Loving What I Do

August 30, 2012

Even though yesterday was a tad insane, I’d say 95% of the time I absolutely love what I do. I enjoy writing through Bella’s nap, trying to come up with different perspectives on things for posts, researching military ideas I didn’t know about. It’s been an amazing past few months finally being able to do this. Although I have off days, just like everyone, I am always thankful for the opportunities I have to do what I love.

This past week and then some, I’ve written about both the adoption and why I write as openly as I do about our lives and my feelings. It’s not always easy – there has been a lot of flack over the past 2 1/2 years of me blogging that would cause me to hesitate sharing anymore. I’m so glad I did and I still do.

I get emails from people saying that sharing my story has changed their lives – but you have to know that when you write me with your story or encouraging words,

it changes mine. 

I don’t know what I would have done the last few months without women who have come alongside me with similar stories of loss or simply aching hearts for what life handed us, and chose to be the encouragement and support we needed. Isolated as we are a lot of the time, I’ve managed to heal from the words of people hundreds and thousands of miles away.

So thank you. For supporting me here, on Babble, on Military Family. For the likes, comments, retweets, shares, and emails you all take your time to do. It matters to us.

    This is a big THANK YOU to you, Diana. I absolutely love your blog. You are an inspiration to me, I always connect to your posts (and am often in tears) and would vote for you to be president if I could (I’m a Canadian mama;-)

    I often feel the same way-I didn’t have the career I thought I would but writing is so therapeutic for me that I am so blessed to do it every day. Thanks for sharing!

    I am not a mother, but I found your blog not long after my Dad died last year. And it has been a great encouragement to me. There is something about sharing our struggles that can be so uplifting. I know that writing about losing my Dad has helped me, and the comments people leave on my blog mean so much. I’m glad that others (and myself) have taken a small part in helping you heal also!! God bless you guys.

    I absolutely love your blog! I read just about every posting. I have started my own simply because I can see how sharing YOUR story might change people, Than maybe sharing MY story of my sons journey might help too (He was born at 30 weeks). Thank you SO much for sharing.
