It feels like it's been way to long since I've spoken with you all... and the reason that it feels this way is because it actually has been way to long. My last post came out on July 21, and the Summer time has been hectic, so just shy of 1 month I am making my triumphant return back to the blogosphere!
Now... just because I haven't been blogging doesn't mean that I haven't been grinding! On July 11 I started a magical new journey called #EngageDaily! Every single day I've been dropping motivation & inspiration over on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram! I posted a video every single day, and it's been incredible to hear the response of these videos.
But I have to say I have been overwhelmed at the very personal responses that I've had about this blog. Over the last few weeks, I have run into person after who has pulled me aside or sat down with me over coffee and thanked me for this very blog. The response is truly humbling.
Every time I sit down to write I would like to think that I'm making a difference. When I sit down to craft a post I am keenly aware of the sense of responsibility as my fingers chatter away on the keyboard. But it's not until you are confronted with the fruit of your labors that you are every truly aware of your the actual impact that you are making.
I am sharing this about me and about this blog in a feeble attempt to speak life into you. The things that you are doing right now and changing lives, right now. You may think that your thoughts or your craft isn't making a difference, but I want you to know that the biggest cheerleaders are most often the quiet types.
You will never know the true impact of what you are doing until you accidentally or coincidentally (if you believe that's even a thing) bump into one of those people. It's in those moments that the true value of your contributions is measured.
Don't stop creating. Don't stop pursuing your dreams. The things that you are doing right now in your spare time, are having a full-time impact. Don't Stop. Change the world. One idea at a time.
