It’s probably no surprise to you that I’m writing this.
It IS a surprise to me.
I’ve been pondering about it for months now, trying to make time for everything, trying to hang on, trying not to say goodbye.
I’ve rationalized too long, finding comfort in my internet securities.
I’ve remembered that the hardest decisions are almost always the right ones.
I’ve realized that in order to keep growing, you must allow change.
And, wow, have I grown.
I’ve been in Germany for over a year now and I have moments where I don’t even recognize myself. And, that’s not a bad thing.
It’s just….time to keep growing and make more changes in the hopes of reaching even bigger goals.
So, it is with a heavy heart that I’m saying goodbye to this blog. I know people have found it helpful. I just received an email from someone the other day, thanking me, but I think this is the right decision for me.
To be honest, I’m not sure if I will delete it or leave it up, although I’m leaning towards deletion.
I can’t let go of this name though, or the cool idea that jolted me back into a lost dream. So, you’ll still be able to find From Casinos to Castles in social media.
As for me, I applied for almost 20 jobs today. The boy is in kindergarten now and I am hoping with all my heart that something works out. Anything.
I’m not giving up my dream of being a writer either, so, you can still find me over at Tipsy Lit. You may not know, but I’m Managing Editor over there now. I’m really excited about that opportunity and I think this year, I’m going to grow even more than the previous one. I have so many things in the works.
I’m working on a memoir as well as my first book of poetry.
I’m also working together with 7 other fabulous women on a new site we will be launching soon that is community oriented with a goal of helping and supporting women.
I’m working on finding myself again and figuring out who that is without all of the labels I had before.
I’m working on making one dream come true, while letting go of another.
I’ve loved getting to know all of you and I’ve appreciated you coming here and getting to know me. As I said, this is goodbye for the blog, but not for me. I wish you all the best and if you’d like to keep in touch you can find me at these places:
And the new site isn’t ready yet, but you can follow on twitter to stay up to date on the launch!
Thank you again and I hope to see you at one of my other online locations!
