Hi everyone! I hope everyone is doing well and having a happy day so far. I have an announcement. A sad announcement but one nonetheless. I have decided to end my blog. I feel guilty, almost like I am quitting, and I am NOT a quitter. Dealing with this LONG hand healing process has taught me some things. I haven’t been able to blog because one-handed typing takes a long time and I was forced (kicking and screaming) to take some time away. I have come away with some perspective.
I have my struggles, like everyone, and I have a really hard time with the concept of balance. I tend to go from A to Z and I either do things really well or really badly. There isn’t a whole lot of in-between with me. I give 100% of my effort to everything I do and I take everything very personally. I know it may seem like not such a big thing, but it is. I become all consumed and I let things, important things, go to the wayside. Once I set my mind to something it is as if nothing else matters. Unfortunately, blogging started to fit into that category. I was becoming completely engrossed in this world sometimes to the detriment of my real world. I spent every free minute commenting on other blogs, posting on mine, and furiously not letting my google reader get on top of me. It was almost exhausting. Why I do this? I have no idea? This balls to the wall, all or nothing attitude is just me…a personalitily flaw perhaps.
But these last few weeks have opened my eyes again to a blog free world and what I was missing. Mainly, my husband. I know I gush over and over about what an amazing man I married, but it is true. Keith really is like no one else and he has more than proved those “in sickness or in health” wedding vows during this slow and long recovery process. But what I realized is that I stopped hearing him. I would always have one ear and one eye on my blog and my mind was never 100% with him as he told me stories about his day or a funny thing he heard on the radio that he knew would make me smile. But he never said a word. Not once, because he knew how important my blog was to me. But when I told him I was thinking of giving it up the sheer joy was written all over his face. I could read it plain as day. Yet, all he said was that he would support any decision I made. So, I have made it. I am saying goodbye.
I have a lot of business ideas and Keith and I have some real goals we want to accomplish and I want to put my focus on that. I want to be my husband’s partner as we develop and expand our business. I want to work on that with him by my side in a real and hands on way. I know you all will understand and I want to thank all of you for the love and support you have poured out to me over the last year. I have learned so much and made some true lifelong friends. I wish each and every one of you the best of luck! I will still keep reading some of my favorite blogs and check in from time to time. I know I will miss it and I am already feeling like maybe I don’t want to give this up. But I know I need to and I know I need to focus my energies and efforts on real money making opportunities.
Please feel free to email me, Kelly0412@hotmail.com, as I would love to hear from you. Or find me on Twitter (runnerkelly) or leave me the link to your Facebook page and I will send you a friend request. Please take care and know that I valued this time I had and wouldn’t have traded it for anything.
