4 Years of Blogging…Time For Good-Bye?

by tinareale on January 17, 2014

I started blogging back in January of 2010. It seems so long ago. Has it really been four years already? I spent almost two years blogging at Faith, Fitness, Fun – a blog where I shared more day to day life and how I approached health and fitness. Eventually, it didn’t suit my style and goals anymore and I considered leaving the blog world. I had just gotten certified as a NASM personal trainer and wasn’t sure which route I wanted to take. During prayer, I found myself with the idea of switching sites and doing online training.

That has led to here. The past 2 years and 2 months I have enjoyed sharing workouts, discussions on living a healthy lifestyle, a bit of life, and other such insights and topics. I have had much pleasure working with individual clients for awhile and then helping to build an online fitness community and watch it grow, just as the women involved did in their strengths and fitness level. It has been incredibly rewarding.

Yet.

Yet, I sit here again at a crossroads of sorts. Maybe there is something about the two year mark? I don’t know. What I do know is that I have had many times where I feel a tugging at my heart to consider this path before me. What truly fulfills me? Where do I want to go moving forward? What are my hopes and dreams? Is it time for a change?

My heart desires more focus on family and increased attention to personal relationships. I find myself longing to simplify life in a meaningful way. I feel more drawn to incorporating my passions for fitness and wellness in a more personal capacity, such as in my goal to teach yoga someday. I want to make space to support my husband, as he has so fully supported me, in some possible future business ventures. Basically, I want to live life more purposefully and have had to determine what lines up with that intention and what does not at this time.

I have struggled lately with how to meld these visions for my life alongside what has been a strong passion of mine for the past four years. And while I do feel like I have made many positive changes to do so, I cannot deny the continued changes in life that have led to this point and the possibility of letting some things go. I must allow myself the consideration that I may have reached a point where what has been a big part of my life for four years no longer complements where I am feeling called to go…or let go, as the case may be. It’s hard. And it’s scary.

So, I  will come right on out and say it. I plan on moving on from blogging and online training. I don’t ever plan to move on from helping others to see the fun in fitness and to find the joy in appreciating their bodies for what they can do over what they look like. What does this mean?

I will not be blogging here for the time being…and quite possibly anymore at all. And as for BBB – the Winter 2014 round of Best Body Bootcamp begins Monday. What about it? It WILL still go on and I WILL still give it my 100% effort, just as I have always done. In fact, I feel as though this has been the best round I have put together yet. There will still be workouts with video, community support, and prizes. I will still be checking in, interacting, and ready to provide help any way needed. But I also accept that it likely will be the last round I do, too.

I will still be around on things like Instagram and of course involved with BBB and am always happy to connect via email…but I don’t know, or even really believe, I will be returning here. I will, of course, continue to pray for wisdom on where God is truly leading me. To know what is best for both my family and my personal fulfillment. Right now I feel it is time for a change, but I will continue to pray and seek God’s will and where my heart leads me.

This is, quite frankly, madly frightening to open my heart to such a big change and moving on from something I have so dearly loved for so many years. Yet I know when I get the heart to consider something new and different, I can’t ignore it. Although, believe me, I tried for a long time. Then I have to remember that the last time this happened, I ended up here. So I know only good can come of these reflections and the decisions that come from them. I may not know where it’s going to end up…but I do know I can trust, no matter how hard the decision may be for me or anyone else. Know that I love you and cannot thank you enough for the past four years.

Until next time…whenever that may, or may not, be.

Good luck with your decision! I have truly enjoyed your posts and being part of the BBB a few times, but you need to do what is best for your family and yourself. Sending positive thoughts that the way becomes crystal clear for you.

2 Sarah January 17, 2014 at 7:20 am

I don’t want to say beatiful post, but it is so well written and I can truly feel your heart in it…know that I (we) have loved every minute of you :) and whatever YOU may look like going forward I bet we love just as much even if we never hear from you again…you will make the world a better place in whatever you do

3 Laura @ Mommy Run Fast January 17, 2014 at 7:24 am

Wow, what a tough decision! This posts makes me simultaneously sad and happy for you- sad to miss your presence around her and your wonderful posts, but I’m really glad you’re listening to the tuggings and open to going a new, scary direction. Life can take us many different directions, for sure. Many blessings as you determine the next stage for you!

4 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 3:45 pm

I feel simultaneously sad and happy too. I trust it is the right thing but still hard to let go.

5 Dana @momrunshalf January 17, 2014 at 7:25 am

Good Luck with your next endeavors. I only blogged for less then a year and couldn’t keep up with it with busy family life so I understand. I will miss BBB but sounds like you have some great goals to achieve outside the online world!!

6 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat January 17, 2014 at 7:37 am

Oh my gosh Tina, thank you for your honesty!! I’ll be dead honest when I say that sometimes I seriously consider quitting because it really is so much work. Having said that, I totally understand the ‘scary’ part too, because blogging has become such a huge part of who I am. It’s opened up countless opportunities and I don’t want that to end. I’m so happy for you for listening to your heart on this one – you have a wonderful family, and I wish you nothing but the best for your new adventures!

7 Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie January 17, 2014 at 7:44 am

Sending good thoughts and a big hug your way!

8 Jana @ Happy Wife Healthy Life January 17, 2014 at 7:44 am

I am praying for your heart to be filled with peace Tina! I absolutely love that you are doing what is best for you and your family, because that is what really matters at the end of the day. I will miss your posts but I respect your decision so much! Best of luck to you!

9 Coco (@Got2Run4Me) January 17, 2014 at 7:45 am

I completely understand your decision and I am proud of you for doing what is right for YOU. I have really enjoyed getting to know you and will miss that connection, but I will try to keep up wherever you are. I was on the fence about doing BBB because of my work travel schedule, but maybe I should take advantage of this opportunity!

10 Caroline January 17, 2014 at 7:54 am

I’m definitely sad for me and happy for you as I read this! I’ll miss BBB- it made a huge different in my personal fitness as I trained for half marathons. I hope that this route takes you to something even better and more fulfilling for you!!

11 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 3:46 pm

Thanks, Caroline! And I think you have learned a lot in your BBB time. Trust yourself and you’ll continue to improve and reach those goals you have. I don’t doubt it at all. :)

12 Jamie @ Rise.Run.Mom.Repeat. January 17, 2014 at 7:56 am

Change is hard. You have to do what’s best for you and your family.
Good luck, Tina! :)

13 Linz @ Itz Linz January 17, 2014 at 8:00 am

best of luck, girly!! i do hope we are able to keep in touch as i think you are an absolutely amazing woman! i hope if you ever come through st louis you stop by! :) :) xoxo lots of love!

14 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 3:46 pm

I know I definitely hope to keep in touch as well!

15 Heather @fitncookies January 17, 2014 at 8:04 am

Aww we’ll miss you! I understand where you are coming from, and pray God leads you to his next deicision for you. Good luck with it!

16 Stephanie @ My Freckled Life January 17, 2014 at 8:08 am

What a beautiful and honest post. I truly believe that you have to do what you believe is best for you and your family, and what you are feeling called by God to do. And if that is not blogging anymore, then I fully support you in your decisions. I wont say that I’m not going to miss your insightful and helpful posts, but I completely understand and respect making the best decision for you. Best of luck in your future goals!

17 Danica @ It's Progression January 17, 2014 at 8:26 am

I’m confident the Lord will guide you to whatever is best for you and your family at this point in your life. If this is your “goodbye,” I just want to say THANK YOU for being an awesome example of a well-balanced, healthy woman – not only for sharing about your choices in food and fitness, but also and maybe primarily, your faith.

18 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 3:47 pm

Thanks, Danica. That means so much. I know I’m going to miss sharing my heart like that…but will trust I’ll have another way to share the things I love to share. :)

19 mindy @ just a one girl revolution. January 17, 2014 at 8:29 am

Big decisions! Your presence will be missed around the blogosphere, Tina, but I deeply respect that you’re making choices right for your life! Best of luck in everything!

20 Jenni @ Jenni's Ferris Wheel of Food January 17, 2014 at 8:35 am

I wish you only happiness in your life! Change is so hard, but so rewarding! Thank you for all you have done, we have all changed because of you. Know that you are loved.

21 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 3:48 pm

You’re making me get all teary! You are loved as well and I have changed immensely from this community and all the wonderful people, like yourself, that are part of it.

22 susan @ suddenlysusan.com January 17, 2014 at 8:37 am

I wish you lots of luck and happiness with whatever comes in the future for you! I am sad this will be it for BBB but grateful to have one more experience!

23 Victoria January 17, 2014 at 8:38 am

Best wishes, and I will miss reading what you’ve written, but respect and understand your decision.

24 Maureen January 17, 2014 at 8:43 am

I’m sure this was not an easy thing to write. I will miss reading your posts, and of course BBB, but I’m happy and excited that you are doing what is right for you and your family.

25 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 3:49 pm

Not easy at all. I think I read and reread and reread it thirty times because it wasn’t even sinking in for me.

26 lindsay January 17, 2014 at 8:46 am

i want you to go back and read all these comments tonight. You see that support? You gave it and it gives back to you. You are trusting GOD and we SUPPORT that. ALL the Way! praying praying. And will always be here. <3

27 Amanda @runtothefinish January 17, 2014 at 8:48 am

Sending you much love and knowing that sometimes a break is just a break and sometimes it’s so long, farewell :) I look forward to still seeing your great smiles and fun on Instagram.

28 Glenneth January 17, 2014 at 8:56 am

Good luck with whatever you ultimately decide. I know this can’t be an easy decision, but you have to do what is best for you and your family. I will miss your posts, but will see you on Instagram!

29 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More January 17, 2014 at 8:57 am

Good luck to you! You have this community’s support in whatever ultimately happens, whether you someday come back to this space or don’t. Just keep listening to your heart, following your dreams and doing what’s best for you and your family. :)

30 Jackie @ MomJovi January 17, 2014 at 9:10 am

I know this was a really hard post for you to write, but you have to follow your heart, no matter where it takes you. And the best part of life (and also the scariest at times!) is that we have no idea where life will take us. So this may be good-bye for now but it may not be farewell forever. Trust your gut and instincts, and the rest will work itself out.

Thank you for all you’ve done to make things like strength-training so accessible and understandable to the rest of us. Thanks to BBB, you totally demystified the gym for me and that’s a gift you’ve given me for life.

I’ll still be following along on your Instagram account and wishing you nothing but joy, peace and contentment.

Good luck!

31 Brittany @ Read, Run, Repeat January 17, 2014 at 9:17 am

I can imagine that this was an extremely difficult post and choice to make… I am happy for you as you move forward on this unknown path! But I would be lying if I said that I’m not so,SO sad about the end of BBB! It has been such an incredible experience for me and has changed the way I view strength training. I have loved every moment.

I am proud of you for following your heart and moving forward– know that you will be missed!!

32 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 3:51 pm

BBB is the hardest thing for me to move on from, too. It has been just as rewarding and fun for me as all of you. I will definitely miss it, too!

33 Pam January 17, 2014 at 9:19 am

Tina, thanks for supporting me in my beginner efforts at BBB. Your program was part of the healthy direction and weight loss I have achieved. My life over the years has been full of many changes- some purposeful and some surprise. There is no way I could have plotted the path I have taken. All the change made me a better person. You have helped so many and I know that in your next chapter you will continue to do so. Stay strong and follow your heart!

34 Rosie T January 17, 2014 at 9:22 am

Tina-
I want to THANK YOU for sharing your bright spirit! You have been an inspiration to so many! I pray for you to find peace and fulfillment for you and your family! We will miss you!

35 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 3:51 pm

Thanks so much, Rosie!

36 Sarah @ Blonde Bostonian January 17, 2014 at 9:22 am

I know this wasn’t an easy decision for you to make, Tina. But if that’s what you think is right for you and your family, you have every right and should do it! It’s your blog, you make the rules. It’s been awesome following you and your fitness and wellness journey. Best of luck and happy that I can still follow you and your cute little kiddos on Instagram! xoxo

37 Heather (Where's the Beach) January 17, 2014 at 9:23 am

I hate to see you say goodbye to blogging, but I don’t blame you one bit. I’m so glad to have “met” you through this crazy world of blogging though. Hugs to you and I wish you the very very best!

38 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 3:52 pm

Whoops…previous comment posted to the wrong Heather. Weird. But I am SO glad to have met you through blogging, too!

39 Lindsay @ Lindsay's List January 17, 2014 at 9:25 am

emailing you now! much love, dear friend!

40 Cori @ olivetorun January 17, 2014 at 9:27 am

The important thing is that you’re doing the best for you. Love your passion and drive… keep rocking :)

41 [email protected] January 17, 2014 at 9:31 am

What a big decision, but it sounds like it’s the right one for you. You have given so much to so many people and you will always have that. Good luck with everything you do.

42 Heather || Heather's Dish January 17, 2014 at 9:32 am

I love this post Tina. You always seem to have the words for the things that I feel at times. I go through the same things at times, and at this point feel called to continue down this path, but I so admire your honesty and humbleness in spirit to listen to what God is telling you to do. Love you!!!

43 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 3:55 pm

I’ve been in that same spot for awhile and it never felt the right time to move on. More recently a lot of things have added up to bring me to say “okay, I’m ready for this change” and to be at peace about letting go. You’ll know when (if) the time becomes right for you, too, Heather.

44 Tara | Treble in the Kitchen January 17, 2014 at 9:41 am

Tina! Of course I will be sad to see your blog go, but I am so happy for YOU. I am happy that you are listening to yourself, your heart, and truly living the life you want and need. I wish you the best of luck!!!

45 Tori L January 17, 2014 at 9:47 am

We miss greatly miss you Tina! I’ve loved being a part of a few of your boot camps; you’ve challenged me and helped me achieve great fitness goals! I’ve also loved the spiritual aspect you bring to your blog. I loved watching your baptism and hearing your words of encouragement. Trust what God is telling you, and keep on keepin’ on!

46 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 3:59 pm

Thanks so much, Tori. I know I will greatly miss blogging at times myself, but have to really remember what my focus is right now and where God calls me. Thanks for all your love!!!

47 Tina January 17, 2014 at 9:53 am

I bummed because I enjoy your blog so much but the funny thing is even this last post motivates me to change :) I’ve been wanting to spend less time on the Internet and be more present in life.. And it’s encouraging to read this post! Wishing you and your family the best!

48 Amanda Perry @ Sistas of Strength January 17, 2014 at 10:01 am

Great for you, friend! Don’t be nervous…you’re following your heart and good things are coming your way. I almost lost my mind because I was so anxious and scared when I left corporate America (even though I didn’t like it…and I know you do love part of this so it’s a bit different). However, you’ve got your entire life ahead of you and you’re following your dreams…even though those dreams may be different now than they were 2 years ago and they may be different still in 2 more years. Roll with it, trust your heart and follow God. You got this…we’re all cheering you on!!!!

PS…2 years was always when I used to get antsy and start looking for a new job too!!!!

49 Alisha Moore January 17, 2014 at 10:52 am

Darn, you are my blogging hero! You always put a lot of reflection into your decisions so I have no doubt that you are headed for something that is right for your family. I hope to see you around town!

50 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 4:01 pm

Alisha! Hi!!! It’s going to be so weird not doing it anymore…but hey – should be around town more too. I would love to see you again!

51 Alyse January 17, 2014 at 11:23 am

Do what you gotta go, girl, but you’d better stay on twitter! ;-)

I was a Best Body Bootcamp-er the first three rounds and then life got in the way for others. No way I’m missing this (possibly) last one. I look forward to it!

52 Christine @ Love, Life, Surf January 17, 2014 at 12:32 pm

I’m selfishly sad because I will miss your presence here but I am really really happy for you that you are following your heart and lining up your priorities and intentions. Change IS hard but, as I’m sure that you’re starting to see through YTT, letting go of past stories that no longer serve us is a huge part of coming back to our center and to ourselves. Much love to you and your family Tina!

53 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 4:02 pm

What a beautiful way to put it, Christine. I’m glad I can keep in touch with my fellow yoga buddy on Facebook now too!

54 Bethany @ Accidental Intentions January 17, 2014 at 12:39 pm

While I absolutely understand where you’re coming from and am proud of you for recognizing what you need, I can’t pretend I’m not sad (from a totally selfish standpoint!) to read this post. FFF was one of the first blogs I ever read–one of the blogs that inspired me to live a healthy life, to explore running, to “drink the HLB Koolaid” (in a good way!). I’m so grateful that you dedicated as much time to this as you did. My experiences with Best Body Bootcamp were phenomenal. It improved my running and my strength, and gave me both an enormous appreciation for what my body can do and a better idea of how to structure a well-balanced workout regimen. I can’t thank you enough for the countless ways you’ve inspired me. Best of luck to whatever the future holds for you, Tina! I’ll certainly miss you!

55 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 4:03 pm

And thank YOU, Bethany!! Blog friends like you over the years have meant more than I can say. PS – I often think of you when I take my favorite instructor’s yoga class (her name is Bethany too). ;)

56 Marilyn January 17, 2014 at 1:02 pm

Best wishes to you! Hoping for such good things for you, as you have been such a blessing here.

57 Tamara January 17, 2014 at 1:29 pm

Tina, as a fellow fitness blogger, I totally understand where you’re coming from. Everybody needs a change every now and then to re-energize themselves and pursue new goals.
All the best to you and your family as you transition away from blogging. Hoping that we’ll still see you on Twitter and Instagram!

58 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table January 17, 2014 at 1:33 pm

I was so sad to read this in my inbox this morning!!! I completely understand though. Follow your hearts and stay in touch. I know you’ll be a great success, my yogi friend!

59 Parita @ myinnershakti January 17, 2014 at 2:33 pm

Not going to lie – the selfish side of me was upset when initially reading this post. Luckily, that side only takes up a small part of me. :) I am truly happy for you and inspired by your decision to follow your heart. As my mom likes to say, when you follow your heart and do things with pure intentions, you can’t go wrong!

P.S. Hopefully you’re still up for meet ups when I’m home. :)

60 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 4:04 pm

DEFINITELY still up to hang out when you’re in town. Would hate not to!

61 Maria January 17, 2014 at 2:46 pm

I believe you were one of the very first healthy living blogs I ever read and I’ve enjoyed getting to know you and following your posts ever since. You have a refreshing honesty, wisdom, and humbleness about you that I think is what made me gravitate to your blow and to you as a friend.

I know wherever life takes you next, you’ll be successful, as you always pour your heart and soul into anything you are doing. I’ve gone through a very long process of figuring out my career lately and I’m still not there yet. Regardless, I feel like I can resonate with you with knowing how hard it might be to step away from the known and go into something unknown. But we both know that it’ll be worth it, so congratulations to you!

62 tinareale January 17, 2014 at 4:05 pm

Definitely worth it and I wish you all the best as well, Maria. Change is scary but often leads to great things, right? :)

63 Shel@PeachyPalate January 17, 2014 at 3:06 pm

Power to you!!! Do what feels right for you and should you come back we’ll be here and waiting!!! A true inspiration!

64 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats January 17, 2014 at 4:26 pm

Awww I’m going to miss you – but thank goodness for instagram! Haha. I’ve been struggling with a similar decision but not ready to go one way or the other yet.

65 tinareale January 19, 2014 at 7:55 am

It took me a good six months of back and forth seriously thinking about it before finally settling here. I say give it time and when you know it’s the right time to move to something else then you will be unable to ignore it. At least, that’s kind of what happened with me.

66 Lauren @ Me and the Mountains January 17, 2014 at 4:37 pm

Love you lots, Tina! Best of luck in this next chapter of your life.
And I still hope to see you at Blend!! :)

67 Fiona @ Get Fit Fiona January 17, 2014 at 5:28 pm

I’ll miss your workouts and snippets of your life, though I understand when a change needs to happen.

All the best for whatever happens next!

68 Lauren (@PoweredbyPB) January 17, 2014 at 5:29 pm

Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

69 Jolene January 17, 2014 at 5:55 pm

I adore that you are doing this, and opening your heart to some big possibilities, huge change and shift from the past four years. You inspire me. XOXO

70 Lauren @ Sassy Molassy January 17, 2014 at 11:52 pm

Best of luck to you Tina in your journey! I do know I would love to hear about your yoga teacher training, even if that’s just via Instagram/twitter. :)

71 Brittany @ Delights and Delectables January 18, 2014 at 1:16 pm

Friend! I’m so proud of you for following God’s calling and being so brave to put this down. We will have to keep in touch. I’m going to email you…. xoxo!

72 tinareale January 19, 2014 at 7:50 am

Definitely want to keep in touch!

73 Anna@ActiveFingers January 18, 2014 at 1:59 pm

I will miss reading your posts but I know you will still be inspiring people with whatever you do! It is hard to take the step when you see God calling you away from something that has been a comfortable routine but I know you will continue to seek His wisdom and strength wherever He leads you and your family.

74 tinareale January 19, 2014 at 7:52 am

I sure hope so. I love sharing these passions of mine and do hope and plan to always have a way to do so…I just love interacting with others in this way! I think that’s one of the hardest things in this change. Not knowing how I will connect outside of this space I have grown so comfortable with and have loved for so long. But when God leads your heart elsewhere…gotta follow as scary as it may be. Thank you, Anna, for all the love!

75 Athena @ Fitness & Feta January 18, 2014 at 2:11 pm

Tina!! I’m not going to lie, my first thought was OH NO. You have been one of my top three favorite blogs to read since the beginning of my own blogging journey. I discovered your blog after winning a personalized plan through Whitney at Live, Run, Love, Yoga and I’ve been following your journey ever since. I’ve participated in multiple BBB rounds and bought your holiday workout plans. You were the person who inspired me to increase the frequency of my strength training workouts, and I owe a lot of where I am in fitness to you. Your posts always made me smile, nod, and want to share with the world.

That being said, after my moment of surprise, I realize that this decision must have been an extremely difficult one for you. I am happy you are able to put your family and relationships first and able to be so honest and true to yourself.

I know wherever the journey takes you next, you will continue to inspire everyone around you. Good luck with everything!!

76 tinareale January 19, 2014 at 7:48 am

It was VERY difficult – six months in the making, in fact. Where I fought, fought, fought it but then things over that time have just lined up to bring me peace (and even feeling excited!) about it all and leave me unable to ignore what my heart and gut have been telling me anymore. Thanks for all your support, Athena. I think you are AMAZING!

77 Tami Grandi January 18, 2014 at 7:35 pm

I’m sorry to read this- and yet so excited to see where the journey takes you. I have thoroughly enjoyed how you tied your faith in with the fitness since that’s what I long to do. (and, when you have time- I know you talked about the yoga in an earlier post but if you have time I would love to hear more in an email how you plan to marry your yoga with your faith. That is something I am struggling with- side note- I am not a yoga instructor nor have a desire to be one- just trying to understand it all)

78 tinareale January 19, 2014 at 7:43 am

Of course! Feel free to do so. The style I’m learning is Iyengar and in the very beginning of our book it states “Yoga is not a religion by itself. It is a study which will enable one to better appreciate his own faith.” And I can already see that taking place for myself. I personally know what a relationship with Christ has done for me and believe in His power and love for all, but also believe to apply that belief I’m (to simplify it to the core) called to live a life of love. Yoga helps me do that and I do that in my practice and how I relate to others, even those of different beliefs in the study. It all somehow ties together and melds so beautifully.

79 Emily (@FitandFreeEmily) January 18, 2014 at 8:07 pm

Oh Tina.
This makes my heart so full of joy for you and your family and, at the same time, I’m a little selfishly sad. ;) You were one of the first blogs that I really connected to, and we’ve chatted so much about our mutual experience/writing on Binge Eating. I’m so thankful for the time you’ve put into this space and BBB. GOOD LUCK with EVERYTHING!!! <3

80 tinareale January 19, 2014 at 7:31 am

And I’m so thankful to know you, too, Emily! Much love to you!

Thank you so much, Debbie. It’s a big change but I do feel very happy about it, too. I will definitely miss all of you so much too, though!

I can’t imagine what a hard decision this was for you to make – it can be scary to let go of something you love! But I really admire you for knowing what is right for you and your family, and it’s OK not to want to blog anymore! You’ve done amazing things in the time you were blogging, and you will continue to do amazing things!

That must have been a very hard decision to make! Especially after 4 years of blogging. I hope the best for you whatever comes your way! =)

Wait…but you provided such great content. Good luck on your venture and remember, the reason you found this venture was by looking around the corner. Look around the next corner….

Congratulations on making what was probably a huge, scary, immensely difficult decision. I’m sure it’s bittersweet. Know that you’ve had such a profound impact on so many lives through your online work–your legacy will live on here!! Thank you so much for all that you’ve given, and blessings on your next adventure(s)!

Sorry to see you go, but hey, that situation you’re in right now where you feel you’ve got to put a whole lot more purpose into your life, I think faces each one of us at some point in time. I wish you luck and lots of enjoyment on your next venture!
