New Chapter

When I graduated from high school I went straight onto college. After 3 years of college I was feeling burned out and not really motivated. I decided to take a break and figure out exactly what I wanted to do. To this day I am thankful that I took that time off because it gave me a chance to get recharged and find my motivation. When I did go back to finish my degree I knew exactly what I wanted and it showed in my grades. I was on the deans list and getting straight A's. The funny thing is, I really don't remember working that hard. It seemed to come so natural to me and I knew this was what I was suppose to do.

When I first started this blog it was for ex-Jehovah's Witnesses. I talked mainly about being raised a Jehovah's Witness and how that affected my life. It was a huge turning point when I changed the name of the blog to where I was not looking at myself as a label. When I changed the name of the blog it became more personal. I was no longer looking at the past but was living in the moment.

When I changed the name to Mirror Images, I think it was a point in my life where I was looking outward to all those in my life. This has been an amazing experience for me because I realized I am surrounded by so much love. It's pretty amazing to look at all those in your life and to have so much love reflecting back to you.

This weekend I will be starting a new chapter in my life. Don't worry, I am not going to change the name of my blog or address. But I am going to take a small break.

Lately I feel like I am not being as honest on my blog as I had in the past. There is so much I want to share and most of it is very personal. I feel that taking a break to allow my mind to focus on the move will be best for right now. I need to focus on saying goodbye to all the good and bad memories that I have had in this house. There is a lot of letting go that needs to take place and I feel that I need to focus on that right now.

I hope everyone comes back this weekend for day one of the new and improved Caroline

Smooth sailing to you this weekend.

Yes you need a break and time to grieve and say good bye to your old house. Looking forward to the new and improved Caroline (although how you're going to improve on "perfection" is beyond me!)

P.S. Like the others I was pretty attached to the "old" Caroline myself!
