Just wanted to let you all know that I’m going to be stepping away from blogging for a while. I’ve turned a major corner in my life and I have a lot of changes coming in the next few months. One of those changes, I think, for myself, is playing my cards a little closer to my chest. I have so much to be grateful for, things to look forward to, and I don’t want to jinx myself in the process. I just feel the need to retreat and spend some time on my own, keep my innermost thoughts a little more to myself.
This blog has been more than a soap box or a pulpit for me…it has been free therapy. I have worked through a lot of things, very publicly, and I thank all of you who have been along with me for the ride. I’ve received much encouragement, praise, and support over these last couple of years, and I am deeply appreciative. Many of you have been kind enough to tell me that my words and honesty have helped you through your own personal situations and ponderings. Indeed, there is nothing more precious to a writer than to hear that your ramblings were actually compelling to some other human being. So thank you, again, to all of you who have shared this space and these years with me.
After a couple days, I’m going to set my blog to “invited readers only,” so that it can no longer be accessed online. It’s just a way to keep my blog archive around, but for my own private use. No actual invitations are being extended to anyone, so please do not feel as though you have not been invited to the party, because there is only a party of one behind the screen: me.
