A Letter To My Readers

A big Hello from me to you :) When I started My Dream Canvas it was simply my online diary. It did start out being personal and then slowly I was encouraged to include a lot more people into this space. I am so glad I did :) I am touched when you stop by to read what I write. We all have busy lives and even the few minutes/seconds you spare for My Dream Canvas means the world to me. I know I have said these things before but what can I say you guys are special :) While it sounds like a cliche, this journey has been a learning process and I have loved every minute of it.

 For those who are new to MDC, here is a little bit about me....I am a mom of two kids, I love to travel and I love photography. I like decorating my house and enjoy the world of interior design. In this crazy world, we all enjoy a few minutes of "down time" every now and then. I am a happy gal if you find that "down time" reading My Dream Canvas and the other wonderful blogs out there. Depending on your interest there are a variety of blogs out there for each and every one of us. 

Every once in a while I question the direction that I want for My Dream Canvas. While I have a lot of plans in the pipeline, for now I am happy to see the shape its taken. There are a lot of serious issues in our lives and in the world we live in. I would like MDC to be a happy place, a stress buster for me and my readers. For me its like an online scrapbook of pretty things. A place to share and discuss what inspires me. I would love to engage my reader in this conversation. So do join in whenever you can :)

I have made the most amazing connections through My Dream Canvas and have met some wonderful people. After a crazy day, its nice to connect with some kindred spirits and read a lovely comment or two :) I have also encountered some people who are not so nice!! There are people who are insecure and competitive and this reflects in their online interaction.  My advice to such people is that you are wasting your time. Be happy with who you are and don't try so hard. You are the only one competing because most of us are certainly not :) 

I have rambled on for quite a while now so I will end soon!! The endless sunshine in my home today and the bunch of flowers make me want to sing a happy tune :)

Thank you to all of you.............hugs Anu!!

Anu- What a wonderful post. I love the direction your blog has taken, too. You are so right-there are wonderful people out there-most of them. I, too, have found that I sometimes get a person here and there that leaves a snide comment. I let it stand because they are the ones that look foolish in the long run. God bless you and I hope you have a wonderful 4th with your family- xo Diana
