Blog Reflections

One click leads you to another click. And so on and so forth. Hours can pass. And before you know it you are entwined in a never ending web of words.

A virtual world filled with infinite space. Hundreds upon millions of blogs out there. Nothing tangible, yet addicting and intoxicating all the same.

A daunting thought, isn’t it?

Original thoughts and ideas are rare. Creativity and talent at every turn.

How can I say anything that hasn’t already been said? This is the thought that has consumed my mind for the better part of weeks.

Then I received two of the most heartfelt notes.

Notes that boosted my spirits and made me remember why I blog.

We may not be a pulitzer prized author or candidate for top chef. We may not even be anything more than average. But we have the ability to reach out into a virtual world and make connections with women much like ourselves.

Whether we are college students, newlyweds, married with toddlers or teens, or entering the nesting years…

Today I am reminded that we are all on a similar journey, trying to make our way. And ultimately we are all seeking happiness and a sense of belonging.

From one fellow blogger to another, thank you. This journey is so much better with you in it.

    Beautifully said, Lish. And so very true. We all just want to belong, to be happy. To know that we're not alone in this crazy, confusing, challenging, but most rewarding thing called life. Thanks for being such a wonderful friend.
