Well, this is it. The final post for a while. I want to take this time to thank all of you for such an amazing journey.
I started this blog on July 23 of last year. It started as an idea. I just wanted something fun to do in my free time. My job was/is very intense at times and I needed something to get my mind off from it. Instead of just making a blog about me (which I couldn’t do) I decided to try something new. An interactive blog where all the content is supplied by the people who follow it. All I would do is supply a safe place for anyone to express themselves. I honestly only expected to get maybe 500 or so followers. I never expected I’d have over 6,300 in less than a year!
The outpouring of support I’ve gotten from all of you has really changed my life. You all keep telling me how much this blog has helped you with your body image and self esteem issues, or helped you meet new great people. But, I haven’t had the chance to tell you how much you have all helped me! I too have suffered from image/esteem issues for quite some time. But seeing the confidence you all have shown has helped me as well!
So, thank you! Thank you to each and every one of you who have turned this little idea of mine just to pass the time, into an amazing journey of self acceptance and discovery. You are all wonderful and amazing people and I will miss all of you dearly!
Remember… This blog would have been nothing if not for all of you! Give yourself a hand for helping create this space!
Also, keep in mind, I will be coming back from time to time in the future so keep your eyes open for updates that come out of the blue. I’ll try to give you at least a week’s notice when I’ll be back for an extended period of time so you can get the word out to everyone. And, you can always email me any time and i will respond as soon as I am able. You can send a quick hello, ask a question, or even send me a pic showing how your doing. I’d love to hear from you or see you while I’m gone since I won’t be able to log in. Anything you send while I’m gone will be kept private, so feel free to say/send whatever you want!
And with that, I wish you all adieu. Thank you again for this incredible gift you have all given me.
Until we meet again…
