“There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story.” – Frank Herbert
Today marks two years since I started daily blogging. Although I just started with the 30 day challenge it has now far exceeded it. A lot has happened in the past two years. I’ve lived in three different states and five different houses. I’ve had three different jobs and watched my parents divorce get finalized. I have made new friends, traveled the country, and made a lot of good memories.
Although it may sound like everything was good, there was also a lot of healing, crying, and growing that happened. As well as some much needed medication and therapy. Life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows and you often have to fight for what you want.
I’ve continued this streak for two years now and although I’ve loved it I haven’t gotten to explore the other projects that have been needing my attention. The two ebooks that I’ve publish so far are just the beginning of what I want to accomplish so it’s time that I step away from this project and start something new.
Although I said I would continue to do this streak as long as I could and I technically still can I think it’s time to retire it. It’s better to not burn out doing something you love, and I love writing. I never want it to feel like a chore or something that has to be done.
In the past two years, I’ve changed so much and I’ve seen people around me change as well. I’ve seen relationships be built and fall, therapy be started and ended, and much more. Your projects, passions, and habits often cannot be completed in one day. They certainly cannot be perfected in one day. So if you want to start don’t wait until you feel like you’re ready. When I started this I certainly didn’t feel like I was ready yet here I am. You’ll never feel like you’re fully ready so if there’s something you want to do just do it.

Yes, this is the end of a chapter but it doesn’t have to be a sad ending and it isn’t a sad ending. It’s exciting to see all that I’ve accomplished and I’m excited to see all that I will accomplish. This chapter is closing but at the turn of a page another one is starting. One that I know will consist of just as much growth, change, and memories, if not more. If you have a chapter that’s ending don’t fear the unknown but embrace it.
