Regardless of the weather or whatever else is going on in my life, the sight of an empty road stretching into the distance always brings me cheer. Especially in the countryside – the photo above was taken just north of York, UK where I live. The road leads off and in the distance you can just about make out some local ruins of a castle in a village nearby.
I would never have thought that I would still be developing as a person when I was almost 40. Yet here I am, writing a post on a blog that I didn’t think I could manage to keep going, about how I have changed in just the last month or so.
I started writing on here again about 6 weeks ago I think, after an absence of several years. I hoped that I would be able to post once a week or so maybe, and that it would help me get my thoughts in some sort of order. It has done so much more than that.
After sharing my thoughts and feelings on here I am finding that I am understanding myself quite a bit better than I was before. Being able to explore then on the page makes you think much more closely about the subject in question, which naturally increases your understanding and allowed you to develop. I feel like I am a better person for blogging 🙂
I have also touched the lives of several people who now follow what I write and occasionally comment, starting really interesting conversations. These are people from all over the world, from Canada to Singapore and Europe. I would never have heard of them let alone be able to exchange ideas with then if not for this blog.
My writing has taken off too. I don’t mean in a commercial sense, although that would be nice one day, but I am writing most days. I have joined a wonderful vibrant community over at The Poetry Forum (www.Thepoetryforum.co.uk) where I post my writing under my pen name of Robert Fox. I have received a very positive reaction to pretty much all of my pretty which has encouraged me to write even more. I would never have had the guts to do that if not course this blog and the people who read it though. By
So as far add my writing, my confidence in my writing, and my overall self understanding are concerned, I need to say a massive thank you to everyone who read this, Anna also to there great people at WordPress for providing the medium.
I how everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and a very safe and happy new year.
Set you in 2013 or before. 🙂
