I love you but this is goodbye
It started as a feeling.
Something nagging at the edges I just couldn’t put my finger on.
It’s not you, it’s me.
This blog has always been there for me, from my very first stumbling posts, through our infertility journey, my post natal depression and beyond to my Journey to Joy and Share the Joy linky for bloggers with posts that make then smile.
But for some time I’ve been feeling that after five and a half years Bod for tea, while very successful, doesn’t represent me anymore. The me that I want to be. The me that I’m working towards on my journey to finding joy in the everyday. The me that wants to share that journey more and more.
While I still love blogging and making my living online, Bod for tea doesn’t make my heart sing, make me jump out of bed in the morning or consume my every extra moment.
I’m the kind of person that does things 100%. If something’s not exciting me, I change it until it does.
It’s time for a change.
So I’ve hit a fork in the road and decided not to take the easy route – the path that meanders along, steady and sure.
No I’m taking the hill climb, the steep, slippery slope with boulders and ruts.
Because there’s the chance that at the top there is the most amazing view.
And THAT’S a view that I want to see.
So, in a way, this is goodbye.
This is my last post as Bod for tea. I’m taking a break for the Summer to refocus and breathe life into my new guise.
Bod for tea will return Autumn 2015 as TheJoyChaser.com
I hope you’ll join me there as I continue searching for joy in the everyday and sharing my journey. (And yes the Share The Joy linky will be coming with me!)
In the meantime please come and say hi at my new homes and interiors blog The Essex Barn when it launches later this month.
