Poof…..It’s Gone

Nine years, 1,728 posts, and 863,055 words later and it’s gone…just like that, well not quite. I did copy and paste every dream into a file and that took quite a bit of time. Deleting the posts 20 at a time is also very time consuming. I knew this was going to take some time but geez, I just passed the four hour mark! **At the 6th hour, I decided to leave the very first post***

I would like to give a shout out to those who continuously showed up to read my words, thank you. It takes a special person to keep showing up while I repeat myself…over and over again. How many times did I refer to my dreams as “wild” or “off the charts”? Too many times to count. It’s embarrassing, appalling even…

It was a tough decision to delete all of my posts. I guess it isn’t too different from burning my old journals, but I felt this one more. This blog has become a huge part of me and it hurts my heart to not sit down and write like I used to do. I am not saying goodbye but I will be holding back some. It’s not a secret that I tend to overshare….a lot. 2020/2021 has taught me so much and has opened my eyes to more than I ever wanted to know. How did we ever miss so much?

I’m not sure what this blog will look like going forward, just like I didn’t know back in July 2012. Only time will tell….Zia

I am just a woman finally accepting that I was never meant to be in the box. I don't fit into any stereotypes, please don't try and label me, that doesn't work either. I am embracing my uniqueness in ways that are new and challenging to me, so that I may continue to grow and never stop learning.

      This is not the end, it’s a new beginning… a reset of sorts. I had to let go of all of that “ stuff” that no longer served/defined me.
      I want to take this opportunity to tell you how proud I am of you! You have your own station now…this is huge!! Who knew all of those years that this is where you would be? Few people truly follow their dreams and you are one of the few!
      Ps: my vote for the Halloween show is on Halloween 🎃 My favorite episode of the year!

      • Hope you were able to listen and if so enjoyed the show. I Tried to pick some different stories this year.

          Of course I listened… it’s my favorite show of the year!! You had some great stories but I don’t know if anything will beat that story from last year? I can’t remember what it was about only that it was excellent! I said to myself last night “ how does he find all of these great Halloween songs?” I don’t know how you do it but you always outdo yourself 🎃. I am missing too many of your new shows, like Monday morning blues… I think I need to follow you on my regular Instagram so I don’t miss anything!

  4. Another option would have been to make those posts private (only you can see them) or make your whole blog private and start a different one. Either way, all the best for your future endeavors!!
