Can you believe another year has flown by already…blah blah blah…. keeping it sweet and short, I just want to say…happy new year you wonderful group of people!Remember, keep your head above water, be thankful for the little things, believe in yourself and keep that black swirling hole boarded up!!
Now that’s out of the way, let’s get onto the point of this post, you might need a sick bucket as it’s going to get rather soppy.
I started this blog around 8 months ago, I had no idea the huge impact it would have on me. I needed an outlet, somewhere I could say what ever I wanted without worrying about the repercussions, somewhere I could be as filthy, open and raw as I could possibly be.
The Secret Blog of a 30 Year Old was born.
So my online diary began. I have shared stories, traumas, mental health and the majority of my daily life. (As well as random crap and embarrassing facts I feel compelled to share!!) I have written about past issues I never in a million years I thought I could 100% put to bed, but somehow, with the overwhelming support YOU have given me, they were tucked up with a bedtime story and set free.
I had no IDEA that ANYONE would EVER even stumble across my blog, I have no idea that so many of you would relate and enjoy my ramblings. I had no idea that I would make FRIENDS with this blog, that I would find people that truly got me. I feel like so many of you know my heart and soul and it has been overwhelming beautiful. You have restored my faith in mankind and I have no idea how to thank you all for that.
I don’t know what many of you look like, but it doesn’t matter in the slightest, your inner beauty shines through with every comment, your comforting, supportive, hilariously kind words warm my heart every day. The community i have found has made my life a brighter place. I feel so blessed for everything I already had and YOU have been the icing on the cake.
Since I started this blog I have had nearly 32,000 views, nearly 2000 followers and over 7,000 likes and over 4,000 comments. I can proudly say I have read every single comment, and responded to most! I didn’t start this blog to gain numbers, I don’t follow them or chase them, but seeing it altogether like that has blown me away.
Most people set New Years resolutions, I’m not a huge fan of that, I think it sets me up for failure!!! So instead of thinking about what you want to improve, I want every single person who comes across this post, to comment one thing you love about yourself that you wouldn’t change for the world. No matter how big or small! I can’t wait to read what you come up with.
Sending you all the love in the world
