→ a way to cure sadness is through gratitude
I was having a real terrible day and I was moping and feeling sorry for myself when someone I love very much told me I should make a list of things that I love and I’m grateful for and focus on them instead on what was making me sad, since one way to cure sadness and self-pity is through gratitude. And one of the things in my list was this blog and all the wonderful people I’ve met through it. So excuse my emo words, but here they come!
Recently this blog turned one, reached 2,5k followers and over 50k views. @writings-by-cl also recently reached 1k followers and 10k views. So I would like to thank you, my lovely reader, from the bottom of my heart! I don’t mean to brag about my follower account, if you have been here for a while you know that I don’t do things that way.
What I want with this post is to show love, gratitude and appreciation towards all the amazing people that have been reading my stories and making this journey worthwhile, and if you are here, following my blogs and reading this, you are included among them for sure.
My goal has always been to become a better writer and to have fun while writing fanfic. Along the way I also felt the need to give some space in my blog for those who are underappreciated. It’s not something I can say I achieved yet; it’s more of a ‘compass’ to keep me on track on why I started this blog in the first place and remind me what I’m still doing here whenever I feel down.
