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.
