A YEAR SPENT WITH YOU.
Today my blog is one year old. And I'd like to share this special day with you all, who so kindly followed my words on this pages, commented my pics and made me feel less alone.
I don't know why so many blogs have their birthday in January (many friends of mine have their blog-birthday in January)... Maybe because when a new year starts, you strongly want something different from the year just passed by, you feel ready to do something new, you want to give your life a change...
At least I think this is what it happened to me a year ago. I felt I had to do something, different from my everyday life, different from my stressing job, something just for me, about what it could make me feeling better.
Last january I had been living in a town different from the one where I was born for 3 years, and sometimes I felt so strongly loneliness that it has been hard. Many of you will understand what I mean, as so much people change place when growing up. Life makes choices for us. What I found difficult in my new life, it has been finding new friends (with capital F, I mean). It's always so different when you're a grown up girl ;-)... And the alchemy you had with girlfirends grown up with you is really difficult to recreate. It's not the same. They've known you since you were at primary school often; they for sure know how you really are and what you really feel. And they will always be your friends, even if far away... but sometimes, in this new town, you feel you have to tell something very important to someone, telling what you have inside looking straight at the eyes, and you realize you haven't anyone.
Writing this blog, gave me the opportunity to know so much people and, incredibly, to feel the alchemy again (even if 33!), and feel less alone. I don't know where this blog-adventure will bring me, realistically I would say nowhere ;-), but I'm sure that much of the people I've met on the web, will remain, and that's a big goal, it makes my blog worth going on!
I want to dedicate this post to all my friends, to the ones I've left here and there, but that are always in my thoughts and always will be friends, and the new special ones found on the blogosphere. So, hurry up, help yourself and take a piece of cake! :-)
