One Year Blogging

A few weeks ago, I marked my one year anniversary blogging.  I’ve been busy, but I couldn’t let the accomplishment go by with out acknowledging this milestone.  I have been blogging for a little more than a year.  WOW!

I remember thinking about starting a blog, but was so intimidated by the idea of having a blog. I had no expectations when I started, and I’m learning as I go.  There were so any great blogs, and I didn’t have any goals of being the next great blog.  I just wanted to a little space of my own.  Having a small following wasn’t even something I considered, but now consider it a bonus.

What I’ve gotten in this one year of blogging is finding other great bloggers, so many of them new like me.  The feedback I have received has been really encouraging. Something I didn’t expect, but I’ve been really appreciative of.

I’ve really enjoyed this little space I’ve created for myself, and appreciative to everyone who has read, liked, and commented.

So I say Happy Anniversary to this blog, and look forward to more blogging.

Goals Delayed

goals

I saw this on Facebook, and all I could think was “this is so me”.  I’m sure I wasn’t the only one.  We have a list of goals, we didn’t accomplish them.  So we continue to add them to the new list of goals that we’ve created for ourselves.  Before you know it, nothing was accomplished.

While the quote struck close to me, It didn’t make me feel like a failure.  After sitting on it for a few days, I felt determined.  I felt determined because I set each goal for a reason.  These weren’t things I pulled out of the air.

I’m going to go back to the heart of my goals.  Life can throw many things in our way, and we may forget our purpose.  Once I get back in touch with the heart of my goals, my motivation and drive will flow easily.  I’m sure of it.
