a spoonful of confidence.
i debated whether to share this or not. mostly because it felt almost too personal to share on my blog. or just something i wanted to keep to myself and revel in secretly. but i am having a moment of pure exhilaration right now. a feeling of i can’t believe that just happened. i have been living in this haze of pure happiness all weekend long. isn’t it amazing what one word of encouragement will do for your soul? especially when it is from that one person you really respect?
well that is what happened to me on friday. and i am pretty much over the moon about it.
you see, i took a risk and sent a simple email to this certain someone. i really didn’t expect a reply in any way. and i was ok with that. imagine my surprise when that same person left a comment on MY blog!!! total geeky star struck moment. i didn’t even imagine i could feel that way.
a simple comment on a blog might not seem to be very much. but it truly spoke to my heart. and it gave me a huge boost of confidence. since the beginning of this year i have been amazed at all of the confirmations that i am doing what i am supposed to be doing with my life. and this was really just the icing on top of everything that has happened so far.
a few years ago i would have never even imagined that i would be on the path that i am on now. i was too afraid to dream. paralyzed by fear and discouragement. but i am so glad that i made a choice to hope again. because i am now living the most amazing creative life. and i know that there are so many great things right around the corner.
so i think i will bask in this moment for a while longer if you don’t mind. if you are curious who i am talking about, just read through the comments on this post. hint: it was the person who wrote the book that i mentioned in the post. and thank you to all of you who left such lovely comments on friday. i am so blessed!!!
