My Longest Relationship.
It was neither lust nor love at first site, but there was definitely passion and desire. I was shy and nervous. Was I ready to take this love public?
We went hot and heavy for the first few months, but it was exhausting. And, inevitably, it started to fade. But like any true love, it resurged to a more consistent and manageable pace.
This month, my blog celebrates one year. One year of me sticking to something I enjoy. One year of me continuing to step away from my privacy shield. One year of commitment. My longest relationship.
I started this blog to do what I enjoy, writing. It gradually morphed into a platform for me to diarize the conversations I have with myself.
I was hesitant and anxious when I first shared my inside voices. I was afraid of being judged. I was afraid of being that crazy one. Turns out, you’re crazy too. I am humbled by the feedback I’ve received to the blog and specific blog posts. The three common words used to describe my blog by others trend as: raw, real, and relatable.
Thank you for keeping me mentally and emotionally healthy. Thank you for validating the madness in my head. Thank you for telling me that I’m not alone. Thank you for confiding in me that you too similarly experience life. With nearly 300 followers on WordPress and Facebook in Think Rainbows first year, I sincerely appreciate the readership. Thank you.
Because I’m always thinking of my next post, I’m constantly reminded to think positively. The positive thinking isn’t innate, just yet, but nothing worth having is achieved over night.
(1) Good things come to those who work for them.
(2) Enjoy the little things in life. Someday, you will realize they were the big things.
(3) I’m serious. This is the longest relationship I’ve been in. This is as long as they get (and that’s what he said.)
