Today’s blog post is intended to be short, but sweet: I want to take this as an opportunity to say thank you.
Since I published my post last Friday about being “dia-feated”, a dozen or so members of the DOC – and even a couple nonmembers – have reached out to me via social media to share their words of encouragement with me:
“…I enjoy your blog posts and your voice is important to me”
“…your blog reached one person, and that’s enough (for me)”
“I read your blog all the time, and it helps me.”
Each message expressed similar sentiments using different words: Don’t give up. My voice matters to someone.
Again, the intention of that post was never to drive traffic to my blog or messages to my inbox. I was merely trying to express some sentiments that I’d been feeling for a few weeks now. But the fact that so many people DID, in fact, take the time to reach out to me and exchange a few messages with me meant the world. I found each one to be uplifting and truly touching, and if you were one of the individuals who wrote to me, I can’t thank you enough.
It’s funny – but truly wonderful – how kind words from friends and strangers alike can do so much to revitalize your soul and make you see what’s right in front of you: an amazing, supportive community who just gets it.
