Celebrating My 6-Year Anniversary and Being Chosen as Blog of the Week


WordPress notified me that today is my 6-year anniversay on the blogging platform. I think back to where I was 6 years ago and cringe:

It was December 2008. I was trapped inside a toxic relationship that I was unable to escape. I feared stepping out. I feared making the wrong decision. I feared being hasty. I feared I was being judgmental. I feared my choices, identity and boundaries. I was a scared and desperate wreck and had turned into someone I no longer recognized.

I am so thankful to no longer be in that foreign place of struggle, shame and attachment to suffering. Although not the only tool to help awaken me to the many wrong turns I took and delusions I stubbornly held onto for far too long, this blog has been invaluable on my journey into finding myself.

And to make the news of my anniversary even more special, Blog Momma pulled “A Yoginin Tramsformed” from her hat on Monday and declared it Blog of the Week!

Have a blessed week and namaste!

Blog of the Week at Blog Mommas!

Blog Momma Halloween Blog of the WeekI have spent the past couple of days waiting out Hurricane Sandy at my Mom’s house in the mountains of western Maryland. Luckily, her home was only hit with minimal rain and wind. No snow, either! I have lots to write about in the next few days and wanted to let everyone know about Paula’s Pontifications being featured as the Blog of the Week at Blog Mommas. (The creator of the directory composed the image above. I love it! But how did she know I am secretly fascinated by hummingbirds? How did you know, A?)

Check out the directory. There are many, many blogs listed written by moms (and dads, too) on just about any topic you can imagine. Namaste!
