Birthdays

Wow. I had no idea that I have had this blog for almost a year now. Doesn't seem like it. Crazy stuff. I keep reading about blogaversaries and monumental posting amounts...meanwhile ignoring my own. I never was into birthdays and anniversaries anyway. I like to try to focus on everyday.

I can't believe it's Thursday already. Make that, can't blelieve it's April or 2009. Where does the time go? I remember a summer feeling blisfully like forever. I remember being 9 and feeling like I'd never make it to 10. Now? It all passes in a blink of an eye. Now I'm 30 and wondering where the past year went. lol. I'll be 31 later this month. Wowsers. 31. When I started this blog, I was in my 20's (although, only for a moment as I turned 30 a week and half after that).

I'm a little sad. Sad that I'm still struggling with the same issues. That I haven't resolved much of anything, except to focus on it more. But, not much has seemed to change. Yet, maybe it has.

Natalia brought up a good point about not respecting the ones closest to you...including yourself. It's a good lesson to face and realize. I love what she says at the end. Be kind! Be loving! Be patient! I think that may be what my big lesson has been. That I need to be kind, loving and patient with myself. It's something I'm still struggling with, but one I'm getting a grasp on.

And, I've discovered a lot about what doesn't work for me. Like dieting and weighing myself all the time. But, that doesn't mean that I can sit around and be healthy. I need to work on things, but in a "sane", healthy way. Hmm. Maybe I can get older I and wiser? Just a little? :)

I was going to save something like this for my actual bloggaversary post, but I just realized (thanks Tom!) that I should have stated it here. The one best thing I've gained from this blog is the support of you all! I will leave the rest of the gratitude statement for next week, but realize that I appreciate your support more than you know!

Congratulations on the one year anniversary Jennifer. I agree with you that writing a blog turns out to be much more than you ever intended. I too have met many virtual friends and I count you in that number as well. Good luck.


Diana, You say that you haven’t resolved much of anything, but you may be a little wrong here. There's a whole virtual world that reads what you have to say and responds’. That alone means you have built a core of some new friends. Quite a lot to accomplish in a year. Happy Blogaversary.

Gee Diana, I must have copied and pasted too much. Chop that first paragraph and the rest is for you. :)

Tom, LOL! :)

Hey Diana,
Thanks for the link love! I'm glad that you understood what I was trying to say. Sometimes it just feels all jumbled! :)

Happy Blogoversary!

Happy blog birthday! Patience is the word. It can be hard to be patient in general and especially so with ourselves. But, we need to be patient with ourselves the most!

Have a great weekend!!!
