Dear Follower-Famalam and Friends:
hate dislike reading posts about a person explaining why they are not blogging anymore. I never want them to stop blogging. But here I am, thinking about the reasons why Globetracer, the personal blog, is coming to a close. Don’t hate me. Today is the first day of the year. Happy New Year! I hope you’re thoroughly enjoy a day of doing the least. I am typing this from the comforts of my bed. The holidays drain me socially, so this day is very necessary to regroup before heading back to work tomorrow.
Many of you who have been here from Day 1 know that it has been an amazing journey. This blog is a testament that you can go from not knowing what the hell you’re supposed to be doing in life, to stepping out on faith and reaping the benefits of hard work and sacrifice. I started blogging in 2011 when I was 26 years old and living in Costa Rica for a short stint. It’s been 6 great years of triumphs, setbacks and so so many blessings from God. IF you’re struggling with finding your passion and purpose, HOLD ON! All the steps you’re taking to actively find that place you’re supposed to be, make a difference. My biggest take-away from this blogging venture is that writing will always be a part of my life. That will never change. Globetracer, as it exists in this platform will no longer be updated but I will continue vlogging on my YouTube channel and posting the videos here for some time. Please subscribe! Also, follow me on Twitter if you don’t already (@TracitaLinda.)
It has been a joy to connect with so many of you, and I really do appreciate all the love and support throughout the years. If I had 2 gems that I want to remind you of, it’s to get back to happy no matter what you have to do to get there! and that happiness can be found right where you are. A lot of time we focus on being happy when we reach such and such milestone but there’s so much to revel in right where you are. I’m reminded daily to look for those moments:
- Finding a new show on Netflix or Hulu to Binge (I’m thinking to start Glow here in a few)
- Finish coloring the picture I started yesterday
- Spending time with Brandon, making future plans.
- Making trip plans for Spring Break!
- Trying to decide what I’m going to grub on today…
- The reality TV shows starting back up today and tomorrow (Married at First Sight anyone?)
- Preparing for family to come into town…
- Making my 2018 book list with SPECIFIC titles.
It’s a brand new year, time for new tings. I wish you all the best in 2018, beloved. See you around the internets. Kisses and hugs.
