We already contain that we most deeply desire. Life, love, inner freedom, connection to all. The more we can realize this, the more we can undertake all things with a sense of abundance.
The abundant heart embraces our world, holding all its joy and fear, gain and loss, nobility and selfishness, enveloped in a field of compassion and love.
So many emotions running through my veins right now. There are certainly perks to those things and right now I’m happy with what I’ve achieved so far. But the point isn’t about how much work it is, or even about how organizations and brands try to collaborate or hire bloggers, because they are willing to do so much work for so little. For me, the breaking point was inside the blogging community, not outside it. (to be very honest). It was seeing my insights and views increase on a daily, and all other good important things!
Count your blessings. Be thankful. The message about gratitude can be heard these days, loud and clear. Being thankful is such an important practice to hold onto in this fast-paced world in which we live, simply noticing the things we are thankful for. My measure of success wasn’t about numbers or likes, it was about people sharing something I was passionate about. The times I felt most successful were reading emails from real people and then recommending me to others as well.
P.S: My hands are a bit sore from cooking all day. So, my writing is a bit off today. Lol.
And of course, I would be remiss to talk about the importance of gratitude, and to paint such a dark story of my recent months of lifestyle blogging, without also pointing out how incredibly grateful I am to have done it. Creating this site has had many ups and downs. The most important which is making connections with all of you — each and every one, whether you have followed, liked or commented. Whether you’ve made any order and suggestions or not — if you are reading this right now, thank you, thank you and thank you. It might seem a bit crappy, but I don’t have a better way to say it right now. Thanks for being an audience!
