I can’t even tell you how many times over the past 10 months I have sat down to write this very post. Well today the time has come that I must say goodbye to blogging.
It’s hard to explain why, but I know many of you will want to know so I’m going to try.First, I want to make it very clear that these are MY feelings. I don’t want it to come across that I feel like this is the answer for everyone. It’s not. It’s just what is best for ME and MY FAMILY, so I pray that this can come across how I intend.
Remember last August in THIS POST when I said I felt like a chicken running around with my head cut off?
Guess what? I still feel that way.
I absolutely LOVE being a mother! These 4 kids are my world and bring me so much joy.
But the fact of the matter is, they are also a lot of work.
My kids are 6, 5, 3, and 1. Still young and very impressionable. They need me, and I only have a limited time to teach and influence them. I won’t ever get these years back, and I’m realizing more and more just how quickly they grow up.
I CANNOT FAIL AS A MOM!!!!
As I have been feeling more and more overwhelmed with life and my mounting “to-do” list, I realized a few things.
1. I can’t do it all.
2. I’m unhappy when I try to do it all.
3. My husband and kids feel the side effects of a tired, unhappy mom.
All of this led me to the conclusion that I need to…
The more I thought and prayed about it, I felt very strongly that quitting blogging was part of the simplifying process.
You may have noticed the lack of project posts lately, and quite a few sponsored posts. I have to apologize for that. Once I knew that I was quitting, I had to “settle all of my commitments” if you will. I still have one more post later this week, and a quilt I’m in the middle of (not sure when that will be posted).
I know I’ll still keep making things for my family and home, so I may or may not share some of those things here. The good news is that my blog is still on Blogger so I won’t be deleting my site. It will still be here to access all of my past projects and tutorials. They are all listed on my Tutorials & Projects page, and you can also use the search box in the sidebar.
I have felt such peace about my decision so I hope you can all be happy for me. I know this is the right thing for me and my family. I love you all and want to thank you for being part of this journey with me!
