When I told my best friend that I was serious about starting a blog, one of the first questions she asked was if I aimed to gain a large following. I responded by saying, “No, I just want to reach one heart, at least.” Although this response made me quite proud, what my best friend didn’t know was that if she had asked me this question a month before she would have gotten the complete opposite of that response. This was a question that I had wrestled with on my own, and it almost hindered me from starting the blog; I was so nervous that not a lot of people would read, until God checked me, as usual. He reminded me that my focus was sooo off, what if I had a thousand followers and none but one got the message.
As creators, we’re often so focused on the 1000 people who we hope will read our posts or listen to our music that we forget about the people who are already supporting us. Imagine if we were to plant a seed in one person’s life and they used it to inspire and transform the lives of many others. Wouldn’t that be more satisfying? This thought is so real and it encourages me to focus on that 1 person before the 1000, daily.
My intention is to plant seeds of encouragement, change, and reassurance in someone’s life so that they can be the best version of themselves. If I can have a positive impact on at least one person’s life then I know that I am doing something right.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that I don’t want many people to read Journeying Soul because that would be a lie. I dedicate a lot of time to this platform and it makes me so happy to see people read and relate to the messages that I put out there. I just have a changed perspective when it comes to reaching people through my work. One thing that I have learned is that once I show up and give 100 %, everything else will fall into place.
P.S. Happy first day of spring darlings! 🌷🐣☀️
