I'm back home and it's the Monday morning after a very needed holiday. Yesterday I was totally exhausted and hardly had the energy to tell my family how great my holiday was, let alone blog about it. I have meeting in an hour and a half, but my week couldn't begin without sharing one of my most precious 'project me' moments to date.
I have been blogging for nearly a year and have committed to the second year on daily blogging because of many reasons. One reason shines a little brighter than the others ... world meet Robbie!!
From my very first day of blogging there was a comment on my blog. I was so excited I didn't know what to do with myself. I have become friends with so many bloggers and everyone's greatest fear or?dismantlement is always based on their comments. I have had friends want to stop blogging because they don't received comments ... but there he was from day one.
Having a post retweeted is just as exciting for a blogger ... and there he was again. However, this retweet wasn't like all the others I have had. This one got two strangers chatting and then making friends on Facebook and then making promised of sharing ice cream on the beach.
I've had a lifetime of empty promises and a lot of 'project me' has been about not looking into the past and anticipating the next empty promise, but rather being in the moment and holding onto the promises that truly count.
This one did ...
When I started blogging my intentions were based on getting my name out there so that I could get the recognition as a writer. They were also based on living what I teach ... courage, consciousness and a sense of humour ... and hoping that I could show the world it was possible. The last thing on my mind was making beautiful friends and keeping promises.
The last thing on my mind was sharing a meal together ...
Building sand castles ...
And finding such an incredible person to call my friend!
Thank you for your AWESOMENESS, Robbie ... and for being with me every step of the way!
