My Blog's 100th Post And My Positive Counterpoint
We are celebrating, that's for sure!
When I began blogging, I thought this day would never come. One hundred posts were way beyond reason! What in the world would I write about? How would I ever get to ten posts, let alone 100? Who would ever want to read what I have to say? What did I have to say? I thought if I ever did make it this far, I would stop and retire the blog. I would have had my say! Well. here I am at this big milestone!
So many things have changed for us. Married a long time means things could become mundane or way too predictable. Enter ttwd/dd and all becomes new and interesting. We have rekindled our sex lives and love it a lot. Lingerie has once again become very important especially when Jack is peeling away those lacy essentials. Jack's loving boot camp continues to smooth out the upcoming times away. We have real and true peace at home. Jack loves how mellow I have become, how I submit to him and lean in. I relish pleasing him and he pleasing me. He takes care of my grouchies and smooths things out.
I especially enjoy how we communicate with one another in low, quiet voices. Jack is quick to compliment how I respect his decision making and he respects how we jointly problem solve without heated debate or argument. I have become a better listener and work daily on not interrupting as we discuss things.
Jack holds the authority and welcomes me as his partner. It is a wonderful way to lead into the next years of our marriage. We are back to laughing, loving and enjoying one another. I have read through the blog and can see the changes that have occurred in both of us. I am more submissive and he appreciates that. I am more agreeable leaning in to his decisions for the most part.
As I mark this milestone, I am not sure what will happen next here. What more is there to say?
The journey has been worthy even though it has been painful sometimes. We have found our way and it suites us well. We appreciate your company on our journey.
I am not sure what will happen next, but I thank you for your support and comments. Happy # 100 !
A postscript counterpoint as there are some things I must say to my readers,
It is easy to be negative when things aren't going your way. It is mean and unkind. When bloggers decide to go private, the comments made on their blogs are written by the same people over and over again. Unless you really aren't blogging at all. Being negative in commenting is wrong. If a person has a bone to pick, email the blogger. It is the polite thing to do. In my own defense, I have never made a unkind or harsh comment on any blog.
My "behind the blog" statements always direct those of you who choose to write so we can get to know one another better.
I want to assure my readers that I do sincerely appreicate those who take the time to write, ask questions and stay to become friends. Many of you are now on journeys of your own and five of you have become bloggers that I enjoy. Women need friends in this lifestyle and as I have said before, we need to support and encourage one another. The friends I have made are real and important. If you do not like how I manage my blog, please discontinue reading it.
Meanwhile, I celebrate a full year of ttwd/dd blogging and getting to know so many of you on this 100th post.
Thank you, L for your big search!
