Change, whether it's the gradual shift in seasons, or sudden like an unpredictable storm, it's bound to happen. The changes in my own life over the past year and a half, are obvious when I take to the time to reflect. And each one held its own set of struggles and benefits.
There is a change today in the name of this blog, from "One Magical Moment Per Day," to simply "Magical Moments." For 582 days, I've made an effort to choose one positive moment to write, sing, or video about and share with whoever feels compelled to follow this blog. And while I no doubt will experience numerous more of these moments on a daily basis, I've decided to lessen my posts.
I began this blog during a time when I needed accountability within myself to choose to see the positive aspects and beauty throughout difficult situations. My original intent was to post one of these moments every day for one year. When a year came and went, I still felt like I had much more in me, and it was not time to stop. And I'm glad that I didn't because I have learned an enormous amount about finding inspiration in things that 2 years ago, I would have glanced right past. But forcing myself to sit with those moments, sort them out, write about, and share them, has given me insight, encouragement, and pride I would not have otherwise known.
So while I continue to search for, experience, and share these magical moments, I will no longer be doing so every day. Thank you to those of you who follow this blog, or just stop by when you can. I'm certain I wouldn't have kept it up this long if not for the readers and encouraging feedback.
