Time to Take It Offline

Hi friends!

I write today with somewhat bittersweet news: this will be my last post.

I’ve loved blogging the last 2 1/2 years, but lately it’s lost its sparkle for me. I feel like I have so much less to say, so much less to share, and I think it’s due in large part to the fact that I’m in a place of acceptance, familiarity, and ease. When I started this blog, it was because I didn’t feel like I knew myself. I wasn’t sure of my likes, my passions, my interests. I was a truly unhappy person, and it makes me sad to think of how long I lived like that. Now, I’m comfortable with who I am. Even if other people don’t like that person, I’m ok with it because I do like her.

No, life isn’t perfect. I’m sure it never will be. And honestly, nothing really has changed. Regardless of where I live or how I earn my money or who happens to be in my life, I’m still the same me. The main difference is that I look for the good and the fun and the positives rather than being bogged down by negativity. I’m confident in my ability to handle whatever comes my way, and I know with absolute certainty that no matter what happens–how fast I run or how much I weigh or who I’m dating or who does or doesn’t want to be my friend–I’ll be ok. I know that I’ll never really finish working on myself and that I really don’t want to. There is always always room for improvement, and I’m sure I’ll never quit chasing ways to be better.

I’ve learned these things through running, writing, and the many online friendships I’ve made through my blog, and I couldn’t be more grateful. Now it’s time to take my life offline and just live.

I’ll still be around on Twitter and Instagram, so I hope to keep in touch in some capacity.

Thank you thank you thank you for being such wonderful friends! XO

  1. I have REALLY enjoyed reading your blog for most of the time you’ve been blogging, and I’ve often felt that we could be friends if we lived in the same place! I’m so glad you’ve found a place of contentment and peace in your life. I look forward to continuing to hear a bit about your racing and Roo on twitter:)

    Your blog has always been one of my favorites and I will miss your posts! All the best to you and Roo. 🙂

  3. This is the worst thing that happened to me today. Just kidding, my face being mulled by a curling iron is. I will miss your updates though! We need to plan a race. Or a wine weekend. I am down for both or either. Miss you already!

  4. Booooo…. but I understand. I’ll miss your posts (you will have to start emailing me your workouts) and your thoughts on running. As long as we can still be instagram, twitter, facebook, and real life friends I will forgive you!!

  5. Aww! But it seems as if you are making the best decision for yourself. As I was reading your post, I was thinking damn, not fair…I wish I was in a similar place of confidence! But seriously, blogging has helped me figure out who I am, and what I am most passionate about, so I can relate. Good luck with everything and you know how to find me if you ever come to Richmond!

  6. This is what I get for being busy at work and not keeping up with my blog reading. I’m the last to know. But enough about ME! I’m glad you’re in a place of comfort and acceptance and of doing your thang. I will see you ’round the twitterverse! May have to stalk you more there now. Love you, girl!
