Exciting things are happening here at Learn with Jenny. Lot’s of behind the scenes work is coming together thanks to you and this community that has grown over the past several months. Last week I asked for your feedback about this blog. I was overwhelmed with the responses and emails that I received.
I came away inspired by this community. I knew you were great, but oh my some of these emails just pierced my soul.
This was one of my favorite excerpts from an email I received:
“I come to your site every morning not only for you but for the comments left by your lovelies. Your lovelies are people who are searching to be better people and want to be surrounded by other lovelies who want to make their lives and the lives of others better. Please don’t stop writing, Jenny. You and your lovelies inspire me to be the best person possible. After 35 years, I realize that I can make a difference in the lives of my family, friends, and strangers. I have been sitting on the sidelines for my entire life watching others live their dreams. You and your lovelies make me feel it’s possible to have that for myself. I have read every post and every comment and it’s real and refreshing – not just your voice, but their voices too.”
Ok, first of all I have been referring to you as lovelies all weekend long. The thought makes me smile. One person can make a difference, but there is such power when many of us work together. Something is building in this community of readers that is making me bubble with excitement. I think this community is far greater and more powerful than I realized! Real, authentic people who want to make their families, neighborhoods, and this world a better place.
So thank you. Thank you for taking the time to encourage me and others with your comments and emails. And please comment. I treasure them, but it is clear that other readers treasure them more than I ever realized was possible.
I want to see this community grow. That is big step for me. You see, I wasn’t certain that’s originally what I desired. But now, because of your encouragement and some fervent prayer, I have no doubt that what I’m being called to do. And it’s going to happen friends. So tell your friends who are positive to come here. And tell your friends that are negative to come here – we all need encouragement, right?
So many great things are happening but I won’t overload you today.
After the great response to Sam’s story yesterday, I am going to start a series where I share your stories every Sunday. I think there is tremendous power and encouragement that can come when we make ourselves vulnerable to show others how we are overcoming obstacles and trying to live a full and meaningful life. If you would like to submit your story, please email me your post at email@example.com. Please have the story be limited to 800 words and include at least one, preferably two pictures to fit with your post. I’m so excited about this! I have other exciting things in the works and will share those very soon.
Yes, I am excited about accomplishing items off my life list. I’m more energized than ever. But I’m more excited seeing others inspired to finally get off the bleachers, starting living life, and doing so with a spirit of gratitude. Do you see the blessings that are coming full circle?
Let’s encourage one another. You lovelies are indeed a blessing to me.
Blessings sweet friends – JennyTweet
