In Gratitude

My hands on my chest in gratitude.

Around the first of every month, I check my website traffic. I check page views, visits, which pages people are reading, how people find me, and from what part of the world they reside. I don’t usually share website traffic here on the blog, but today I feel called to bring it up.

I used to be a financial analyst, so the website’s charts and statistics are easy, if not fun, for me to review. The data is available to me, but I don’t use it for strategy or to plan content. I write what I feel like writing. I share what’s happening with me, what I’m learning through my spiritual awakening, and what I experienced with breast cancer. I write to share my wisdom in the hopes it may help someone experiencing something similar. I write to be of service to the collective and because this was the sort of thing I wish existed when I needed to hear it. I also write because I enjoy writing and co-creating with Spirit.

With all that said, I do look to see if anyone is reading, and to see if it is still serving a purpose for me to continue writing this blog. I also check to determine if I want to renew my website and continue with the blog. The thing that made me want to share the background information about the traffic is…the traffic. You, reading now, and all of you that read my blog.

The traffic to my website and specifically my blog in recent months is breaking records and I am so grateful to you and to everyone who reads it. Over 5,500 of you visit my website each month. People from 55 countries read my blog. I am so very grateful to all of you.

I know you have a lot going on in your life. I know that you are being pulled in many directions. You could be doing so many other things, and you choose to come here and read my blog posts. I am grateful to you for spending your time and energy reading what I write.

Sometimes I wish we could have a two-way conversation, but my website host does not allow comments on blogs. Or, if they do, I have yet to find it. That means we aren’t having a conversation. I write and you read. It works for now, and for that, I am truly, deeply grateful. And, just between us, in my gratitude practice, I send you love.

Today’s image is mine and of me in gratitude for you.

For those of you in the United States, I hope you enjoy your 4th of July Independence Day holiday.

For those of you in other parts of the world, may you be safe and well.

I love you.

Be well,
