Thankful Thursdays: The Gift of Blogging

Life is such a blessing! I am in awe of the people and ideas I come across in my traipses through the blogosphere. The world of blogging is bringing me in contact with other like-minded women who are spreading their gifts of inspiration, encouragement and dialogue one post at a time. I find it hard not to delight in the recognition that we are able to create a community of support, open dialogue on issues that touch our hearts, and encouragement toward the following of our passions. Those were three of my personal goals for starting this blog, and today I am thankful that I can see it taking place before my eyes!!! This week I was blessed to stumble upon three blog posts that touched me. Neki Bosh, of they’rejustclothes.com, presented beautiful photos and posed a question that is very near and dear to my heart in her post on Black Fashion History-Black Beauty Icons. Maylana, of Maylana’s Closet had me talking out loud to my screen in agreement with her post, Leave Adele Alone . . .  and stumbling across Clutterbox Creative’s illustrations and reading about her journey to follow her passion made me reach out to her, because I could relate to the decision of finally deciding to JUST DO IT!!! (The fact that I fell in love with her illustrations was icing on the cake!) Well, today I want to thank each of these women for touching my lives by just being themselves. It is a great thing to note that you don’t have to be famous, you don’t have to fit into the stereotypes our society has placed before us, and you don’t have to have a lot of money. The beauty of blogging, and life in general, is that we can touch people through our own circles of influence, and blogging can be a wonderful way to enlarge the territory of your circle.

What have you been touched by this week?

    From the bottom of my heart Thank you :-) In the short time I have been blogging, it has been an amazing experience for me. I feel so liberated! Blogging is something I’ve talked about for years, but some circumstance or other prevented me from accomplishing my goals. My life is finally clutter free and to come across someone like yourself so early, who is so selfless and willing to encourage other women shows me that all is not lost. To answer your question, meeting you through this vast blogosphere is my thankful Thursday. Wishing you many more wonderful posts for years to come.

      Awwww! Maylana, thank you! Your words are so sweet!!! I know exactly what u mean! I contemplated blogging for some time before I actually did it and it has really been a blessing to me. I have only been at it for a few months now, but finding people like yourself along the way is a great encouragement to me and to the vision I have for this blog. I look forward to supporting you and following along with your posts. Thank you so much for the kind words :)

    I couldn’t agree more! I am amazed each day by the things I discover and people I meet through blogging. On another note, is the photo of your office? If so, I really love your decor!

      Blogging truly is amazing! I am still so new to it, but it has opened up a whole new world for me!! BTW, the image is not a pic of my office, but I tried to find a pic of an office that I would love to work in, it looks very peaceful and bright so I chose it! Thanks for visiting and commenting! :)

    I have been touched by your words!
    It’s nice to find blogs where the writer, far from a simple blog, it makes us feel the human warmth.
    Life is a blessing! and what is truly important is inside of us, the outside is a temporary ornament
