Day 202 ~ Reaching Out To You

I can't believe it!  My blog has reached a smidgen over 9,000 views!  From coast to coast, with only a hand full of states of which my blog has not been read in, let alone all the different countries all over the world that it has... I am truly humbled.

I thank you so much.  Why?  Well you have given me motivation and incentive to write everyday.  I once received an email from a friend making sure I was okay when she had seen that I had not post to my blog yet.  I either had trouble sharing it on facebook and was so late that day... since then, I have only been late posting to facebook a few times because I had fallen asleep at my laptop before sharing ... oops.  I had been writing from bed and was extremely tired.   

Seriously, the more views I get, the happier I am.  Why? Because this increases the possibilities of being able to reach out to  "someone"  in need.   "Someone"  in need of a friend and or understanding.  A friend that not only can say that they understand what that  "someone"  has gone through, but has gone through it herself.

Well, that's me.

Asking for a lending ear is a hard step to take.  Embarrassment comes into play at the thought of sharing what one is going through... however, once that step is made then it makes it easier for the next step.   Accepting help.  

I know that if "someoneaccepts help, it may in itself make "someone" feel as if they are surrendering to the hardship they are going through... but that is not true.  You are not surrendering to it.  What you are doing, is not allowing it to take over you.  By accepting help, you the, "someone" is taking control and taking away the "power" that the so called hardship has over you.

After that, the next step... just keep looking forward!  Look forward, because we can not do anything to change our past.  However, we all know that we can learn from the past.  Then take what we learned, and use it to help us make a better tomorrow for "someone."

Blessings to all!!
