Not Goodbye… See You Later!

After a little over a year of sharing my life, deepest thoughts, and biggest insecurities, the time has come for me to say goodbye.  Blogging has done absolute wonders for my life and mental health.  It truly changed me in ways I could never imagine.  It allowed me to sit down and slowly process out my thoughts which in turn completely decreased racing thoughts and overwhelming anxiety I’d have throughout the day.  But as my life continues to grow, and my children continue to have more needs, I feel it’s time for me to move forward.

My life has been consumed with meeting my daughters’ needs and taking those little moments between to provide my own self care.  I’m expanding my own yoga practice and have taken the time to really dive into my daily practice.  Not to mention, I continue to exercise on a regular basis outside of yoga.  I’m becoming more involved in my community, making new friends, finding new hobbies, and life seems to be on fast forward at the moment.  Due to the limited hours in the day and my need to want so much more, it’s time to prioritize my life; and that in turn means putting my blog on the back burner.

While I am incredibly sad about this new change in life, and I am excited for the road ahead.  I want to take the time to thank each and every one of my readers and subscribers for the continued support you’ve provided me through this past year.  Your kind words and encouragement have pushed me through some of the most toughest and joyous times.  Your constant love and words of inspiration has boosted my confidence more than you could ever imagine.  I take each and every message, comment, or criticism seriously; and I utilized those words to make my blog the best it could possibly be.  You’ve each had the opportunity to get to know, not only me as a person and as a mother, but you’ve been given the opportunity to know my beautiful children.  I’ve shared some of my darkest hours and some of my brightest moments.  Each post has come with such uplifting words and for that I am so thankful.

As some of my close friends know, I have decided to take a break from social media.  I deactivated my Facebook account a little over a week ago, and though I thought it would be difficult, the feeling has been overwhelmingly freeing.  Sometimes I feel when you make your life so public, it comes with more criticism and drama than necessary.  Utilizing this space as a way to express my emotions has come with it’s fair share of drama; but overall, my blog has done more wonders than hurt.  My blog has reached so many individuals and helped me to realize I’m not alone.  The small amount of negativity that has stemmed from my blog is due to the insecurities of others far out of my control.  Though I feel incredibly sorry for those individuals, I am incredibly thankful for the readers that have been touched and helped by my words.

Thank you for allowing me to express my emotions.  Thank you for allowing me to be open, honest, and the best version of myself.  Thank you for the positivity and uplifting words.  Thank you for allowing me to challenge and be the best version of myself.  Thank you for boosting my confidence and reminding me that there will always be people trying to bring you down, but alongside of those individuals will always be people lending you a helping hand.  Thank you for reminding me that I’m so much more than just a mom.  That I’m a person capable of miraculous things.  That I’m deserving and worthy.  Thank you for being the most amazing readers anyone could ever have… I look forward to big roads ahead…… ❤
