What Do I Wanna Be When I Grow Up?

OK, I’m 42 and I need to figure out what I want to be when I grow up =) so I’ve decided that I need to take a little break from writing and reading blogs.

Everything is totally fine. I’m feeling good, just plugging along nicely with the intuitive eating (everything in moderation) and my normal workouts. I just want to step away from my laptop, spend some more time with my kids and husband, and take a look at where I am heading in my life right now.

I’ll be back, so please bear with me. If you have any questions or want to contact me, please feel free! love2eatinpa@gmail.com

    I’m so sad! Your blog has helped me so much–don’t be gone for too long! Maybe you could write a book. 🙂 Best of luck.

    Best wishes on your search. I’m 41, but have only determined that it doesn’t matter what I want to be…only that I have fun trying to figure it out each day.

    I’m looking forward to what you find out.

    I so understand this… many of the bloggers are feeling this & me too, like you… I need to figure some things out PLUS I need to make some money or things may not be good. BUT I so love the readers & the blogs…. I am not leaving yet but I just don’t know in the future.

    I hope you do visit now & then to let us know how you are doing. This blog stuff is a huge investment in time & self!

    Thx for sharing!

    Yes, there are many feeling this. It happens. I started blogging back in 2003/2004. I got to this same point. I was starting my own online business, writing everyday and gave it up. Got a job and only wrote in my journals. It was last year when I was going through these exact same things. I was 48 trying to figure out what I wanted to do when I grew up. And here I am. Finding the balance is sometimes just doing that. Trying a few things differently. Hang in there, keep in touch and maybe just post once a week and comment once a week — not the black and white…just saying..If there is anything I can do to help email me…..Been there…..

    I hope your break from blogging leaves you refreshed and that you’ll be back soon for more! Selfishly we’ll all miss your posts, but I completely understand the need for a break. Does a body (and mind) good. 🙂

    Happy Mother’s Day to you, too! Hope you’re having a wonderful day.

    I feel the same way. The blog is a chore, I don’t feel like reading them either. It keeps it all too much part of my life, always keeping my nose deep in it even though I’m tired of the whole &^Y()_) conversation.

    Good luck.

    Sounds like a good idea to get away for a while and figure out what’s right for YOU. If you need anyone to talk to, shoot me an email or something- I’ve honestly gotten so much out of reading your blog that I would love to be able to do something to give back to you for everything that your writing has done for me.

    We’ll still be around when you return 🙂
