For those who've been watching How I Met Your Mother regularly know this season has been an example of a great show being thrown in to a trash pile and sent to the dump. The same show that inspired the name you see across the header (if you're actually on the site, that is).
Timing can be such a funny thing.
When I started this blog, there was a lot of "Instead" that I needed to Be Awesome of. A crappy economy landing me in an unfortunate job situation, a shattered heart, drama with friends. I needed this outlet. Now? I don't need to use humor to cover up the healing. I need humor because I'm funny and like funny people.
Don't get me wrong, my life is still far from perfect, but I'm content...happy...at peace. I actually grew up, gasp (let's not confuse growing up with maturity)! You all have helped immensely in getting me there. I've made what I know will be lifelong friendships with many of you. Blogging really is a cheaper option than therapy.
It's with my newly found serenity that I say farewell to Be Awesome Instead. I hate when relationships linger without closure, and I've been a bad better half for awhile now. No excuses, no guilt, I'm just done. It's time. Thanks for the support over the past two and a half years!
Don't worry, I'm not completely disappearing from the internets...I'll still be lurking and you can always find me on Twitter and most Monday's at From the Sidelines (launching a new weekly feature this Friday you should check it out).
