Today SS turns one! A year ago I wrote this post that launched my blog into the online world, and I have so much to be thankful for because of it. But what I really have to be thankful for is all of you.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure how long Sincerely, Skin would last. You see, the minute I get bored with something I’m done with it, and I was sure that the excitement of writing a blog would eventually fade for me. Of course, there were often moments when I was bored with SS – some days it didn’t seem all that important for me to get up an article on nutrition or fitness or skin care. Why did it matter?
But then I’d get an email from one of you – my readers – and you’d inspire me all over again. You’d tell me just how much I’d started to change your life by helping you to focus on whole body wellbeing, or you’d tell me how you finally felt beautiful in front of your spouse because your skin was starting to clear up, or you’d just come to me completely defeated and ask for advice. Sometimes you’d even write me from the other side of the world just to say hi. It’s because of YOU that SS is celebrating its first birthday. There’s something so liberating about pouring yourself into something that’s purely yours. But there’s something even more magical that happens when you start to see that the fruits of your labour are doing far more for others than they are for you.
So thank you all for contributing to the success that Sincerely, Skin is becoming. It’s been so rewarding to see this virtual baby of mine grow over the first year, and I can’t wait to see it grow even more in the second.
