Deliberately to pursue happiness is not the surest way of achieving it. Seek it for it's own sake and I doubt you will find it.  - Robert J. Mc Cracken

Milestones are great right? They're important! They need to be celebrated and honored and stuff - but I have to tell you that I'm not feeling what I expected to feel! I've just reached 50,000 views on my blog - a goal, that when I started rambling away on my keyboard, wasn't within the farthest reaches of my imaginings - and for some reason I don't feel the epic sense of accomplishment that one would assume would accompany the occasion.

What I DO feel is an overwhelming rush of gratitude for all of you who have spent a part of your precious lives traveling with me from one adventure to the next. I'm grateful for the connections I've made with other kindred spirits. I appreciate all I've learned from your comments and am humbled as you trust me enough to share part of your adventure with me as well.

I consider it an honor to be received into your inbox and to have a post opened and read. I've seen my readership climb over the past few months and there is never a day that I don't meet it with complete surprise and delight.

You've each given me a place to examine my experience and share it for what it's worth. Your comments have given me cause to reflect as well.

So, I guess what I'm trying to say in way too many words is THANK YOU! 

I appreciate your readership! I hope to continue to bring you meaningful offerings - and when I have nothing worth sharing, I won't waste your time pretending I do! 

I hope you have the same wonderful day that you've given me!  - Anita

The greatest danger for most of us lies not in aiming too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.


  1. Congratulations! I think it's great and deserves some celebration. An ice cream cone sounds good. :D

  2. An ice cream cone sounds good to me without cause for celebration so this a great excuse! Thanks for pointing that out and thanks for reading!

  3. Hi Anita! And congratulations on all the visits to your blog! Putting our words out for the Universe to see and all to read is always an act of courage and conviction! Good for you and good for your blog! We are all looking forward to the next 50,000! ~Kathy

      Thank you Kathy for your encouragement! Blogging and reading other blogs has revealed to me how much more we are all alike than we are different. We share this being human thing with all the good, bad, and ugly that comes with it. It's nice to feel that connection and bask in the victories and share each other's trials. I hope to share that connectedness with those who visit here. Thank you for being one of them!
