I think that sums it up. I don’t really know what else to say at a time like this. I can’t even begin to explain the emotions and feelings that have come about since yesterday. There is a thrill, sure, an excitement in knowing that there are people around the world reading something you’ve written. There is a fear of being unfairly judged. There is a humility and gratitude that overwhelms you to see how many people care enough about a perfect stranger to leave a happy thought.
So many of the comments have really hit home. Some have moved me to tears, but always in a good way. There are very few times in life when something occurs that causes you to reflect on yourself and your position, and hopefully you are blessed enough to take those times and learn from them. Do something positive with what you’ve seen inside yourself.
There are so many ways to move forward from here. I know many of the people that have read and written in the last 24 hours may never return. But I am interested, even just in myself, to see how I choose to progress from this point.
Perhaps someone said exactly the right thing that I needed to hear to make a difference.
