I think this is the longest I’ve stayed fully, 100% heart and soul committed to something (other than my relationship of course). I lost interest in my degree after the third week and for the following 3 years I half-heartedly completed it. I had piano lessons for seven years but was never fully present for any of them, hence why I never did pass my grade 2 exam. I did ballet for several years too, but I always had to drag myself out of bed and force a smile on my face so that my ballet teacher wouldn’t shout at me.
But this little blog is actually a miracle. I’m completely in love with this world I’ve created for myself. My thoughts are constantly fixed on what I’m writing tomorrow. Admittedly there have been times of frustration/ total writer’s block – but they were only frustrating because I love doing this so much that I need every blog post to be perfect.
In celebration of these 100 blog posts, I thought I’d do a “Throwback Thursday” and re-share a few of my favourite posts and the story behind them.
This was one of my first ever posts. I actually wrote it within five minutes – and that’s how I know that it was God writing through me. I remember it was around 2am at night and I was trying to sleep but I was so restless. I opened my laptop and just started to write. It was after this post that I started believing in my writing – not because I’m a good writer but because I knew then that God is totally behind it.
I had so much fun writing this. I literally spent hours searching for photos to match each description, and I loved every second of it. Even though this post had a fun element to it, I felt so strongly about every point I wrote. There are few things better in life than a truly good friend.
This is my most popular post – having almost triple the amount of views compared to any of the others. I found this one of the easiest to write, but I honestly contemplated not posting it at all. In a way I wanted to keep Bradley and our relationship to myself but I decided in the end that I really wanted to honour him and everything that makes him so incredible to me. I wanted to show him how much I loved him in the best way I know how – my words.
The tears never stopped when I wrote this on Father’s Day. I probably wrote 10 different posts but I settled with this one. It was one of the hardest but definitely the one I love the most.
This was another hard post to write. It was a massive struggle to be honest about this topic, but I knew that in doing so I could help someone else. I’ll hopefully be writing more posts like this in the future, especially now that I’m more comfortable in telling you basically everything…
From the bottom of my heart, thank you if you have been a follower for the past 100 blog posts. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my thoughts as much as I have enjoyed writing them. I can’t wait to see what the next 100 blog posts will bring!
All my love,
