My Treasures Are My Blessings

An open treasure chest rests against a white background. The word 'treasure' is scribed in cursive upon a white plaque set before it. The treasures within it consist of a blue seahorse, pink stones, purple stones, colorful necklaces and gold coins.

I told you all in this post that each one of you is a Treasure. It’s true. But not only are you Treasures, you are blessings beyond anything you could possibly comprehend. The lack of comprehension comes not from lack of intelligence, but merely because you cannot read my mind or know my heart unless I choose to share it.

Here is my heart.

When I began this motivational speaking journey, I knew it was going to be an uphill climb. I was prepared for it, because I knew the success I wanted wasn’t going to simply tumble into my lap. I knew I was going to have to work hard at it, and I know I have a long way to go before any of my speaking daydreams transcend the barrier between fantasy and reality.

What I didn’t expect was for my words to capture so much interest in such a short amount of time. This blog will be a month old on Monday. A month. Only thirty days since my very first post, and already there are nearly eighty of you following and reading what I have to share. It is impossible for me to convey in words what your support means to me. There have been days within this past month when I’ve run my screen reader over my subscription counter and been brought to tears at its growth.

I told myself when I began this blog that if I could reach just one person, make a difference in just one life, then I would be a success. I feel like a success seventy-seven times over. Mine has not been an easy life, and I know this journey won’t be easy either. But I have never experienced such an outpouring of support and interest in what I have to say as I’ve experienced over the past month. Each one of you means something so special to me, because you are my first Treasures. You are the ones who believed in me without incentives like giveaways, without fantastic visual themes or graphics, without a podcast, without a Youtube channel. You’re believing in the woman behind the words, even when you can’t see or hear her.

My Treasures, my blessings, thank you. Thank you for looking my way and seeing beyond the blindness to something beautiful. Drawing back that veil is what this journey, this blog, this entire fledgling career is all about. I feel so blessed, and I am so grateful for every single one of you. We’re going to have an incredible 2019 together.

I love you all.

    I know I wouldn’t be anywhere without SiWo. Thank you, every single one of you, for sharing this journey with me, and of course, to SiWo for making it so much more fun than it might have otherwise been.

    Please forgive me if reblogging messes with format. I’m trying this as it’s a bit easier and more accessible, but I can’t preview the outcome, so bear with me, my Treasures. You’re all amazing.
