Sometimes, when you are feeling down and in need of a boost - no matter how much your friends and family are there to support you - it is the words of a stranger that will make you feel energized again.
A person by the name of RandomEncouragement sent me an offline yesterday - "You are an amazing person, and a lovely writer. Your blog is well loved. Please don't give up on it. <3" - and I think it was a pick me up that I really needed...
It's a long story, but I now have a feeling of, I guess you could call it, Peace and Happiness?!
Basically last week I had this feeling of BLEH when it came to blogging. Why was I bothering? Did anyone actually care if I posted or not? Did anyone even look? I felt like the voice that I had was being overlooked and if I am being honest with myself it was a bit of a selfish thing because I was slightly disappointed with a lack of response to my blogging voice.
I've always said that my blog is something I do for me, if people don't like it then they don't have to read it and there are plenty of other blogs out there where people can get more of a fashion fix than my rant space. Yet for some reason, I listened to others talking about stuff they were working on and allowed myself to forget the real passion that I have for playing around with photography and letting my thoughts flow freely without restrictions! I let feelings of blah affect the way I think and I was seriously on the point of closing my blog.
I voiced my thoughts to a few, many told me not to give up something I enjoy and suggested that I should either get back on the horse - which I did with my delirious post - or take a break... One even threatened with slappage, if I did something so silly... I'm glad they did... I get up to a lot at the moment, exploring and shopping and the like, but a majority of it is centered around my blog... Where would I be without it?! Yet messages like the one from RandomEncouragement really boost my confidence - especially after being accepted as a blogger for SongBird - I was floating on cloud nine... My blog is here to stay!!!
To the mastermind behind RandomEncouragement... I don't know who you are and don't even want to try to work out if I know you, but you've really made one slightly down-in-the-dumps blogger dust off her blogger brain and get back on track! My mojo is back, and the smile that goes with it too... Thank you for taking the time to send a message as lovely as this, and thank you for being a lovely person in a world that is sometimes less than wonderful to pick people up when they fall! Whoever you are, you are awesome!
