It’s Been A Beautiful Journey

Change is hard.

When I started this blog, I had hopes that it would be like a journal to track this amazing progression. From not knowing anything about life to making my life into something great. And it’s been a really wild thing. I went from abstract writing pieces to mental health advocacy to political work to coping mechanisms and then some. And that’s been really cool.

But I can’t justify keeping this blog open for the nostalgia of it. I start more blogs than I finish, I post once a month and I’ve lost my passion somewhere along the way. And that’s not what I wanted. Now I’m at a crossroads. I can try to “fake it til I make it” and put fluff pieces up until I feel real again, or I can say goodbye.

I started out with great intentions. I wanted to be edgy and hipster and fantastic-with pieces that changed people’s minds and opened their hearts. But somewhere along the way, I lost that. And I can’t wait for it to come back. I have to go out and find it.

So this isn’t goodbye forever. This is goodbye until.

Until writing makes me feel alive.
Until blogging is passionate.
Until I discover what it is that I’m searching for.

Change is hard. But I was never meant to live on the sidelines anyway.

I’ll check the comments for a while-because I’ve made such wonderful friends along the way and I don’t want to lose you. I just don’t want y’all to feel like I dropped off the face of the planet without notice.

Live well.

  1. We all need a break sometimes. I hope someday your urge to write will return, but until that “until”, if you don’t feel it, you just don’t. Best of luck with your other interests.

  2. I’ve just found your blog through my wife and your article “MAY 16, 2016
    10 Things People With Bipolar Disorder Don’t Want You to Know”. You write things that speak to me about what my wife’s going through day by day. You help me understand what her life is like. Please, I hope that you’re able to cope, and to continue sharing your journey. We all need to understand. Peace and love.

    1. Thank you for your kind words. I have no doubt that I will reopen this blog in the future-especially with so many wonderful people who have supported my journey thus far. Mental health is something I’m very passionate about and I’m happy to have helped in some small way:) Love and light upon you!
