I can’t believe that this is my 100th blog, where has time gone and how have I managed to do this! I feel so blessed that I have been able to write so many blogs and to be able to reach so many people across the world. I have reached The USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Sweden, Ireland and so many more. I have been able to reach those people that I didn’t expect in Turkey, Japan, Pakistan and Mexico. I didn’t realise that it would have such a huge impact on so many people across the world. When I first started I didn’t know how this journey would go and I didn’t know how many people I would reach but I am so grateful that I have been able to carry this on and I have been able to have the strength and ability to keep on going.
100 blogs ago I didn’t know what to write or how to do this but I am so glad that I took that jump and wrote how I feel. I have had so many feelings, had so many life events, had so many memories made and I am so glad that I have been able to write them down so that I can look back on them. I can see how I felt at a certain point in my life and see how far I have come and how much I have changed! When I first started blogging I was a single person who had just left work and now I am almost married and getting through my mental health and trying to be healthier.
Over the last 100 blogs I have gone from being single to being married, been to america and back, had mental health issues and still recovering, left my parents house and moved into my own flat, I have had all the holidays, I have been away with family and my in-laws, I have seen so many children grow up, I have seen new children be born, I have really thought about how I felt and wrote about it. The good thing about writing these blogs is that I have been able to write down exactly how I have felt and I hope that I have been able to help some of you to be able to be honest with yourself and others around you. I want to show you that even through the hard times and difficult times we can still get through them and we still have the strength to keep on going. It will be hard, life is hard, but it is worth it and we get to experience so much.
Over these last 100 blogs life has not been easy, it has been anything but, but I have learnt how to cope and to talk about my feelings. I have figured out the people that have wanted to stay by my side and the ones that have wanted to walk away. I know those people I am able to turn to without being judged, those I can turn to who can give me some tough love, those I can turn to who can give me some love, those I can turn to who can bring me some chocolate. I have come to know who I am and to be confident in myself, I have accepted the people around me and learnt to forgive. Most of all I have tried to live my life to the fullest and to be able to do what I want and have fun. I have learnt that life will be full of ups and downs, there will be highs and lows, there will be happy and sad times but God knows what He is doing and He understands everything I am and will go through.
100 blogs ago I didn’t know what would happen or where I would be now but what I do know is that God did. He knew when I would have a bad day, he knew when things wouldn’t go well, He knew when I felt better, He knew when I was lonely, He knew when I needed to someone to talk to, He knew when I needed time on my own, He knew when I was struggling, He knew when I didn’t have the energy, He knew when I felt isolated, He knew everything about my life and what was coming up before I did. I know that whatever the next 100 blogs will hold that He will hold me safe and I have to trust in him and all that he does. How amazing that we are able to trust in God and know that He holds the key to our future.
