I am such a sucker for accolades and awards and gold stars.
I’m not too crazy about the emotional energy I devote to achieving the same. It’s a tricky place, this acknowledgement business. It can take me away from more important things like acceptance and creativity and into darker spots filled with judgement and anxiety.
It’s time, therefore, to declare my blog an award-free zone. I know that if you like what you read here on my blog, you can tell me so in the comments or you can click “like”.
I will continue my practice of referring to your work in my posts as they inspire me. You do inspire me, in more ways than I can possibly express.
