Here goes...

1 May 2015

Some weeks ago we were asked if anyone of us would like to write a Moodscope blog. 'Oh yes I thought, I'd love to have a go at that.'

Then my fears and doubts kick in and take over.

'You! You couldn't do that'

'What have you got to write about that would interest others?'

'You are rubbish at spelling and what if your grammar is wrong?'

'Everyone will laugh at how stupid you are.'

'The other writers are so much better than you.'

'What if you get negative comments?'

The above comments whirred around my mind for days on end and I was still no closer to writing my masterpiece.

I did however think how wonderful it is that all the moodscope writers, people who I do not know, pop into my inbox every day and show themselves to us in such a way that some of their words make me smile or lift my mood even if only for a little while. Some of them are written so beautifully that they actually move me very deeply. The writers themselves even do this whilst they are themselves in the grip depression.

I wanted to say a big heartfelt THANK YOU! To you all for doing such a wonderful job. I never have felt brave enough to leave comments but I read and value each and every one.

I wonder how many of you out there read the post requesting new bloggers and felt the same as me? Well maybe you are good enough and interesting enough to just help one person through one more day?

Take care
