One more quote

Hello, dears!

I´m sure you´re expecting my usual daily quote but today is going to be a little bit different.

Have you ever heard the expression “stop and smell the roses”, right? Well, the original quote belongs to Mr. Walter Hagen (a major figure in golf in the first half of the 20th century), and his exact words were: “You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way”.

I started blogging in September 2015 and I have not taken a break since then. I´ve enjoyed every single day, I have met many wonderful people and made some good friends. I have learned a lot from you and I have grown more as a person than as a blogger. I feel nothing but gratitude: thanks for your support that you have shown all this time, but also thanks for all the inspiration, help, advice and pearls of wisdom you share from your blogs! Keep writing because I´m not going anywhere!!

It´s just that my daily (hopefully) motivational quote series ends today: 532 quotes. I had no specific number in mind when I started but lately, I´ve been feeling it´s time to make some changes. I have more quotes than exercises or post about fitness. When I think about it, a voice in my head tells me something is not right… and I agree 🙂

Back in September 2015, I knew nothing about blogging. In November 2017 I know that more than two thousand followers deserve better than a daily motivational quote, weekly recipes, and occasional fitness post.

After my come back, I plan to post just three times per week, things I think you´d like to see again: playlists, exercises, recipes, fitness tips… and some new stuff. My goal is to deliver twelve worth reading posts every month, starting in December.

This month, after two years, I´m going to press the Pause button instead of Publish. No hurries, no worries, I´ll be smelling the flowers 😉

Big hugs!

    1. Hello, Sunshine 😎

      1. Chape,
        This is wonderful to hear, I totally understand. As bloggers, we sometimes get used to this regular routine of post and then other ideas come to mind and we find that as our blog grows, we have to expand our interest to meet the needs of our followers.
        I hope my boss does as well, that would be awesome! but if not, I am just happy enough to have a job I enjoy 🙂

  20. I’ve been wondering where you were! I think it’s a great idea to change things up a bit; it’s important to be proud of what you’re writing! I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us once you return 🙂

    1. Hahaha! I was taking a little break 😉 I’ll be back in a few days 😆
      Big hugs, my friend!!

  21. The thing about your quotes David is that they’ve often come to me as a message that I needed to read just at the right time. Having said that, I fully agree that one has to stop and smell the flowers – no gripe with that. Good luck with the changes you want to make and happy holidays to you! 😀

    1. This is one of the most touching comments I´ve ever received. Thank you so much!!! I just hope that my future posts will also reach you at the right time 🙂
      I´ll be back next week with new stuff but, Happy Holidays in advance 😀
      And big hugs, of course!

      1. So happy to hear that David. I suppose it’s amazing when one kind word or act can make a difference without you even knowing it. Do enjoy the rest of your break and I look forward to what you have to offer. Best wishes to you too! Chevvy

      2. Chevvy, you tell me brother, because your comments along this journey really made me feel that my daily quotes meant something to someone 😊 To me? Yes, it’s an amazing feeling and I’m very grateful and pumped to continue doing my best!

      3. I enjoy quotes, used to post some myself when I had time but I’ve had to go slow on my blogging due to other priorities. Btw, I’m a girl😉

      4. Oops, sorry, I won’t forget it 😅

      5. No worries David!😀
