I have been thinking a lot recently about laying all my feelings out on the internet and I have asked myself, is it worth it?
Of course, I do it for myself first and foremost to give cubic dimension to my thoughts and feelings. To help me compartmentalize what is happening for me and work through my issues and come to some resolution. But, I would also hope that if my journey helps just one person, it is worth all of it.
That one person will interact with so many people during their lives. If your example helps them make a decision that changes the trajectory of their lives in a positive way, why would you not want to?
I believe success is not about the numbers in the business of blogging but about connections and what you do with those moments in time. The kind word, the gentle nudge, the affirmation of “I’m here”, the confirmation of everyone’s value and contribution is what it is all about, for me.
I don’t want to race for the number but relish in the connections.
