Life goes on. Still. Always

I have spent some time yesterday and today, trying to catch up with the blogs I follow.  That’s why some of you will find a sudden ton of notifications of likes and comments from me.

I still have to work, of course so I’m afraid it’s not humanly possible to catch up with all of them so if I missed yours, my apologies.  I’ll try my best to stay up to date in the future.

So many wonderful posts I missed.  I go from hysterical laughs to almost tears.  But good to know [almost] everybody is still hanging in there.

I’m looking back at the last three months and I find it amazing how much crap we all go through every day.  And yes, here’re we are still.

And that reminds me of a picture I saw on Facebook yesterday.  One of those things that became very popular.  It seems like all people do on Facebook is post quotes or someecards.  Not that I have anything against them.  Most of them are hilarious.  And I always appreciate anything that causes a good laugh or a smile.  But I disgress.  Here’s the quote

You don’t know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have

Thank you!


Fancy that.

I have A HUNDRED followers!

I find it humbling.  Never, in my wildest dreams, I thought that my musings would be of any interest for anyone other than me.  Specially considering that most of the time, my posts are sad or painful to read.  And when they’re not sad, they blatantly silly.

So, I want to thank each one of you my wonderful followers.  Thank you for stopping by, which in turn gave me the opportunity to find your blog and learning about you as well.  It is great to share laughs, and giggles, and tears and all the things that make life, life.  The good ones and the bad ones.

A while back, I also got this.  I know that in the big scheme of things it is not much but it feels good nonetheless.  So thank you for liking my posts too.  According to WP, the current tally is 1,282.  I think that’s pretty cool.

And finally, I have received a number of blogging awards in the last month or so.  I have been delinquent and not done my part.  I apologize for that.  If you nominated me for an award and haven’t heard back from me yet, I would really appreciated if you reminded me about it.  I like responding and playing my part.  It’s a nice way to learn about other bloggers and to show appreciation to those blogger we admire for whatever reason.  So please, do not hesitate to comment here with a link to the award.  I’ll be more than happy to oblige if you remind me.

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

Me, inspiring?

Well, Monday came and went and I barely had a chance to sit down and type. Whatever little time I had, I spent it reading your fabulous blogs.

And while doing that, I found out with great joy that I had a little great award waiting for me!!

One that I had seen often in other blogs but never thought I’d see on my own. So, thank you all-knowing dad. Both for the pleasant surprise and for the award itself. I started a blog because I felt that all the thoughts I had inside were gonna make me implode after so many years of keeping them inside, always burning like coal that will never die. It was mostly an outlet, a place to write the things I could never say out loud. In time, I realized that there were also good things inside me that never saw the light either and pretty soon, there was silliness and laughter too. And that felt good!
