I started blogging the year my niece was born, 2006. She seems to have grown leaps and bounds whereas my development has been much much more subtle … but equally as acute. I probably wouldn’t have notice as much had it not been for my blog which I cull through every now and then. Sure, I have journals I scribble in … in fact, I’ve been ‘posting’ albeit more old school in notebooks since I was about 12 so if I truly wanted, I could really see how I’ve really grown :p
The online space though creates a whole new way of communicating … even if it’s just with myself. It’s so much more accessible than my notebooks and journals, which by the way, are all still in storage. I read old posts easily on the go with my iPhone or at my desk to remember where I’ve been, what I was thinking and contemplate on learning to be happy 😉
That’s what I’ve been realising about this blog. As much as it is for my family and friends to keep up to date with what’s going on with me, it is largely a space to reflect on my current state of mind and hopefully as the years go by I’m happy with how I’ve grown … I hope I never stop 🙂
Thank you all for being part of this journey, hope you never get bored!!
