I just wanted to take a second and thank all my readers for an incredible 2019. I wrote 65,863 words in 2019 with over 10,000 views. One of my stories was read in 52 different countries in 2019. Are you fucking kidding me???? I wanted to say from the bottom of my heart if you read 1 or all 65,863 words this year that I truly appreciate it. The numbers are truly incredible and something I never envisioned at all.
My stories or feelings are unique in the fact that they are mine. They are how I see the world. I write how I feel, as best as I can in that moment, and I misspell a lot of words, because lots of times I’m scared if I stop typing I will lose whatever small inspiration I have. I laugh a little, I cry a lot, and hopefully I am growing in whatever way I can.
This blog is my version of therapy. I try hard to be as open and honest as I can with my words. Of course, my life isn’t as perfect as it may sound in my stories. Just as yours isn’t as perfect as your instagram makes it look. I’m incredibly flawed. But, seeing all the love and the views from my stories I have learned that maybe we aren’t all that different. While we all live in our own little bubbles, we have lots of shared experiences in this crazy life we lead.
I get so much from writing that it honestly doesn’t seem real when someone I have never met comments on a story or even when someone in my tribe gets a little laugh or tear from one of my dumb stories. But, if I am being honest, my biggest reward is when one of my daughters brings her computer out to me and asks me to proofread something she wrote for school because she respects my opinion on writing. As you know if you read any of my stories, my kids are my world, so when one of them asks for my help it humbles me in the best way possible. It’s in those moments I can truly appreciate what writing has brought into my life.
Thank you for all the love and support throughout the year. I hope that I was able to make you feel something. I hope I was able to inspire you in some small way. I hope you feel as lucky as I do with your own tribe.
