it’s my (blog) birthday!

wow, i can’t believe i’ve regularly blogged here for 4 years now. it doesn’t seem like that long at all. i’ve had blogs before this over the years, and even on this blog i previously only updated on very rare occasion. so, i class my blog (rather than blogging) birthday from when i started blogging on a regular basis, which was pretty much four years ago to this date.

i wish i had some interesting or useful insight to give, but really, my main thing to say is to share what you love and have passion for. it will be hard to keep up if you’re doing something just for the sake of it, or writing about various things because it’s ‘what other people do’. i can understand that if blogging is your job it’s a little harder, and of course there are times you’ll lose passion or lack your creative sparkle for a while.

a ‘small things‘ post is the perfect thing to end the year with i think. this year has been pretty rubbish personally, and obviously globally too. but of course there have been good things and wonderful moments too.

for as long as i can remember i have strived to be grateful for things big and small, and to be vigilant and aware of little moments and things most might take for granted. i’m so glad i actually started writing some of these things down in the form of these posts, because it’s lovely (for me, anyway) to look back on them.
