This blog has 1,100 followers. After hitting the thousand subscriber milestone on my channel a few days, I quickly gained another century. My count is now at 1,112. This is 6 months versus 8 years right here.
My 8th blogiversary is coming up in May. Since the 7th I’ve been contemplating retiring this blog and moving on. Now this doesn’t mean I will stop writing because writing is a part of my identity. I’ve been creatively writing since at least 3rd grade. Two reasons why I wanted to move on. One, 7 is the number of completion and in the 7 years I’ve been on here I didn’t accomplish what I set out to do back in May 2011. Two, I wanted to avoid certain people reading my work.
One of the new features of getting a thousand subs is community posts, which acts like a blog post itself. You can post a picture and write. I’m thinking about transferring my writing there.
Happy 420!!! Here’s what I wrote last year
My Dearest Aezora,
In this letter I write to convey wisdom to the sorrow you feel under the circumstances-
You should know it is not your fault- you could have done… nothing to change the situation…no way to void it-
I know the pain is great…but all will move on…the pain will never pass…never truly go away…but in time you will become numb to it-
The loss felt, in reality, is for the best in honesty and will strengthen your bond with your own self in morals and ethics…though your trust in both is now shattered-
Do not allow the pain…the feelings to overwhelm who you are-
Do not allow them to consume you-
Do not be afraid to cry-
I understand the hate you hold within you is great-
You must release it…Forgive him if not for him…for yourself-
It is the only way you will be able to move on..the only way to even begin to heal-
Trust is such a fragile emotion…like glass…easily broken…not so easily restored to its former glory and beauty-
Give yourself time-
You will heal…your faith restored-
Nichiren Daishonen gave the best advice when he said…” Never let life’s hardships disturb you…no one can avoid problems, not even saints or sages. “
Remember…you are the weed…and you are stronger than you think…and appear to be-
Always and Always,
