Has it really been a year? I can’t believe it … a year ago I started this blog. It’s amazing what 2012 brought my way. I am so thankful and grateful that I have come this far. This is a special month for me – for so many reasons. And now, I have one more reason to celebrate …
Today I celebrate my first year of blogging. I took the first step and started it and the rest came, as I knew it would. I have learned so much from my own writings. I have grown with my own thoughts that I chose to share with you. I conquered one of my dreams. And I am so proud of myself.
This day represents more than just a celebration for something I accomplished. This day also represents my continuous persistence to go after what I want and not to worry so much about the details; the hows, the whens, and the whys … it will all work itself out – all I have to do is just take the first step. I was inspired by the movie: ‘The Secret’ as most of you might have seen it or read the book … There was a quote mentioned by Martin Luther King Jr, it hit me when I heard it. Let me share it with you: “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” I seem to be living by that quote ever since I heard it and I am glad that I did hear it at that time in my life because I was ready to act upon it.
My motivation to succeed comes from my desire to make a difference in this world. As much as I like to be praised for a job well done, I do what I do to make others happy. I care about other people especially those who have entered my life. I believe each one of them are meant to be in my life and I, in theirs. This is my reason for living every day, to be the best person I can be, to love others, to give anything I am capable of giving to those who need it. As for my pleasures in life, well, that is just a way to pass the time and prevent me from going insane. I truly believe I have a bigger purpose than being just ME … with the job that I do and with the life that I live today. Something out there awaits me, and as intense and deep this may sound, I am saying it out loud and I am sharing it with you because I feel I am finally ready for it, whatever that purpose is … I am ready for it. This blog is just the beginning of something bigger than I can ever imagine, I do not know what it is and when it will come … but it is coming.. I know it.
So in celebration with my one year anniversary, I have written an article that is the mother of all articles I have ever written, it is deep in thought, it is daring, and it is risky. This will be the hit article of the year, the one to finish off my first year of blogging – What can I say: I love attention!!
I am releasing it on the actual day that I started this webpage – stay tuned – you will be amazed at what you read!! At least I hope you do…
In closing, I want to say ‘Thank you’ to all who have supported me throughout this year, to all who have encouraged my writing and corrected me when I was wrong, to all who read my posts and continue to read, to all who write me privately – please continue to do that. It means a lot to me. Above all, Thank you Lord for giving me the inspiration to write, to make a difference; to fulfill my purpose. THANK YOU!!
