Over the weekend, I blog stalked my favorite bloggers and on occassion whenever I see a piece of furniture that I love on a new blog, I will definitely click on it and usually end up with a new favorite blogger. There are so many wonderful bloggers out there and I appreciate every one of them. But doing my usual blog jumping led me to a page where a very successful blogger that started long ago wrote a post about her journey and it was really wonderful to read. But then I read on and part of the post said that “not everyone who wants to blog is going to make it” in the blogging world. I know that is a personal opinion but truthfully, it was kind of like a slap. It really kind of hurt and then I started to doubt myself. In my head I was saying, “wow, she is right, I’m never going to make it in the blogging world. I may not be successful. I may not get to quit my career of 17 years and fulfill my dream of being a stay at home mom. I may never get paid or prosper at all from my blogging. I was kind of crushed. And I did let it get to me. But then my husband/best friend said “why would you let someone you don’t even know, crush your dreams? Why let anyone at all crush your dreams? You can do this. You got this.” Then I started thinking about my kids. What kind of example do I set if I quit? Mom’s a quitter but I want you never to quit? That is why I decided to get back up on my horse and write. Write anytime I want to write and write because I love it. Not because I expect any big success from my blog. But write because I love to write and I want to share my words with the world, or anyone who will listen. When I’m no longer in this world, I want my children to be able to say that their mom did what she wanted to do and she worked and fought for her dream and even if it never got huge, she did it and stuck with it. My words will be written on this wonderful blogsphere and they will be able to see my words, typed with my own fingers and they will smile and know that I wrote because I loved to write. I hope everyone is having a wonderfully awesome Monday! Be blessed!
