Letter Z

"Nothing builds self-esteem and self-confidence like accomplishment." ~Thomas Carlyle

Letter Z is the least used letter of the English alphabet, at 0.07%. That's not to say that Z is inferior to other letters. On the contrary, this little lightening bolt symbolizes accomplishment. It is the last letter of our alphabet and if you've made it to Z, you've made it all the way. 

I'd like to congratulate all those in the A to Z challenge who made it to Z. Bravo! 

This was my first year participating in the challenge and I've had a wonderful experience. I've met many kind, amazing, funny, brave and intelligent people along the way. I've learned things, smiled a lot and had fun. I've also grown as a blogger. In the past, I had difficulty figuring out what to blog about. On the rare occasions I blogged, I would spend a lot of time agonizing over my posts and wondering if they were worth anything. Not that anyone ever read them anyway. The whole affair seems easier now. Thank you to all my new followers and friends.

Blessings!

  3. The A-Z challenge has intimidated me with its demand for daily commitment but perhaps next year, I'll try to give it a go.

  5. This was also my first time. As a non-blogger, I learned more than I expected and found many people writing about subjects that interested me. I have a new appreciation for bloggers and a new network of information that will be helpful in the future. Yours is one of them. Thanks

  11. Heidi well done, what an effort. I think your's is the first post that mentions the lighting bolt. It symbolises how I feel, fried and highly charged.
