With the holiday season upon us, I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude to all of you who follow along with me, on this journey called blogging.
To my fellow bloggers/friends, you continue to inspire me every single day. Your willingness to open your lives & share your stories, your travels & your photos, enables all of us to grow, to dream & to give thought & consideration to things we may not have experienced in our own lives. The friendships formed through our mutual love of writing, are gifts to be treasured & treasure them I do.
To my fellow readers & followers, thank you from the very bottom of my heart for taking the time to read my posts, to share your thoughts, your opinions & your comments. There are times when I question whether I should continue to write, only to be told by one of you a post touched you in some way or at the very least, made you smile. Your love & encouragement is what motivates me to keep going.
As the new year approaches, my heartfelt wish is that we continue to seek ways to find peaceful solutions to the many issues we are facing in this world, to convey compassion & mutual respect for one another as human beings, for we are all in this together.
As you give thought to changes you may consider in the new year, I encourage you to be all that you can be. Be inspired & be inspiring. Believe in yourself & your abilities, for we are our own worst critics. Be kind to yourself & to those around you. Try something you may have never tried before, for in doing so, you may find a creative passion you never knew you had. Live your life in the best way possible, but most importantly, remember to love the life you are in.
I leave you with the insightful words of F. Scott Fitzgerald:
Wishing you love in your heart & joy in your soul.
