You are always a student, never a master. You have to keep moving forward. ~Conrad Hall
This might be one of the harder blogs I’ve ever written. In one way, I am excited and in another way, I am quite sad. But I must take a break, after 11 years of never missing a weekly blog. But it’s not all bad. I have a reason why I am taking this break. Slowly but surely over 11 years, I have been progressing my work in bullying recovery.
For those that have stuck with me, you have seen this site go from telling bullying stories, to recovery tips, to understanding the complex issues with recovery and abuse survivors, to my writing books about the issue, to wanting to help as a Certified Coach, to now going back to school for more.
I enrolled in a masters program to work to become a Licensed Professional Counselor, with the hopes of helping more young people on a daily basis in my job. I am 50 years old and I am really doing this. It’s pretty hard for me to believe I’m here and doing this. 5 years ago, I couldn’t even imagine it. But here it is in front of me.
Unfortunately there just isn’t more than 24 hours in a day. So I must take a break from blogging. I welcome anyone to send me blogs to guest post here. This is not over by a longshot. Remember there are 11 years of weekly blogs here. Truly, I welcome any help from others who want to blog. My twitter will keep going and the other social media outlets. Please add your voice here. I am still here, just working to continue to do more. Wish me luck. If all goes well, I hope to do more good in a few years.
