Why I Blog

This has been a question that has been on my heart recently: Why do I spend countless hours sharing my thoughts and experiences through blog posts?

There are many reasons why I write my blog,  but one of the main ones is due to building relationships with my readers. I'm blessed to have such amazing readers! Thank you for listening to what I have to say and sharing your stories.

I received such a sweet email yesterday from a reader who is letting me post her comment.  It reinforced why I write my blog.

After I shared a post a few days ago, Don't Let Your Fear Stop You From Achieving Your Dream , one of my loyal readers, Felicity Lumb, commented on it. She said she could really relate to the following quote I posted: “I realized that everyone is at different stages in their life journey.  Each has his/her own definition of success and what that looks like in their life.”  She then proceeded to share how she was feeling like a failure.

I had to respond as I could relate to what she was going through and her feelings of inadequacy.   Her response to my email left me speechless. It was so beautiful that I had to ask if I could post the comment on here.

Her response to me:

"Just when you think no one notices, or understands , someone comes along with a similar issue, a similar outlook and you realize that we are ALL each other's reflection. Thank you for sharing yourself and your life. You are an inspiration to me and I love your blog!"

Thank you for your comment Felicity! It touched my heart! You continually inspire me with your strength and courage.

The reason I write my blog regularly is because I love connecting with people and letting them know they aren't alone.  There are others who are experiencing similiar struggles. We all have our own definitions of success and are all on our own paths in life. But, we can still be there for each other on the journey.

I found this beautiful poem and it reflects how I see myself as a blogger and a coach.  I would like to be that person/friend that "stands by" as you journey through life.  Hope you like it!
