When I checked my WordPress blog “Stats” this morning, I received a notification in the form of a little, orange trophy on the upper right-hand side of my page. To my surprise, I discovered that yesterday was my one-year anniversary of having registered for a WordPress acount.
If you haven’t already noticed, I feel very strongly that one-year anniversaries of certain events are very sentimental. It’s a milestone. Of course, not everything in life needs a one-year celebration. I’m talking about the bigger stuff. The things that have really affected you and continues to affect you.
On a micro-level scale, I’m still always in awe of how much can happen in a month, a week, even a day. Things in life change so often that you can never predict where you will be at any given moment. And this is why I’m recognizing this one-year anniversary of having my blog as quite an accomplishment. For an entire year, I have this collection of events that I’ve recorded and can reflect on through my own words. For an entire year, I’ve committed to up-keeping something that I created myself. Not to sound lame, but this is very exciting to me. I mean, I’m not throwing a party for it, but I am shedding light on this the same way that I’ve shed light on anything else that I felt was compelling to me; by writing it in this blog.
When I look back on past entries that I’ve written, it brings me back to remembering how I felt at a specific moment; it’s an interesting feeling. I’ve always felt that reflection is extremely important. It’s important to remember our lives. If we don’t, then what do we have to show for?
I was on StumbleUpon earlier today (a website/app that populates your categories of interest and brings you to random websites that are relevant) I landed on a website that had a list of “50 questions that you should always ask yourself” One of them, which really hit home for me, was this:
“When all is said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?”
I’ve mentioned before that I’m the kind of person that holds true to anything I tell to anyone, including myself (especially myself). Because honestly, what do our words mean if we don’t take action on them?
This is why I’m recognizing this milestone of my blog’s one-year anniversary. Today I asked myself, “When all is said and done, will I have said more than I’ve done?”
I’m hoping my answer is yes because life is too short to think about the ‘what ifs”. I want to look back and see that I’ve done the things that I told myself I would do.
I’m glad that I have this blog to remind me of the things that I told myself this past year. It helps me remember…

Hi Lindsey 😀 I read that article you posted on facebook earlier, and it was very inspirational! The question you like so much reminds me of something that would be in a song lol. Kudos on your one year on here. I’ve only been on for like a month lol, so I don’t have much. Nor is it as eloquent and interesting as yours is.
Anyway, you look very professional, so I’m sure you’re doing well for yourself! Hope you are well, anyway. Guess I’ll be tuning in from here on out 😉 Best wishes ❤
Thanks, Gabby…That means a lot! I am doing very well and hope you are too over on the West Coast. Best of luck on WordPress. Just have to let the words come to you and you can take it from there. Best regards!
That’s great Lindsey! I am very well over here, thanks for asking! And I’m getting the hang of this blogging thing, slowly but surely 😉
