Gratitude

The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you. ~John E. Southard

I have a bad habit of letting people think I take them for granted. I do this by never saying “I appreciate you” or “I am grateful for you”. I’ve always operated under the pretense that people will know how much I appreciate them from the way I act. I like to show reciprocity when it comes to favors, etc., but sometimes it’s simply impossible to repay someone for all that they’ve done for you.

For the past month, I’ve been going through a phase that I hear is common with bloggers – I felt like I had nothing else to share. I started to wonder if my blog was headed in the right direction and if what I wrote about was still interesting to readers. There were days when I just needed a break from the responsibility of keeping the blog updated.

During this time, I’ve received words of encouragement and as if the universe knew I needed it, I had a few new people discover the website and tell me how much they LOVE it. If that’s not a kick in the right direction, I don’t know what is…so, instead of thinking that by continuing to write the kind of stuff that you guys have said you enjoy is enough to show my appreciation, I’m going to make it official.

I appreciate each and everyone of you who subscribe to the blog and continue to participate in my rants. Thank you to those of you who have increased my readership because you thought my writing was good enough to share with others. I am, and will always by humbled by your kindness and grateful for your support.

:-D
