When I started blogging several years ago I was excited and hopeful, I wanted to use my negative experiences to help guide others. I wanted to share all the good so that others could know that no matter how bad life can get there was always something better waiting for you right around the corner. And for the most part I accomplished what I set out to do, help others.
But, somewhere along the way I got pulled into to my writing and allowed my emotions to control me. Somehow blogging about my daughter and our journey with her diagnosis and new normal turned into more about me and my journey with my life. And that was never my intention.
We reach moments that are life changing in our lives or as I like to say awakening moments. Moments of emotional and mental clarity and I recently experienced mine, all of a sudden so much makes sense. There is this immense sense of direction and peace and you know where you want to go and where you need to be but you know there are changes you must make to set you on the path to all your goals.
I have been struggling with blogging for several months now. I have felt the need to disconnect and I finally understand why. Its time to move on, to say Goodbye to blogging and refocus. I will not stop writing because I love it so much but I feel that private journaling is the outlet I need for me.
I set out to share Sophie’s story, to share her journey with the world and I will do just that. While I am saying goodbye to this space I will be continuing to share her journey through a facebook page I have created for solely that purpose. To share Sophie; the difficult times and the magnificent ones. I will continue to celebrate her life and share the gift of her with those who want to be a part of it.
If you want to continue to follow Sophie’s journey be sure to stop by and like Sophie our gift at https://www.facebook.com/sophieourgift
To ALL of those who have supported me, stopped by to show your support and love. Thank you! Thank you for being a part of this journey, a part of my story. This will always be a special part of my life.
And don’t forget!
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; It’s about learning to Dance in the Rain.
I’ve learned My Dance in the Rain, now it’s your turn!
Blessings to all!!!
