This morning I got a notification from WordPress that this site is four years old. Wow in child terms we have graduated and we are going to Nursery two.
First of all I want to say a big thank you to everyone and anybody who has ever opened this page. To everyone who has ever commented. To everyone who has ever encouraged me to keep sharing through my own version of writing. To those who have been the inspiration behind the stories, to those who have submitted stories…to those who have ever emailed with an issue that we have been able to solve together, i say a mighty thank you.
This is emotional for me because my personality can be a bit flighty. I started this site like any one of my other ones. Just to document my thoughts and this particular one has grown bigger than me. My own personal growth has been outstanding- I still get bored quite easily and live in my own head a lot but notwithstanding.
I have grown from bitterness (what I felt was the biggest betrayal of the century) to indifference, to finding my own version of love, to digging further within myself and letting my compassionate side reflect. I have gone from being a paid employee to getting sacked to doing absolutely nothing to being chased for work by old clients.
Don’t get me wrong, I have had many days of struggle. I have had days of wondering if I should keep paying hosting fees. I have had moments of should I be posting that? Moments of how will I be judged when i post xyz? Moments of who wants to read what I am writing anyway? I have since learnt that everybody has a story to tell and it’s up to you to tell your own story for yourself and not give anyone else permission to do it on your behalf as they will distort it (intentionally or otherwise)!
I have gone from being a carefree 31 year old to an almost 35 year old mother of two who is obsessed with ensuring her children learn proper manners, morals and understanding that life has no limits. I think I am raising militant feminists😂 who know not to rely on their look or even see their looks as an asset.
I am tempted to say there will be 35 giveaways this month- but I cannot go and kill myself. I am working on 4 giveaways for this month. I will always list giveaways in Separate posts so folks can follow through the giveaway Tab at the top of the page.
I wish you a pleasant week and I hope the week brings all that you desire.
