Three years seems such a short time. In some ways, I've lived many lifetimes in that short span. I've met incredibly gifted blog writers and formed beautiful friendships. The blogging world is vast, and I'm thrilled when I look at my blog stats and see that I have a truly global readership. That phenomenon never ceases to fascinate and amaze me, that people the world round follow my writing and look forward to my articles.
Writers write, just as musicians create music, artists create art, athletes achieve physical feats. Each of us seek to express ourselves in our unique manner. Secretly, we hope others will find our work pleasing and worthy of attention, yet many of us tend to squirm and wrestle with any large amount of recognition.
It's a curious thing, embracing a level of transparency with my writing. I've said it over and over in these past three years, that when I write something that really exposes my true self, when I write something that pushes the envelope on a spiritual level and uncovers sides of me that up until that point had remained safely hidden and protected....those are the articles that always receive the strongest and most positive responses. In becoming a blogger, I've learned to trust my gut instincts and bravely rip away layers of protection, walls that used to be high and thick. I have grown in friendship and in self-knowledge and I expect that both of these will continue to flourish.
I find a sense of personal joy with my writing here. Healing Morning is where I come to express random thoughts and concepts that don't fit into my business writing. It is here that I give free rein to whimsy, to laughter, to tears, to strength, to weakness and every emotion that exists. You who visit and take time to read my thoughts, and then go that extra step to leave wonderful comments - I wish I could find words to express how much I appreciate each of you. You add to the experience of my writing, adding your unique strokes of color and brightness to the canvas that I paint with my words.
To each of you:
"I honor the place within you where the entire Universe resides; I honor the place within you of love, of light, of truth, of peace; I honor the place within you, where, when you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us."Thank you for visiting. I look forward to celebrating many more years of writing, blogging and fellowship.
