It’s my blogiversary! One whole year has gone by since I started this blog. Fast and furious, the time has flown by, full of fun and frustration, happiness and discontent, and everything in between.
Even though I shared my blog publicly for the first time at the end of November last year, I pushed that publish button on my first post on October 23rd, 2014 (you can read that first post here, if you like). It took me a while to gain the courage to share my thoughts, feelings, experiences and ideas with the world, but I am so glad I came round to it. I feel I have grown so much in the way of pushing myself out of my comfort zone, opening myself up to others, and learning to live with the fact that not everyone will like what I have to say or agree with me, and that’s okay.
Beyond growing, I have saved away so many precious experiences and thoughts that would likely have faded away into the depths of my failing memory, had I not recorded them somewhere. Having this collection of memories to go back and draw from, as a sort of open diary of my recent life, is invaluable to me.
In honour of a year’s worth of blogging, I wanted to share with you my favourite posts that have been published in this past year. I know, there are a lot of them (33 to be exact). I pared it down as much as I could, then decided – to heck with it – I just have a lot of favourites. Take a peek, and if anything tickles your fancy, click on the links to laugh, cry, learn or otherwise (hopefully) be inspired by my words.
