The A to Z challenge was a lot of fun, and I think it delivered on the promises of the hosts. I "met" a lot of new people, I think I've learned to be a better blogger, and I most definitely have become a better follower of blogs. I love to leave comments now, where before I might have been a little hesitant, worried that they weren't pertinent, or that they didn't say anything new. Now that I've posted more, I realize that even a simple "Love it!" shows that someone has actually taken the time to read your words, and felt enough to let you know.
I am most inspired by the sincerity and passion of some of the new bloggers I've found. There are people out there who can just write, and write well. I would read their descriptions of sorting the recycling, if that's what they were posting. It made me realize that the subject of a post can be anything, if it's written with clarity and honesty. There are people out there who are making their dreams a reality, who have found their passion and are actively pursuing it. This blows me away. Not only am I still trying to find my passion, but I also have a history of letting anxiety get the better of me. Thank you to all of you who aren't letting it get to you, or at least not letting it win.
