have learned that while my dark days are well behind me, revisiting them through the words can still be a little difficult at times, but that it is – as so many things are in this life – highly therapeutic. I have learned that my amazing readers are willing to put up with the eternal, emotional roller coaster I seem to want to put them on, and that – when I intentionally write to share – I have a never ending supply of inspiration. I have learned that I know absolutely nothing about my own writing a times – but I’m oddly okay with this – and that spending my early afternoons reading the many brilliant and often inspiring blog posts of other’s is highly preferable to reading the news; on that note, I’m a little behind on current events… oops! I’ve also learned that when I start waking up too early (and allowing myself way too little time to sleep) just so that I have time to stick to all of my writing goals, I quickly begin transforming into a zombie that’s even more emotionally driven than normal – ya, I don’t think I’ll be doing that much more – and my writing does suffer some. Consider yourselves blessed that I have not posted a great deal of my poetry and musings from the past week.
In my time here I have met some incredible people and been allowed a peek into the minds of many great thinkers. I have become addicted; you’re my own personal heroin; to a few of you – not just as writers but in some cases as wonderful new friends… know that my life is enriched by having you in it; I think you know who you are.
I want to thank each and every single one of my beautiful readers; you are helping me to reach towards personal goals, even if you don’t realize how that may be. I adore each of you, and I will be eternally in your debt.
To sum it up; I thank you, I adore you, I appreciate you, and I am ever so humbled by your support.
