There are 2000 people following me. 2000 people who have cared enough at some point or another to want to follow what I have to say.
2000. TWO THOUSAND FOLLOWERS. I AM SHOOK.
Not gonna lie. This is kinda surreal and I’m kinda overwhelmed and I don’t really know how to process this. I promise in the video more eloquent thank yous because I’m usually more eloquent in writing but writing this now, I realize that I will probably embarrass past me who thought I would have my shit together and actually know how to thanks y’all for the past three years and a half in the community, for the support, for the opportunities and most important of all for the friends.
Over the past three years and a half I met some of my best friends, people I can’t imagine my life without now, people who’ve shown me unconditional love and support, no matter what I was going through or what I needed, they were there. Not even thousands of miles nor oceans could stop them. They know who they are. I also got to befriend and interact with so many people since joining the community, we may not talk a lot, we may only talk on occasions but I value every interaction. So thank you for following me, sticking by me, and through your support, opening doors to things I didn’t know were reachable for me, and thinks I didn’t even think of doing.
Being in the community pushed me out of my comfort zone more times than I could count, it made me grow and made me realize just how many things I could do if I only believed in myself enough. And I do. I do believe in myself enough now to express my opinions unfiltered, to talk about the things I am truly passionate about and have people read them, and actually care enough about my words to interact with them. It’s sorta mind-boggling if you think about it? That my corner of the internet has people willingly coming in and out of it because they want to read whatever thoughts cross my mind that I want to share. I also believe in myself enough to say yes to things, to work on projects, to initiate projects like #DiverseBookBloggersDiscuss which is my pride and joy as well as another collaborative *whispers* secret project I’m working on right now with a friend and that I’ll get to talk about in just a little over a week. As well as many many more opportunities behind the scenes.
I honestly pour my heart and soul into this lil brain child of mine and seeing that pay off is rewarding. It makes all the hard times, the nights I stay up too late typing away, the burn-outs and the doubts worth it. So all of this to say THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES ❤ This number has always been some kind of unachievable goal for me to be honest haha even when I was 200 or ever 100 followers away. This also happens to be my 500th post!!! So it all worked out perfectly!
ENJOY ME BEING EMBARRASSING AN ABNORMAL NUMBER OF TIMES!!!
That’s it until next time.
Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.
