Time Flies ~ On Angel's Wings


I can't believe its been a year since my little trembling fingers started clicking on the keyboard in hopes of trying to release the frustration filled days that had become my life and to help with rebuilding my writing and expression skills.

When I first started blogging March 1, 2010 ~ I had no idea/belief that a year later I would still be clicking away on my keyboard. Nor had I imagined the impact that blogging would have on me. Looking back over this past year, I can say without a doubt that blogging saved me (there were some very dark times that I did not share, perhaps one day).

I may not have realized the power of BlogLand but my Angels sure did ~ they always seemed to connect me with just the right BlogFriend who was writing about something that I needed to read. Or sometimes I found myself sharing more about me than I had expected ~ and then I would get a comment or email from someone saying how much that post had made a positive difference to them.


This past year BlogLand has reached and touched me, when psychologists failed; given me encouragement and support, when family and friends could not; forced me to look at the half full glass, when all I could see was emptiness; but most of all it has inspired me to give back, stay postive, stick with something and the desire to move forward.

Blogging is something that I would not have entered into pre-accident ~ after all I was busy with my High Heeled Life. But, Blogging is certainly part of my post-accident life and I hope that with help from my Angels I will inspire others to keep going no matter what detours their lives may take.

"Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others" 1 Peter 4:10

P.S. I would like to thank Mr. G. for being the one to remember that I started blogging a year ago! and for encouraging me to write when I can't even get my butt out of bed (he literally brings my lap top upstairs,sets it up on the bed and keeps checking until I start clicking on the key board.)

  3. Congratulations of your first year of blogging. I hear you... blogging is very therapeutic, as is reading other blogs! I keep two of them.. one for fun and one, of course, about my husband's cancer fight. Have a happy Spiritual Sunday, and a wonderful first day of spring!

  6. Dearest Celia, Mr. G and Dolce,

    Well, that's quite a milestone you've reached. Indeed, if it were not those invisible wings that carry us through at times, we'd be sliding off to never-land.
    You certainly have inspired me tremendously and now that we have each our own special angel; we're bonded in a special way. Like your photo with the wings in the clouds... hard to look beyond what you see but we must trust it will be okay. Free and strong enough to soar the inviting blue skies.
    Love you and keep at it; all of you together. None of us can travel this difficult road alone, we owe it to those that love us most and are near us when we're falling from the skies...

    Hugs,

    Mariette

  7. This is such a sweet post. I just started my blog as an outlet to an often frustrating time in college and I hope it does as much for me as it does for you.

    Hope your weekend was relaxing

  8. There are so many different reasons that we all start to write our blogs .. the result though seems to be universal.. We reach out to each other and have a support network.
    I wish i had never deleted my original blog as i kind of lost the swing of it... but slowly I will be back xx
    I hope you continue

  10. Happy Blog anniversary! I read so many blogs but yours has always been one of my favourites because you make me feel as if I have been on this journey with you.
    I have found that blogging has opened the doors to many friendships and you have been someone whose encouragement has kept me writing even when I felt I was losing faith in myself.
    Thank you for being there and thank you Mr G for ensuring that you are there :)

    A huge amount of respect to G for all he's done, what an amazing human being.

    Much love to both of you always.

  15. Blogging is an incredible thing, isn't it? You meet people who sympathize, empathize, have the right thing to say to you to make you feel better, AND who tell you like it is!

  16. Congratulations on your one year blogiversary! I'm glad you're still at it. I was knocked off my high heels, too.. although not quite as traumatically, and you inspire me. I saw your name on the blog hop list, and thought I'd say hi, although I already follow. I'm sorry that I'm often too lazy to comment.

  20. Happy Blog anniversary, angel!!!!
    Words are failing to tell you how glad I am to have found you on blogland and be able to share with you some tears but also some smiles.

    You're a great and courageous woman that makes all the difference in the people you "touch".

    And I've been touched by you, my dear friend.
    Maybe one day I'll be able to give you "that" hug!!!

    Many blessings from the Universe you so deserve it.

    Tons of love
    Sea hugs and sunshine kisses looking for Spring :)

  22. Hi HHL,

    Congratulations of your 1 year blogging anniversary. Your writing inspires and encourages me.

    Life at times, has taken an unexpected turn in my journey and I've discovered that the road is no longed paved, but you and others have helped me focus on trust and faith in the Lord; rather than the circumstances I face.

    Blessings and peace.

  25. Hi, I am your newest follower. I found you through Mondays blog hop and I look forward to coming back. I am new to all this blogging and hopping so it really helps me out if you can come and visit me. Congrats on your one year! I hope some day I will get there as well. I fell off my high heels years ago :) will be back soon to read more of your story.

  26. I can't believe it's just been a year. It seems I've known you longer and we're old friends. :) I attribute this to your openness and honest writing. I wonder how we're guided sometimes and your writings always bring that home to me. You've been a source of joy and inspiration and I know a year from now you will be further amazed where you have taken yourself, with divine help and all on your own. :)

    Happy, happy blogging anniversary.

    xoxo

  32. Wow, you are wonderful. The about me section and this post, speak to your strength as a person. I look forward to reading about your journey. I'm new to blogging, so please stop by!

  33. I stopped by from Totally Tuesday blog hop and just went to read your first post. My father had a massive stroke 11 years ago and lost his former self as well (and we lost that person too). But of course over time he has found his way...not how he would have before, but a way nonetheless. It sounds like you have done the same. I'm so glad that your blog has helped you. I think there is something to be said for feedback from people who can respond objectively to what you say, not having the same emotional ties as those who know and love you so much.

    Congrats on your blogging anniversary!

  36. Happy one year! So great that you have an encouraging Mister! Mine just rolls his eyes when I pull out the laptop now...haha! Not really but he jokes about it being a permanent appendage.

    Have a great week!

  37. I can sure identify with this. I've been blogging for over 3 years now and had no idea what a blessing it would be in my life. I started rather reluctantly, but am quite addicted now. I think it is a good addiction though.
    Thank you for sharing your heart.
    Blessings,
    Charlotte

  39. Happy Blogaversary,

    There is something about blogging that only another blogger can relate to. It is so rewarding and it's like having another life in a Virtual world filled with real, inspiring and encouraging people. A community of uplifting comments and beautiful blogs.

  41. Congratulations on your One Year Blogiversary! I am very glad you began blogging! The day I found your blog I went back through your archives to start from the beginning. I have been so very touched and inspired by you over the past year. From what you have shared about Mr. G over the past year, he sounds like an amazing person too.

    Sending sunshine your way!

  42. Hi. I'm a stylist in LA and I'm totally obsessed with your blog. I'd love if you visited my new blog for multiple posts a day on all things fashion. I just moved to California after graduating back in south with a degree in visual merchandiser. In attempt to get my heel in the door, I've launched a site all about celebrity fashion and the trends that create it. Check out what Brad, Rachel Zoe's former associate shared with me and find out my latest trend report. I'd love the support. I'm following you, I hope you'll do the same. Thanks so much.

    And don't forget to follow on Twitter for all the latest celebrity fashion news, from an LA stylist.

  43. Happy Anniversary! So glad you are back from your break! I, too , have taken several little breaks from my blog once in a while, just to regroup my thoughts and just spend time reading other blogs for insiration and supporting them, too. Before blogging, it seemed like the only real positive energy I was getting in my life was my occassional Oprah thoughtful episode...now all I have to do is open my email and get encouragement from my new friends. I think it has even made me reaccess my non-blog friendships.
    Your blog has certainly been a wonderful and inspirational place for me this year!
