Today is my one year blogging anniversary!
One year ago today I wrote Closing the Store. The store had been closed for one week and for the first time in my adult life I was unemployed. As I continued to write I started getting comments and followers. I planned to write once a week, no more than 300 words then I decided to stop restricting myself and just write whatever I wanted to write whenever I felt like writing.
This blog was my outlet and finding a network of people who related to me or simply supported what I was writing about was amazing. In one of the most difficult times in my life this little blogging world helped keep me positive and motivated on the days when I wanted to give up.
I’m not writing the grand post I’d planned for my one year. I’ll simply share links to a few of my favorite posts and wish everyone a lovely Sunday!
No More Pizza? Reading through this one today was a good reminder to get back to the three basics I list in the post.
Be Happy… I still keep these things in mind and can’t believe I used to hate shopping.
You’ve Got Mail! Reminded me I need to write some letters this week.
Here’s a few posts about the biggest change in my life, my attitude. As I learned to focus on the positive instead of the negative I finally learned you don’t have to have a perfect life to be happy. Happiness is about attitude, positive thinking, and finding the joy in the simple things in life.
I found the featured image a few weeks ago while looking for pics for something else and I’ve been waiting for the right post to use it. 😀
