But I usually keep up on my Google reader. And today this post brought a tear to my eye.
I am often brought to tears by the authors of these blogs. Mothers. Sisters. Fathers. Observers. Comentators. Creative genius'. Optimists. People I've never met. Most of whom I wouldn't recognize on the street.
The internet is a virtual labyrinth of (mis)information, polar extremes of both the lovely and the repulsive variety. You can find a lot of garbage and waste a LOT of time.
But inspiration abounds. My connection to these amazing women (and occasionally men) are palpable. They make me feel less alone in my insecurities as a mother, sister, friend, human being.
I feel a kinship with their stories of success and failure. I am constantly amazed at their pursuit of a better self. They leave me with the feeling that anything is possible. They make me want to be a better person.
Thank you for inspiring me.
Thank you for sharing your story.
Thank you for writing.
