SG054 - Twelve months on

It’s been a year since I started this blog and have posted 54 of them (including this one)!

I remember when I first started I was so nervous and freaking out about what people would think of me and how I might be judged.

There are many times I’ve been stuck with choosing what to write about or have wondered what the point is and whether I really had anything meaningful to say.

What I’ve learned in the last twelve months is that even if only one person reads this blog then it’s enough - even if that one person is me!

I learned that I couldn’t write for the likes or the follows, I had to write because I had chosen to write.

I had to believe I would make a difference, even though I may never ever know the difference I really made.

It’s a discipline, it’s a practice, it’s doing the work.

I write because I know that by choosing to do so each week I will find something to say.

I write because I have a vision for a world without masks and this blog tests me and my ability to keep it real each and every week.

I write because it allows me to see all the lessons I’ve learned and those that I still need to learn!

I write because I love to write. I love to write because I chose to give it a go and I chose to believe it would make a difference.

What I know for sure is that with consistent and steady action you can create something to be proud of.

I’m not the best writer in the world but I’m a better writer than I was twelve months ago.

You don’t have to choose to write but whatever you choose, choose it because you choose it.

Choose it because you want to grow, to get better with practice, choose it for you and the difference you can make to others by doing something you love.

Allow yourself to picture twelve months from now - what will you have done, what gift will you share?
