I can’t believe you read my blog…you really read it
Along time ago Sally Fields won a Oscar and in her speech she said “You like me, you really like me”
She was amazed that she won this most prestigious award and that people liked her work.
This is the way I feel every time someone comes up to me or writes me and tells me that they read my blogs.
My girlfriend said last night as another person had just told me this “Why are you surprised? What do you think you just write them and put them out there and no one reads them?”
Well yeah…kind of, I don’t know, I guess I just write them and hope that maybe somebody will read them and maybe it would help them but yes, every time someone says this to me I am surprised.
I am surprised my girls young friends read my blog, I’m surprised my older clients read it, hell I’m surprised anyone is a loyal follower as there are so many others out there to read and follow.
I am definitely surprised that men read my blogs because in the beginning I thought that I was just writing for women, to get their voices back but I guess I’m just writing about life and that affects everyone.
There is nothing that’s off-limits for me to write about, love, racism, dating, problems with your kids, life coming at you, work issues, I write about life and that affects us all and so I shouldn’t be surprise but yet every time I am.
I am humbled as well because again there are so many amazing writers out there and your time is precious, so to spend your time reading my stuff humbles me.
I try to be as transparent as I possible can as I know what an expert liar I once was, lying about how happy I was, (I was misrable)
That my family was perfect (we were a dysfunctional mess)
That I loved my husband (I hated him, he was my warden not my husband)
Yes, my whole life consisted of lies and I swore that I would never live that way again. So yes, I put it all out here, the good, the bad and the really ugly for everyone to see.
I feel if I am real, if I am having these problems and issues, I know that there are other people out there going through the same stuff as well.
Maybe you can learn from my mistakes, maybe you can feel like your not alone, maybe if you see me getting through it, you’ll know you can too. Maybe just maybe I can be an inspiration to someone’s life and that would be fulfilling my God giving purpose here.
This is why I do this every day, 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year for the last 4 years because I am called to do it, not for the likes, the pat on the back or for the followers, it’s what I am called to do.
So today my friends, my followers and my readers, thank you, thank you for taking the time to read my stuff, to watch my videos and to send me your comments, I am so grateful to all of you and so very humbled.
I hope to keep doing this and one day soon do it full time, for a long time to come until one day, I no longer think I can’t believe you read my blog, you really read it.
