There have been a lot of posts floating around as of late regarding blogging, readers, comments and the balance of it all.
I won't reiterate all the discussion. But here are some stellar reads:
I really try to keep it real here.
Life isn't always days at the lake and sunshine and laughter.
Sometimes it's real.
There's something to be said for being able to share that freely.
With people I've never met.
But I feel like I know some of them better than myself.
And so I'm thankful.
For having someone halfway across the world send me an email with a perfectly sarcastic comment to make my day that much brighter.
For someone a few states away to send me the sweetest snail mail card.
For someone two hours away to send me the most-needed pick me up package.
For anyone to leave an uplifting comment or tweet.
Right when I need it most.
I never asked for anyone to do this.
I never expected anyone to.
I am absolutely amazed by the friends I've made through blogging.
dating friendship at its best.
You guys are the bees knees.
Even though I wasn't aware that bees even had knees.
And onto something equally as amazing and vague.
I had some pretty steep New Year's Resolutions.
I've been chasing a dream for a couple years.
And recently realized I was chasing the wrong dream.
But that's okay. It's okay to get lost now and then. To follow something blindly.
It always leads to something better.
Finding your passion in life isn't easy.
And when you do find it, it can be terrifying.
Terrifying or not, I figured out what I want to do with my life.
I suppose [vaguely] putting this on the internet is my way of holding myself accountable.
So that's it.
I'll keep you posted.
