Gratitude, Grateful, Thank You

I’m Grateful For All Your Support

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” G.K. Chesterton

I’m grateful for all the support, all the friendships and connections I get from this platform which makes the art of living more enjoyable and doable. Life is about finding and making meaningful connections with others.

New Beginnings

I am writing this post to thank you all for all your support and friendship. Starting from the first person that followed my blog to the last person and to my future followers. I do not take your support for granted even though I may not have expressed it enough. I am writing this post to inform you all that I will be changing the name of the blog from EatDelight3 to the “Art Of Living” (Through A Christian Perspective or Lens).

I will be posting food on my Instagram, you can follow me on Instagram for more posts about food.

You all make this journey worth traveling. Thank you truly from the bottom of my heart. I embarked on this journey one year ago, when my life needed a shift in perspective. So many things were happening at once – some within my control and others seemed to be out of my control. Life experience has taught me always to change my perspective by looking at things through another lens. Blogging gave me the chance to see gratitude in unpleasant circumstances. While I am still yet an amateur, I am grateful for the opportunity and the chance to explore and express my creativity. And it is all because of you guys

“In ordinary life, we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Change Is The Only Permanent Thing In Life

All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on. – Havelock Ellis. I named my blog EatDelight3 because I believe that people need to feed their bodies, spirits, and mind with delightful stuff. I am a big foodie and cooking is very therapeutic to me. But as time went on I began blogging about other topics, which prompted me to start rethinking what I truly want to blog about. Many of you, or at least some of you, notice that I do not focus on one niche. I am still figuring out life and I have a wide variety of interests, and that’s why it only makes sense that I change the name of my blog to match my passion while fulfilling my commitment to you guys.

You’re More Than Just Numbers

I do not see my followers as numbers when I look at my stats. I see my own community members, and each represents a beautiful soul already blooming or ready to bloom. My utmost desire is to be able to add value, sharing my life experience, wisdom, passions, joy, pain, happy moments, fun, etc. while exploring the “Art Of Living “

Welcome on board beloved people and let’s ride together. Although the road may be smooth or bumpy, we’ll reach our destination by God’s grace.

Thank you all and I wish you God’s richest blessings and protection through this season and throughout your life.
