100 posts in 18 months. If we look at the average, it doesn’t seem exciting. 5.5 posts per month. But the numbers don’t always reflect reality. The reality is often far different from what we see at first glance.
We don’t grow when things are easy. We grow when we face challenges.
Last 18 months, it was a challenging time for me. I was one step from giving up on writing for the rest of my life. I was one step from abandoning my dreams. I was one step from losing all the confidence in myself. All because of a few big mistakes I made while trying to overcome frustration with what was going on around me.
I was really mad at myself that I didn’t foresee the consequences of my actions before the worst happened. My attitude was so short-sighted that I didn’t realize on time that I could hurt so deeply several people with my words. After all, it was too late to explain that my intentions were completely different.
I had to accept a very bitter lesson that came and draw the conclusions. I had to learn to be very careful with all I do and all I say. In order to deal with my pain I started this blog as a healing therapy for myself and as a place where other people could also find a safe haven for themselves.

The last 18 months was a time of a great struggle to stay afloat. I’ve been experiencing alternately moments of doubt and moments of hope. I had to strike the balance and find peace within myself. There were some people who’ve been supporting me during that time, but the hardest work was meant to be done by myself.
My blog was perfectly reflecting those moments. It was clearly visible when I was going through my ups and downs. There were times of longer breaks and there were times of frequent posting. I’ve been missing a stabilization.
100 posts milestone will soon hit another milestone: 100 followers. You might say: “100 is nothing yet to be proud of”. But believe me that for me it’s a great reason to be proud of. I’m proud because these 100 posts mean that I didn’t give up. I’m proud because almost 100 followers mean that what I do has a sense. 100 became a lucky number for me.
You have the power to say: “This is not how my story will end”.
This place made me live again. This place made me believe again. This place gave me hope that nothing is lost forever. This place strengthened me to do whatever it takes to fight for a better future. Even if the healing process is still in place, I feel more empowered than ever to do things I’ve always dreamt about.
100 posts – that’s the time I needed to recover and get back on my feet. Thanks to following a posting schedule, I learn to be consistent not only with my writing but also with my personal development. I keep enhancing the crucial areas of my life. I give myself more credit. I’m grateful for giving my life a new flavor.
