One year ago today I created Simplywe in hopes it would help me out of a deep depression.
Instead of wondering what the point of a project was and therefore talking myself out of it before I even started, I would focus on the fact that it was something to blog. Rather than dwell on what I could not change, I set small deadlines and goals which helped me create a sense of order in my life.
The baby steps I took with the blog stretched into my everyday life and helped me pull myself out of the pit of despair I had been in. That’s not to say that I never have a down spell, but Simplywe has served as my lifeboat, giving me something to hold onto when I feel the darkness begin to seep in.
Simplywe has allowed me to focus on my favorite things without the self-imposed guilt that I am so familiar with. There should be no guilt involved with allowing yourself to be happy.
I am proud and only a little amazed that it’s been a full year. I have endless gratitude to you for your support.
I set a goal of hitting 10,000 visits to Simplywe by the 1 year anniversary and we did it! As I write this the stats page shows 10,050 visits! All I can say is thank you! Thank you a million times over!
