Whether you purposely clicked on my blog just now, or whether you fell down a rabbit hole and ended up here, or even if you’re just scrolling around as a means of procrastination or out of sheer boredom…I just want to say thank you.
It’s a great feeling to know that whenever I get a sudden, random urge to let out my innermost thoughts and feelings, I have a platform that’s ready and waiting for me to start typing and hit ‘publish’. This blog is my safe place and it has been for almost seven years now! 😮
But as they say, a house (or a blog) is just four walls and a roof, a home is what’s made up of everything and everyone inside. And this blog would be nothing without you dear reader; you make it feel like home.
With all of the relationships we hold in our day-to-day lives, there comes a certain level of expectation that said person must care about us, support us, listen to us etc, that’s just how it goes, that’s what they signed up for! But what’s special about this blogger-reader bond is that you don’t actually know me. You don’t owe me anything. I’m a complete stranger to you, yet you’ve taken time out of your day to listen to what I have to say. Trust me when I say that feeling is amazing.
When you comment and say that I made you smile with my words, or that I motivated you to take action, or to think about something from a different point of view, or even when you can just relate to something I’ve shared because you’ve been there too, it means the absolute world to me.
We spend our entire lives seeking out our purpose, where we fit in this big bad world and what our small part is to play. I know that I have a long way to go before I can say I’m truly, actively fulfilling my purpose, but I do know that this blog is a good starting point.
I’m proud of it. Not just of the content that I’ve created, but of the community that’s grown out of it. It warms my heart seeing familiar names liking and commenting on my posts, seven years in and some of you have started to feel like my virtual family!
So apologies for the soppiness, but I mean every word of it! It’s not even my blogiversary, I just woke up today feeling very blessed and grateful so I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart and I hope you’ll continue to follow me on this crazy E.W.S. journey that we’ve embarked upon. 😛
