I dedicate this blog to you, the readers, and to all those who have stood by me throughout this journey...
Maybe it's not a big deal for those who have pursued writing for years and have a series of online resumes of published material, but today is a big deal for me. I never thought of my written word to have as strong of merit in the likes of an online platform that was created by Arianna Huffington.
I started writing because I was deeply flawed. I have so many ideas and developments that have been left unfinished and I felt that I needed to write about my life and put it on display to feel the essence of embarrassment when I don't follow through with my goals.
This was supposed to be a structure.
It was supposed to document my professional progress.
This blog was supposed to keep me in line.
Instead, it became an emotional documentary on the joys and disappointments that deeply changed my life. I'm not sure if my original plan for this blog was realistic or...I'm not quite sure how to finish this sentence. I can only say that this blog became a reflection of me and that life doesn't always go according to plan. And at times when I felt the most helplessness, all I could do was pick up a pen, a piece of paper and be honest.
And all of you were with me every step of the way.
Today, I am happy to share that All of me at 33 and Wanting more at 34 is now the first original WOMANworks content that has just been published. You can now find it on thriveglobal.com - Did I mention that Arianna Huffington is the Founder and CEO of this company?
This achievement was an aim towards a goal that I have longed to accomplish this year and since you have been along with me for the ride, I must ask ask:
What past blog posts have spoken to you? Why?
What post would you like to see published next?
I will discuss the feedback and let you know which one will be chosen for the next attempt to get my writing out there. Again, thank you for continuing to go on this journey with me and may all of us have as much warmth, support, encouragement and strength in our lives, just like what you have given to me since the first day I launched Butterfly.
