Like a comet pulled from orbit As it passes a sun, Like a stream that meets a boulder Halfway through the wood. Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better But because I knew you. I have been changed for good.
That’s from one of my favorite songs in Wicked — “For Good”. This is so true. Every encounter brings a gift. Every connection creates a change. Whether you are changed for the better or not, it is all up to you. This song comes to mind as I think of the many inspired moments and posts I’ve written that came out of reading another blog post or while leaving a comment for another blogger.
Our Blogging101 assignment today was about writing a post that builds on one of the comments I left yesterday. The truth is, before this assignment, I’ve been thinking of several blog posts (and comments I wrote) that I wanted to write more about in my blog. Some of them not related at all to the original intent of this blog, but their stories have given me so much inspiration.
So, I created this new page “INSPIRATIONS” as the place where I put all my posts that have been inspired by other blogs. The “reblogs” and “pingbacks”. The exchanges with other bloggers. Blogs I’d like to feature. Bloggers I’d like to give a shout-out to.
I started this blog with a hope that the things I write can bring inspiration to the readers. What I discovered at this point in my blogging journey is that I’m the one getting the inspiration. This page will be for the blogging community that has been so positive and supportive and full of love. Good vibes to you all!
…people come into our lives For a reason Bringing something we must learn. And we are lead to those Who help us most to grow if we let them. And we help them in return. Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true But I know I’m who I am today Because I knew you.
