Today, the search for meaning begins again. Today, the search for something more begins again. Today, the search for a new home begins again. Today marks the end of my two-year journey with Thought Catalog. It’s been a life-changing journey for me and they’ve helped me become the writer I am today. I’ll always be grateful for the chance they took on me and will never forget that they believed in my voice when no one else did, but writing every day for two years and forcing myself to reopen old wounds, be vulnerable and expose myself day in and day out took a toll on me mentally and emotionally.
Granted, it was liberating to let it all out and it healed me in so many ways and helped me connect deeply with all of you but at times it was very difficult and it was hard to fully let go of the pain knowing I had to count on it for inspiration time and time again. I’m excited now to explore other opportunities and see where this journey takes me. I’m excited to find my new voice and I’m excited to share it all with you.
Change is not always easy but it’s necessary and it helps you grow and challenge your comfort zone but it also pushes you to dig out more gifts and treasures within you. I’ll always be thankful for each and everyone one of you and your undeniable support and love that made those two years even more memorable. For the first time in a really long time, I don’t have a plan and I don’t want to have one. I just want to see where life takes me and the new doors God will open for me but one thing is for sure, I’ll always follow my heart!
Today, another wonderful chapter ends and a new one begins. Let’s see what’s written in this one!
