For the past 16 months, I’ve been involved heavily in the creation and maintenance of the Trim Healthy Mama Facebook community. My work there as a volunteer was very fulfilling and fun, but as the community grew, and as I took on other projects, I found myself over extended and having to lay down things that I really enjoyed, like blogging, writing, eating, and washing my hair. I began neglecting my home and family.
I’ve carefully and prayerfully considered my options for over a month, but I came to the final realization this past Friday that I needed to seriously reprioritize my time and my life. Starting now.
In short: I’m laying down all of the duties that I held with Trim Healthy Mama, including the THM Facebook groups. I’m pruning back this area of my life.
I’m FOREVER grateful for the deep friendships that have developed with the authors of Trim Healthy Mama. Pearl and Serene are precious people. I’m so thankful for their understanding and continued friendship as this season of my life draws to a close.
And speaking of friendships…the community and the friends I’ve made in the Trim Healthy Mama Facebook community has been SUCH a huge part of my life this past year. I have shed many tears over the thought of leaving my friends and laying down my admin hat. I am going to have withdrawals.
I will miss you all dearly.
But I’ll be OK!
Because the grood news is this: I’m not *really* going anywhere.
After a sabbatical, in which I plan to lay around in my pajamas for a week and just soak in the time with my kids…I will be here. I’ll be doing the things that I love to do once again: writing, blogging, and even hanging out a bit on Facebook. I’ll probably come say “Hello!” in the Facebook groups after a while.
I still LOVE the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle…I’m a believer for LIFE in what I learned from the book. I am super grateful for all that the THM plan and community have taught me and meant to me. And I’ll definitely keep my THM recipes and posts up here…and will even add more.
I’ll find my way. I have some ideas.
In fact, I have to admit, I’m *better* than just “OK.” I feel like doing a cartwheel, or riding my bike REALLY fast, or diving into my much neglected book pile again. I’m ready…so very ready for this change.
So, HELLO again, my friends! I’m back. And I have a BIG list of upcoming posts that I have been neglecting.
Keep in Touch!
I’ll still be here, blogging…so you can always get in touch with me via comments or by contacting me.
I’ll also still be hanging out on Facebook, albeit a lot less. If you’d like to see new posts announced via Facebook, I will put them up here on my blog page…be sure to like it so you’ll see updates in your newsfeed:
And if you’re into the natural health and herb thing, you can find me here…along with lots of other smart ladies! This is a girls only group.:
I just want to thank all of you who have made this past year SO full and wonderful…it’s been a blast, and I’m so happy to be making this change back to my ‘roots’ of writing and blogging. It’s something I’ve missed.
