I sat down LONG overdue to start typing out Lola's 8 month post. I finally had a minute after the very hectic last two weeks we have had, but I sat here and thought and thought. I don't know my mind just started wandering down memory lane not about Lola's last few months, but about this journal in itself. All the posts from my past, all the beginnings and endings this journal has endured. I started this journal off when I was like 16 years old, I was a baby and now I have a baby. So many transformations and this journal has been by my side through it all.
This post has been something I've dreaded and looked forward to for a long time now. It's a love hate thing.
I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to say goodbye to my livejournal. It's time to close the book to this old chapter of my life. I never really thought this day would come. But it's been a long time coming.
Since November I launched a blog and was going to see how I felt about it because of my recent failures with blogs. This one has changed my whole perspective of them and although it's not "big" yet, I absolutely love it. And I never find myself on here anymore except for Lola's monthly updates which I have to force myself on here for. My blog has become my place of zen and peace. A place that I can unleash all my thoughts AND also document my life as I feel. Documenting has always been very important to me, I want my story to always be by my side until I'm old and grey. And that's why I cherished livejournal so very much because it was that place for me for so long, but it's time to say goodbye. My time here has come to and end and a new door has opened.
So all I can really say is thank you livejournal for being my pillow to cry on and my ear to listen to after all these years.
Thank you old friend.
