Maybe love really is in the air. Or maybe I’m just feeling overly mushy.
At any rate, I would like to take a few minutes to simply thank everyone that has ever read this blog.
Whether you roll your eyes at it, skim it, look forward to it, judge it, or proofread it, I want to thank you.
You see, I would do this anyway. I would write my fingers to the bone. I would stay up late at night and pour out words. I would talk about myself in a less than admirable light. That’s because I have to do this. I can’t survive without writing. But you? You don’t have to read it. And yet you do. Maybe not every night, but enough nights that I notice. And you don’t have to hit “like,” but you do. You make me feel like what I’m doing matters to someone.
In today’s world, we’re told that we don’t know how to make a difference that isn’t clicking something on a screen. This “clicktivism” is how we show our support for everything, and that we should really be out there doing something. Fighting on the front lines of injustice.
Well, I’m here to say that your clicks mean something. And any “like” you give anyone: to a selfie, to a post, to a video, matters. And I can’t begin to articulate what yours mean to me.
So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Even if you feel completely unproductive and a failure at the end of the day, know that I am forever in your debt and that you matter to me.
Happy Valentine’s Day. Know that you are loved.
