The Time Has Come
Sometimes it feels right - that thing you do. It can make you happy, eager to do it every day or, as often as possible. For some it is exercise, creating art, volunteering in their community or...writing.
Sometimes is feels forced - that same thing, it isn't 'right'. But you preserver and you move forward and you keep doing it, that thing that makes you happy.
Until it doesn't. Until it is a burden, a joyless act. Merely going through the motions to get over the tough spots doesn't work anymore. The desire? The need to express? It's just sort of...gone.
I never thought I'd be here, but I can't make myself care about it anymore...the writing. It's time to move on and time to realize that 'this', as in This n That, isn't coming with me. I read a blog post once that questioned whether bloggers should say their farewells or if it was better to just disappear.
I think the majority of the comments supported some sort of closure, where the blogger bid adieu to their readers - leaving no doubt and closing doors.
It feels as if I've made a connection with my readers, we've shared bits of ourselves: me through my blog and you through your comments. So, leaving without saying that I'll miss your comments and that part of me will miss coming here to...expose bits and pieces of myself...just seems wrong. I'm going to make it quick, because I'm afraid I'll lose my nerve and not go through with it. But its time...moving on is necessary, it's important...I need to put the writer in me to rest - she's had her say, she's done her time and she's tired.
Be well my friends - I'll miss you.
Farewell posts are hard to write!
This made me a bit emotional.
Too bad I'm not really leaving.
I'm just April Foolin' y'all!
Sorry to get your hopes up.
