I started this blog three years ago to express the publishing process of Organic Leaves, vent about men ;-), and share my life experiences with friends and family. When I started at 27, 30 seemed so far away, and I was so excited thinking and wondering what would become of me by the end of this blog's lifespan?
A lot has happened in three years: had a literary agent only to part ways, I opted to self-published my debut novel and am still proud of that decision, I've moved on/in and out of relationships mentioned in the blog (growth is a good thing), and life showed me pain like I've never experienced and happiness, love, and joy like I've never experienced.
I noticed also reading back on the first entries that I was very vocal and expressive. It seems that it is opposite in the most recent entries. I suppose the older and more mature I became, the less I wanted to divulge about my life. This is actually the me I've always wanted to be- just a little more private and quiet about personal things. However, I still see the value in opening up and helping people by sharing my life story...just not all the time. :-D
This blog has seen me through the writing, publishing, and promotion of my pride and joy Organic Leaves; it's been my venting board when I was sad, frustrated, and irritated; and it's been a praise station where I expressed gratitude for the wonderful people in my life and the awesome experiences I've had in the last three years.
It is now time to close this chapter (this blog) as my 30th birthday was this past Saturday! I'm grown now! :-) and there's no more "three years to 30." I'll start another blog again...one day. For now, I'll be concentrating on the other book, reading others' works, and enjoying this comfortable feeling that 30 is already giving me.
I want to thank you from the bottom to the top of my heart for reading and even commenting on Three Years to 30. I felt like you were on this three-year journey with me, and I couldn't have asked for better company.
