beautiful, inspiring, raw, vulnerable, sincere, and made ME (the reader) feel liberated.
Well, the reviews are in I guess.
I never imagined that something I wrote would warrant a statement like that.
I never imagined anyone would read this blog
outside of the 3 people I told about it in the beginning.
But I hit that share button to send it to Facebook &
I have readers?
I have “followers”?
I have someone who took time out of their day to make sure I knew that they liked my writing,
that it meant something to them!
I realize that this little thing, is not as little as it may seem.
I know how life is, and how it can get.
busy, stressful, hectic.
Even that small effort of clicking the “like” button means something to me.
So, to the ones who support me & encourage me,
even in the simplest of actions:
I recognize you & I thank you.
& I hope to return the thoughtfulness
someday as often as I can.
Which brings me to my next thoughts.
How often do I need encouragement?
Probably more than the average person.
I’m an artist, an actor.
it’s almost a requirement to be needy & insecure.
But how often do I give out encouragement?
& it’s sad.
Why would I ever neglect to give that which I am so desperate to have myself?
There are a number of reasons & excuse that could be named.
But that isn’t what matters.
What is important is that I realize that everyone around me deserves, wants, & needs encouragement,
Just like I do.
& I need to make more of an effort to make the people in my life know
how much they mean to me,
and how much I believe in them.
Even in the little things.
As often as I can.
