I embarked on this blogging journey a few short months ago, but it was something that was percolating in my mind for years. One of my “hopes” was my blog might launch others into their great adventure, or as I put it, their True North. Well, I can say with glee, that this is starting to take root and one of my dearest friends is embarking into the blogging world and I know it will give her much satisfaction as her words will influence so many.
My dear friend Nanci is my biggest encourager. She is the friend that makes me feel like I’m doing something of value. I honestly don’t know who reads my posts, but I can’t express enough, how much I appreciate her feedback and honestly, encouragement. She gives me the courage to continue, and now she’s expanding her gifts and talents (which are many) to plunge into a new realm of communication. I am so excited for her and I am confident she will be a tremendous influence to her audience.
I’m sure I will look back at things I wrote and wonder what was I thinking, but that’s okay. We all learn and grow and what do we really have to fear? I have learned, even if my product isn’t the best, I’m responding to my desire to explore and hopefully influence on my readers towards something that makes them chuckle or gives them a thought to ponder.
We all need a support team whether we are delving into something new or trudging through life. Some days are nothing but Mandevilla flowers and other days there is no evidence of a bloom. Having someone that is cultivating your dream, encouraging you and cheering you on is like an ever-blooming Mandevilla plant.
I’m hoping I can offer words of encouragement to my dear friend as she embarks on this blogging pilgrimage. Keep your eyes open for her upcoming site: pursuinghealthandhappiness.com. It speaks of how life has taken her down an unexpected road, and how she has embraced life despite the advent of divergent health.
