The shoutout this week is to a reader named Nehal, who wrote me an email:
It’s been a long time since you have sent any of your stories.
I love your stories and I am desperately looking forward to hearing from you.”
Hi Nehal! Sorry for being gone so long and leaving you all without any stories to read here.
To be honest I had fallen into a depression due to various personal things and stopped writing about stories for a while.
Which anyone who has been following this blog knows is totally crazy. Stories and writing about them have saved me more times than I can count …not to mention they were the whole reason I started this blog back in 2008.
Well I snapped out of that real quick when I read Nehal’s email and started thinking about things. I realized I needed to start exploring stories again and sharing them here like in the old days.
I actually felt a little better right away, like I had let light back into my life again or something.
Let this be a lesson to me and anyone reading this: if you are having troubles in your life you need *more* stories, not less.
Life is definitely better with stories!
