This is a season of sharing for me. Sharing a new book I believe in or posts I’ve written. But today is a good day to take a break from all that and tell you how much your real life and online support mean to me.
Writing is like a lot of your own occupations and hobbies. It is personally meaningful, but sometimes the writer is greeted with criticism or silence that make it tempting to stop taking risks and putting themselves out there.
But every time someone leaves a note that they read one of my books or related to a post I wrote, every time they ‘like’ or ‘share’ here or comment on my blog, it makes me feel like my voice doesn’t just echo through empty chambers but that it stands a chance of touching people. Of stirring something good in the world.
So many of you have demonstrated time and time again that you are those rare kinds of people who know how to be selfless, to offer support rather than competition, and to be glad for someone else’s successes. That says so much about my real life and online community. And it makes me feel like everything positive I’m given the chance to do, in part also belongs to YOU.
Thank you. Really.
