A reflection, 2016

It’s that time of year again where I get to reflect on my year with the Diary. I still can’t believe the Diary is into its 7th year. It’s been a busy year for the Diary and as we look to 2017 we must continue to open our minds to life’s possibilities and how we can emotionally continue to make our lives better.

As 2017 is in sight and my blogs continue to be my self-help tool, the Diary continues to be my focus. Away from my family, my site has become my primary focus, a pleasant distraction. It continues to help me focus, so that I get to block out any bad thoughts that keep coming back.

Through necessity over the years, I’ve had to learn how to deal with my life and although the pressure and responsibility with the contents of my blogs are there, I believe those pressures far outweigh calling time on my blog. I simply choose not to let those pressures interfere with my blogs and how I write.

There are no second chances on what I write. Because my blogs are in the public domain the pressure is always there, but I choose not to see it as pressure. I have loved the opportunity, but my site isn’t just about me. It’s something we can all be instrumental in and share being part of.

The site continues to be a place of healing and sanctuary; somewhere we can either just read or reach out, be ourselves and in the process meet other like minded individuals, who understand each other and each other’s problems.

I would like to use this opportunity to thank those who have supported me this year, through reading my blogs and to friends who have also responded on my blogs. I look forward to your continued support in 2017.

  1. Your site is a beacon of positivity in an otherwise increasingly dangerous and foggy world. Thank you for The CP Diary and I wish it continued success for 2017.

    1. Thank you and for your support in 2016. I couldn’t continue to do what I do without your responses and responses like yours. I am pleased you see the site as a beacon of positivity.

  2. Yes, hard to believe that another year has flown by.

    I’m thinking that it does seem to go a lot faster as you get older, which has happened seemingly overnight. I know I have missed out on so much in my life, but I can’t focus on that since I wasted so many years doing that already.

    I lived in the only way I knew, which was to be an extreme people pleaser even though I despised every second of it. Living my own life never seemed to be an option even though it is what most people do.

    I don’t like to use the term resolutions, but if I did have one for 2017, not being such a people pleaser would be on the top of the list.

    Thanks for having such a wonderful blog that seems to have subjects that usually mirror my issues at the time. Happy New Year.

    1. Happy New Year Randy. I’m pleased my blogs are helping you too. You’re very welcome.

      Yes, I tend not to use the term resolutions either. I tend to work on trying to make myself better, because if we work on being better people, we will automatically want to change.

      The trouble with resolutions is we never stick to them. If we continue to work on ourselves I believe if we choose to make a resolution we will go through with it. It’s a term we tend to use ‘loosely,’ with good intent.

  3. In 2016, you gave us calm and clarity in a world void of those things. What you did was make it plain that we are rich without a private yacht, but abundantly rich in spirit.

    I thank you, and I look forward to reading the CP Diary for next one hundred years.

    Happy New Year!

    1. Happy New Year Tim. Yes, without calm and clarity we will only have chaos, but I have you to thank Tim, because without your support I couldn’t do what I do with the Diary.

      Hopefully, in 2017 I will continue to produce even more blogs that will show us a different way to think as well as bringing more calm and clarity into our lives.

      I am grateful to have you in my life like this and to have your support. Thank you.
