I Did It My Way

When I started My Little Review Corner, I wanted to have fun with this and use it as a creative outlet but I also promised myself I wouldn’t let it take away from other aspects of my life. If you have been reading over the years, you know that I’ve always tried to figure out a balance of all aspects of my life.

A couple of months ago, I realized that I wasn’t having fun anymore. For example, for the first time EVER a winner didn’t get a prize because the sponsor was abrupt, dismissive and when I tried to get things sorted out, blocked my email address! The winner is a lovely woman and while she was sweet and very understanding of the situation, it really hit home that I didn’t want to do this anymore! There was too much to do in life, I was always feeling stressed and I let other things that I enjoyed go by the wayside. I also found that I wasn’t working as hard as I could to reach my healthy living goals.

Something had to give and now it has.

I’m not saying I’ll never post again – but I am saying that it is time for a change.

When I pulled back from here and started doing other things, I realized how much I had missed those things and how much happiness they gave me. And, sad as it is, I didn’t miss doing this at all.

So while it’s not goodbye, it is definitely “see you later” for now. I have to do things my way and in 2014 my goal is embrace the things and the people I love.

So see you later gang! (That being said, don’t worry. The giveaways that are still running will end and I will be in touch if you are the winner!)

Hitting the send button is going to be really hard…but here it goes…..

    I’m sad to hear this but completely understand. I’m sorry about the sponsor not coming through on a prize and making you feel bad. It’s not your fault and some people are just assholes. It’s hard not to feel bad when something like that happens. I would feel the same way. I love reading your blog and entering your contests! I hope that after a much needed break you decide to come back and do what you do so well! 🙂
