I can’t believe that Not Merely Living is three years old today. To celebrate, I’m giving away one of my favorite luxuries in the world: Poco Dolce Chocolate. This is not a sponsored post. I just love this chocolate desperately, and I couldn’t think of a better gift to give away to celebrate NML’s third birthday.
When I started writing this blog I was such a different person in such a different place, and yet I was so much the same. When I reread my birthday post from last year, I thought, Hey. I like that girl. I’m proud of her.
What is this space really? It’s a place where I can’t fully show you my whole self because it’s public, and there are private sides of my life and people connected to me and it wouldn’t be fair to tell all of my/their/our secrets. And that’s hard for me, because writing in this space is like writing to an old friend. It’s hard to not show my whole self to an old friend. At the same time, this space helps me to grow every day. It’s a chronicle of a journey, my ship’s log, and more than that, it’s the horizon.
Most of all, today on NML’s birthday, I really just to say thank you to you! Knowing you are out there and that I am not alone has made all the difference.
To steal from last year’s birthday post:
Thanks for being on this journey with me and inspiring me to dream bigger. Let’s do it together.
I’m making a wish now and blowing out the candles. Let’s close our eyes together for just a second and just dream.
Thanks for another awesome year.
