The original intent of this blog was to apply the principles of mindfulness to my life’s emotionally challenging experiences and process them via writing.
I have to admit. I never meant for this blog to benefit others (in a direct or indirect way).
But it has.
The blog has gained an audience of people who, I believe, found themselves identifying with my “stuck on…” experiences.
And, enjoy learning how I get through them.
In fact, over the past few months, many people have even shared with me their own personal “stuck on …” experiences and expressed how this blog encouraged or inspired them to get through them.
Today, a friend of mine shared her potentially emotionally challenging experience that she got through quite gracefully and proudly with only a moment of “stuck on…”.
I responded, “That would have been a great post!”
Which made me wonder: Why don’t I request the readers of my blog to share their stories with me?
And, in turn, I would post it for others to read, respond to, and benefit from.
Because in the end, it’s appearing to me that this is what this blog was meant to be after all:
A light for all to benefit from.
So, please consider (friend from today and all others!), the next time you find yourself “stuck on something” and find yourself using mindfulness principles to get through it, consider sharing it with me (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that I can share it with others.
