(The picture is of 1 of the 108 deities sitting in meditation at the dilwara temple in Mount Abu, India. Hence the speciality of my 108th post!) Wow, I can’t believe I’ve had this blog going since December and this is now my 108th post!! Going back and looking at some of my first posts it’s made me see that I have come a long way.
I remember telling people about blogging, when I first began, about the great network you can develop by blogging. That’s absolutely true, I’m met some amazing people, just through blogging and it’s been an absolute priveledge getting to know some of those amazing souls! But’s it’s been much much more too! I feel like I’ve grown, expanded, fallen, and grown and risen again. And through it all I’ve experienced pain, joy, love, passion, pride, humility fear, courage, and that to me, has been the biggest thing of all, through this medium called “blogging”, I have had real true experiences. This to some people is just a screen sitting in front of them. But to me, electrical signals are passed all around the globe and reach you an me in seconds! I can convey to the world, my sentiments, feelings and I will never truly fathom how far or wide these words will reach. All I know is I used courage, to take a plunge and put my words and feelings out there in the electrical ether for all to experience with me.
My true aim is for these words to reach people and have an positive impact. I know that I only get a few hundred visitors a month but that to me is more that I ever thought possible in the beginning. When I began I didn’t know where to start of what to even write about. Of course there was the Power of Choice but I couldn’t write about the same thing over and over again. I had to explore parts of me that I never knew existed. It’s not easy thinking about new ideas and creating new avenue’s of exploration every day but It is incredibly fulfilling and soul-creating. Even if your realease is not blogging, find an avenue of create release that is stimulating and feels re-creative to you!
Anyway, that’s enough babbling from me, I just wanted to leave you with this article that I saw on the Interenational Herald Tribune Website about Andre Agassi. The guy is 36 years old and is still up there with the best of them giving them one heck of scare!! I have so much respect for him and he’s one of my life hero’s because he has shown that age means nothing, that if you have a passion for something and you love doing something, then don’t make excuses about your age. I have made a commitment to myself that every year on my birthday I will challenge myself, physically, spiritually, mentally more and more to keep myself young, fit, healthy, and spiritually sound because I don’t believe that getting physically older, should become an excuse to do less and less. Thank you Mr Agassi! 😀
