One Hundred

Offering, Pashupatinath, Kathmandu, Nepal

A Mindful Breath began over two years ago as a way to share my photos, ideas and experiences.  This post is number one hundred!  As I began I asked advice of a friend who enjoys subscribing to blogs.  She suggested that I post on a regular schedule at least once a week, publishing on a weekday.  I’m glad I followed her advice as otherwise I doubt I would have continued this long.

Making the commitment to have the post come out every Thursday (except if there were technical difficulties or I was away) meant that often on Wednesday evening I would be sitting down at the computer wondering what I would write about.  I would moan and groan, remind myself that there were absolutely no consequences if I didn’t post, and begin scrolling through my photos or reviewing my idea list for inspiration.  It continues to amaze me that the inspiration arrived.  I’ve been grateful too that I tend to write quickly, usually with little revision, so I always got the post into the queue at a reasonable time.

I’ve been reminded that it is often difficult to resume a habit after we take a break, so my plan is to continue, perhaps with less regularity.  I have many photos in my library, continue to take more, and I am certainly always learning about this mysterious process of being human.

Thank you to all who read AMB; I’m especially grateful to those who comment either by replying to the email, going to the website and posting a comment, or saying something to me in person.  Although I enjoy doing it for its own sake, it’s even better to know that others enjoy or benefit from my musings.

May you and all beings be happy!

    Congratulations! There is something so wonderful about the 100 mark. Such a full, round number. Though I rarely comment, I love all your posts and your photos. I look forward to more of both. Happy sweet 100.

  3. I always read your posts. I love that they are short and sweet and astute in observations of people and situations and the inner self around the world! Thank you Kathy for your remarkable consistency. Happy 100th blogaversary!

    • Thanks, MH, for your support and encouragement. You’re the one who got me started with the original set up. Took me awhile to get going, but was so happy to have the bones to build the site it’s become.

    Kathy, I have read all of your posts over the past 2 years and enjoyed every one of them. I’m so glad that your friend suggested you write weekly as I have looked forward to being inspired by you every Thursday. Even if you did moan and groan a wee bit at times we have benefited greatly from your insights and wisdom, and your lovely photographs. Thank you.

    Thank you Kathy! I love my Thursday morning briefing with your musings. Every time I open your AMB email I find myself taking a mindful breath and relaxing. Then I read your post and study the images and feel…joy, compassion, love, curiosity, amusement–and always a little more settled in the moment. Grateful for you!
