Blisschick is Two & Not So Terrible
(One of my favorite tulips.)
Last night, I awoke in the middle of the night and realized, "Crap! Today was my blog's 2nd anniversary!"
Yep. I've been writing Blisschick since April 15th, 2008.
What I find most startling about that first post is that at the end of it, I ask this question:
When was the last time you turned the music up really loud and danced in your living room until you sweat?
When I wrote that, I couldn't have told you the last time I had done this very thing. When I wrote that, I thought I was just...writing. You know, asking other people questions to get them thinking.
I snort at myself as I write this now.
If I were a novel, can we say "foreshadowing?"
I'm not a novel, but I do believe I am a slice of something huge and divine and that when I was born, "dancer" was stamped on my heart and soul.
Through all the depression and the anxiety and the not really wanting to live, that word kept being whispered inside of me.
One day, I was finally able to hear.
I think of all the things that could have happened. I think of the chain of events that gave me my life back and I shudder at the fragility of it all.
This blog, that post, that question...they have all been links in that chain. As have all the amazing relationships I have had the privilege to experience because of this "virtual" world of ideas and imagination and possibility and belief.
