After blogging for little more than two months I have learned a lot more about myself as a person. My original reason for blogging was to release my emotions, find a way to heal the pain I was experiencing not only from relationships but the current stress in my life. I didn’t expect to have many follow me, that was not my original intent. I shared some of my original material with one of my closest friends and she encouraged me to do it and gave me some pointers. I shared my site with a few close friends and they followed me, but most of all they encouraged me to keep writing. They wanted more!
I then started reading other blogs and was, and still am, in awe, of the creativity and originality that exists out there. It is amazing not only what people share, but how they put their thoughts and experiences into original stories, poems, words. As I always say, I am a small fish in a large sea of creativity.
Little did I know that writing for a creative purpose instead of a practical one, as I do in my current job, would be so rewarding. I am happy and thankful that I listened to my friend who encouraged me to do this. She is a fantastic writer. Most of all I am thankful to me, that I took that leap and put my feelings and thoughts out there. Writing is both healing and rewarding, but most of all it has unleashed a part of me that I did not realize existed and that is what I am most thankful for.
