Usually, I don’t write on these days, but this is not the only reason my words are often rosy. Although this blog was initially intended for writing about a practical program that can be applicable to anyone, it has grown more personal over the course of the year in which I maintained it. And although I have revealed a lot about myself, these revelations remain hidden between my words, cloaked with my “enlightenment” and intellectual detachment. But any person whose creditability is worth anything has to realize, and acknowledge on realization, that this whole thing could be just a charade to hide my warts, my vulnerabilities.
With this realization comes the admiration of the bravery one of the blog readers has constantly shown. As hard as it is to write about personal “faults” publicly to total strangers, she has been relentlessly exposing her “weaknesses” in front of everyone and baring her soul for all of us to see. She has put her dragons under the spot light with nowhere for them to hide. This does not only show bravery, but also strength of character that is hard to find.
Carol, I am not TIME magazine to award you “Woman of The Year” title, all I can give you is a virtual “Badge of Bravery” from me for whatever it is worth. I raise my hat to you and I hope that I will live until the day I can be as brave as you are. I have no doubt that you will one day achieve all what you desire because you have all what it takes to get there. Well done my friend, if I am allowed to call you that.
At this point and after awarding my first badge, and surviving my first year on the blog sphere, I will say to all of you “That’s all for this year Folks”. I wish you happy holidays, and a fantastic New Year with hopefully more hopeful writings from me.
I see light blog
