I just realized I had my website set to another person’s website. Novice Blogger Award goes to me! It’s all situated now 🙂
I would like to say “Thank you!” to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday. I appreciate all of the well wishes and hope for a better upcoming year! My wish is to make every year better than the last and just forget ahead for a brighter future. I really did not do anything special or spectacular. Actually, I had a doctor’s appointment, cried, and spent the rest of the night hanging out with my parents. Party.Animal. I’ll explain the crying at a later time. Let’s just say… Here we go again. Brighter future, brighter future… Must keep repeating!
One thing I love about blogging is the feedback you get from other bloggers. The connection. The friendships. The “support”. I put “support” in quotes because sometimes you can tell the genuine vs. the not so genuine. I’m sure you can tell the difference between those who completely read your blog and care to get to know you versus the reader who skims and just wants to make a comment in hopes to get more “readers”.
With this said, I know I created a “raw truth” post a couple of weeks ago. I did re-start my blog in hopes to create more relationships and friendships with complete strangers. Odd? Sort of. But I believe if people can relate to you and show genuine support in everything you do – whether it’s trying a new fitness class to what you ate at 2:34 PM a certain day – friendships are inevitable to form. There are some blogs I started reading a long time ago and I did not seem to “click” with the blogger, but after a few posts, I realized I really could relate to the person more than I thought was possible. I laughed, I rolled my eyes, and I found myself saying aloud, “Oh my God, I did the same exact thing. I’m not the only one!”
It’s that moment. The moment you realize what you did is A-Okay. It’s normal. You’re not the only one… This is what makes me love blogging. I’m really glad I’m back at it and I hope to just continue this blog with the new year ahead of me.
