First off, I’d like to thank each and every one of you who reached out after the last two posts. It really means a lot to me to have so many caring and lovable souls not only reading the words I write, but supporting me along the way. It was a very rough time I went through, but your encouragement and kindness helped brighten the dark cloud I was under and I wish I could give you all a hug for that. Though I did take an absence from the blogosphere, I am doing immensely better and look forward to diving back into Defining Wonderland. What’s that knocking on my door? Must be acceptance.
What a year it has been, Wonderlings!
I am so honored and grateful to each and every one of you for your support and interest in this little blog of mine. I can proudly say that after 366 days (2012 was a Leap Year after all), 52 weeks, and 87 (this will be 88) posts, I have kept my resolution for the year.
Yes, this is Defining Wonderland’s first blogiversary! It has been a wonderful year with all of you. Thanks for joining me along this ride and I look forward to continuing to blog in the coming year.
Sometimes, I find myself dwelling on the negatives in my life and all the things I wish were different. It can be easy to get wrapped up in imagining your life forever changed if just this or that were different. I’m sure I would be happier if I earned more money. I think I would find my soul mate if I lost a few pounds. My life would begin if I got the chance to start over someplace new. These are the kinds of thoughts that eat away at the very core of your happiness.
I’ve been noticing lately that my posts have been on the down side. I did not create this blog to wax on about every little thing that bothers me or how mopey I feel, especially because I’m a pretty happy person 99% of the time. Those aren’t the kind of words I like to read, so why on earth have I been writing them?
