Sometimes I feel like what I do here can be about numbers. I can see the number of people who like my Facebook page, how many come to this website daily, and how many like the blog posts I write. Although I create my website from my own experiences, I share my stories and journey for others, with the intention that it serves as a light on the path of someone who feels they are wandering around in darkness.
I really don't want to feel like I'm serving a number, but people, so today I'm just going to take a moment and say hello! Today I am reminding myself that someone real, someone important, someone walking their own path full of obstacles and highs and lows, is going to read this. I know sometimes we hesitate to send a message because we don't want to intrude or take up a person's time, but I am always excited and honored when one of my website visitors takes the time to message me. If you ever get the urge to comment or send a message and say hello please do!
People who connect with me here and on my page are like guests in my home, they've come for a reason, because of a feeling that we're spiritually connected, almost like a soul family, and that we're not doing this alone. We may never meet in person, but we have experiences, feelings and dreams that connect us. Knowing people come and share in this experience with me is something I feel gratitude for every day. When you come to my website there's going to be at least one other person looking at it (based on the website statistics I receive). And this is what truly humbles me. I cannot make it have a feeling of community, a feeling that you're not alone, by myself. It's you, and everyone else that comes by, that really does make it feel like my home, like a warm place where people gather and find a moment to just be.
And because you're important, and you're here and sharing in this journey with me, I'd like to do more than say hello. I'd like to share a virtual cup of coffee with you. This is kind of cheesy, I know, but I felt grumpy and down this morning so I'm in the mood for cheesy. If we were having coffee you'd ask how I'm doing. And I'd tell you - this morning I didn't feel motivated or very inspired. I haven't reached some goals I'm aiming for, and I felt down. I didn't feel what I'm doing is good enough. But this is why I have my mantra, one step at a time. So today my step isn't about writing or sending out pitches. It's just about getting my good feeling back. And that's enough. That's my step for today, and it's an important one.
And then I'd ask you. How are you doing? You don't have to actually tell me. But I would like you to take a moment to ask yourself how you're doing. What's going on in your life? Take a deep breath, and think about you for a second. Write your thoughts down in a journal, or just hold them in your heart for a moment, and then release them. Whatever you do just know someone cares, I care, and if I could meet you for coffee and ask in person I would. But for now, we've got this space, and I'm grateful you're here.
