I keep my expectations low.
I putter around with my little blog, writing whatever and get the most enjoyment from those who leave comments and likes. That’s it, end of story. I didn’t come up with Blogs so they don’t generally have the same uniqueness as those of a much younger generation.
That being said, when I am nominated for an award, I find myself humbled by the act. It’s not low self-esteem or a lack of valuing what I write. It’s just one of those things that catch me off-guard because I don’t look for them.
I am very appreciative of the opportunity to share my thoughts and stories with all of you. YOU make this worthwhile for me and the time we share together is worth more to me than all the book sales in the Universe.
Someone once said that the “End justifies The Means” and I find that very true where Writing is concerned. I couldn’t quit doing it if I wanted and believe me, there have been times…hehe.
Doing what we love is a great gift. It may not seem like it sometimes, but I have experienced those who have denied their natural gifts and become bitter and miserable individuals. While that may be a fact of Life, it is NOT a fact of mine.
Man, I need longer topics…hehe. 🙂
