Exactly six months ago, on January 25th, I’ve posted my first article on this blog. Today marks the first step in my exciting quest of personal development.
Yes, I must admit it like everyone else: time flies!
It feels as if it was only yesterday that I’ve made a decision to document my personal development discoveries and achievements here in this blog, and yet here I am: some 50 articles and half a year later! Unbelievable!
As you remember, we’ve been blessed with the birth of our lovely daughter Elizabeth, and this tiny girl has brought such a happiness to our family that we can only be thankful. We absolutely adore her, and she seems to kind of like us too ;) She’s a wonderful baby and a great support and motivation to us. There is absolutely nothing our little girl cannot help us with by just smiling with her incredibly sincere smile.
I also would like to thank my wife for being so understanding and supportive during this time. We’ve been together long enough to built a wonderful relationship and she always supports me in every way possible, which helps a lot.
Half a year of happy blogging
I think 6 months is a long enough period of time to confirm the seriousness of my intentions, and it makes me feel incredibly grateful and proud that some of my articles were not only thoroughly read, but were also found useful by some of you.
I’m enjoying blogging about personal development so much that it feels unnatural if more than a couple of days passes without me posting a new article here.
I’ve made a promise to myself to only write on topics I feel really passionate about, and to my own surprise I not only got increasingly interested in the topics originally chosen, but I found many more fascinating ideas and experiences to write about! It is not very often that you find a subject you can talk about for hours, and the more you learn about it, the more it attracts you.
It seems incredible to me now how many techniques from personal development I’ve naturally used before without even knowing how far from being ideal they were!
Personal development pays out
I’ve seen numerous improvements lately – everywhere in my life. It’s like I’m leaving a wonderful dream – I enjoy self-growth so much that I find new ways of doing things every day and it simply fascinates me.
I’ve also found some great friends through this blog. There is no doubt that I will make friends with many more of my visitors, but even now I can say I’m happy.
Starting the blog, struggling through the fears of not being accepted or understood, and finding the courage to speak up wasn’t easy, but it was all absolutely worth it. I’ve found out more about my purpose in life in this half a year than I did in the past 25 years!
The joy of providing value
I’ve now realised that little compares to the joy of providing a value. Honestly, I’m absolutely conscious about my writing being far from perfect, and perhaps some of my topics are not the most important things to talk about… But I like being in a position to share my thoughts and make some positive difference for others. And I feel so passionate about it that I’m absolutely sure: I will get better!
I’m growing. I’m going to read books and write even more. I’ll follow your insightful advices and will find even better topics to discuss.
And if it one day it all makes a real difference for just one person in the whole wide world, I’m going to be more than happy! That’s the kind of attitude I got from maintaining this blog. And I’d like to thank each and everyone of you for making this difference for me.
