Hi friends! I am finishing up my second year at this blog and have been doing a lot of evaluating and thinking and introspecting and planning and all that good stuff. One thing I have realized is that I love blogging. I have always been a journaler and actually having people respond and interact is so fun! I have also realized that being able to connect with my far away family is priceless. I love the relationships with family that have grown through this place. I love it so much it makes me all teary eyed and sentimental just thinking about it. So how do I make the change I want to make without losing all of that?
I started this blog when I had a big question mark in my life. A lot was changing and I was seeking to do a lot of things that didn’t work out. Have you ever thought that people were drifting all around you and you thought you were doing the right thing to keep them close only to create the opposite situation? That’s pretty much what happened. The cost was high for a “free” blog, if you know what I mean. Consequently, though I love blogging, the very name of this site reminds me of lost friendships, sad times, and that huge question mark that hovered over me at the time I started writing here. I can’t carry that around with me anymore. I feel like I have addressed it in my own heart, have said what I need to say to those I needed to speak to, and now it’s time for me to let it go. I was reading this post by my friend Rachel and had a moment of such clarity. I need to find a way to say goodbye to that time and let it go. For this spot, it means stopping here and starting over somewhere else. Rachel has taught me a lot about that too. You should read her blog. It comes more from the heart than any other blog I read.
I feel nervous, as I do with any change, and I am excited. Mostly, I hope you guys will come with me. My new place is small with bare walls and not a lot of flair but that’s what I’m liking right now. It’s simple. The future is mine to mess with and who knows what will be there? I’ll still be wifing, mothering, dog training, knitting, nursing (as in the healthcare kind, not the breast kind), over sharing what’s on my mind, and appreciating all of you. Will you come with me?
I’ll leave this site active since WordPress holds your content hostage when you try to leave. I tried the converter but apparently, I have too much content.
So here goes…
my new place is www.sarahnadeblog.com
I hope you’ll come see me over there!
