Inner Journey


So it looks like my break from blogging has turned into more than that, it has become a spiritual journey of sorts. I’ve done a lot of thinking and I’ve decided to focus on finishing my bachelor’s degree in English – Creative Writing. Woo hoo! I know my major must be a real shocker for you ;)
 
I realized that what I really want to do is become a teacher. The funny thing is that I’ve known this for a while now but told myself that I couldn’t, that it would take too much work, it was too competitive, etc.  But then I realised that there will always be a need for someone to help others with writing and literature, so I am following my heart. I was able to work past my fears and I’m going full speed ahead (ok, maybe 55 mph..but still it’s something). 

Because of school I don’t know when I will be back into the full swing of blogging again, I will make more posts but I don't know how often that will be. In the meantime please feel free to email me. I also wanted to thank all of the wonderful people I’ve met through this blogging experience; you have helped, encouraged, and inspired me so much. This is such an amazing community of writers. You guys are awesome.
 
Take care and happy writing!
