No fanfare as usual. Not in the mood for all that.
Just acknowledging the day.
And I am more reflective than my usual giddy.
4 years ago, I started something new, the House of LadyLee. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that it would have been this important to me, or for that matter, gone on this long.
And I would have never thought that I would make such good friends through this blog... and of course, enemies.
But all and all, it has been a great experience.
I started this blog when I was 35 years old. And I will be turning 40 soon.
Today marks my 657th post. So that means you've caught glimpes of 657 pieces of me - my thoughts, my feelings, my dreams, my joys, my pains... and a BUNCH of funny stuff.
And I will continue to do so...
What has been the take home message here for myself?
I have a wonderful life. I love my life and who I am. I am a wonderfully unique individual, with all my ups and downs, my ins and outs. I have my own lane in life, a lane especially designated to me, to navigate the best way I can. This means I don't have to worry about impressing anyone, making up craziness, creating drama on blog... none of that.
I can simply enjoy being me...
LadyLee, Dr. LadyLee, Lee, Lisa, Oldgirl...
This is a place that I can just be myself.
And I am satisfied with me and who I am.
Not many people can say that, can they?
I would like to thank all of you for your support over the years. I STILL have no idea why people would read my random thoughts and stories, as House of LadyLee is for LadyLee's pleasure.
It is icing on the cake that my readers take pleasure in it too. I have a lot of lurkers, and it trips me out to get emails from them, or even when folks I see on a regular basis talk to me about something they read on my blog.
I am grateful for that. If I can make you laugh or pontificate, even for a spare moment, then that is a good thing. It means I've made a difference, in some small way indeed.
So I thank you for that.
So, thanks to some browbeaters (lol), I am posting more often, and that will continue. No big changes there.
Like I said, no fanfare today. Just my thoughts.
And my many thanks to you for supporting me...
LadyLee... The Origianl Oldgirl.
And you make sure to do whatever it is you love to do... with purpose.
