blog_anniversary1I’m a little late on this post, but it still means the same to me. One of the things I always preach is appreciating and recognizing EVERY milestone you have in life. You don’t have to throw a party every time, but a simple recognition of what you’ve achieved is important. It helps you remember the times that aren’t as bright in between serve as reminders that a brighter day will always come. I don’t ever want to get to distant from myself that I can’t appreciate each and every milestone.

Today I wanted to recognize that on this day, one year and thirteen days ago, I started this blog: Passion Living Out Loud. My blog is finally one years old! Yay!!! It’s the all in all about living your passion out loud in my opinion and my experiences.

I started Passion Living Out Loud as a commitment to myself to do more non-fictional writing. I also wanted to spread the news of what living your passion out loud could do for you. One year later, my point still reigns true. I’m the happiest I’ve been and I am even more convinced that if I continue to follow my passion, happiness will ALWAYS be in my grasp, heck it may NEVER leave.

I’ve shared so many different aspects of following your passion on this blog. I’ve written step by step tips on living a passionate life. I’ve stressed using your passion for the benefit of others; giving back. I’ve discussed never giving up and always staying the course. I’ve even shared others passionate stories to prove that my theory is not crazy after all… 😉 After 116 posts to date (this one makes 117), the one thing I’m proud to say is that I’ve hopefully encouraged some people, ignited some passions, and proved that a person can create their own happiness. If you don’t take anything else from this post or any other post you ever read on my blog, remember that you are the author of your happiness. Your passion was given to you to make apart of your daily living. It’s yours and can’t be taken away, only ignored by you awaiting the moment you choose LIVE OUT LOUD! Below I’ve listed a few of my favorite posts and readers’ best choices. Feel free to comment, share, or just re-read for some daily inspiration.

Thank you to EVERYONE that has ever stopped by this page, ‘liked’ a post, shared with someone else or commented. Your actions have become nothing more than apart of the fire that stays lit under my feet. They help to keep me going and give me more reason to continue LIVING MY PASSION OUT LOUD!
