MIA

Hello blog world! Sorry to be MIA lately. I've been thinking a lot about this blog. My hubby found out that I've been writing this blog and he was not happy. In his words, "I won't want all my business out there!" I totally agree and in hindsight probably should have told him about the blog. Another blogger/friend suggested that some of the things I write are pretty personal and I agree. This started out as a blog about my challenges in ministry but really turned in to me complaining about work which is not good. Then as I began to stare down the ugly barrel of infertility and started reading other IF blogs it became away for me to share my struggles and hear from others with the same challenges. I do need a place to vent about things but I also need to respect my husband's privacy. So, I've started writing (yes actually hand writing) in a journal about some of these personal things. I'm considering leaving this blog. I'm also considering purchasing my own domain and blogging more about fitness, nutrition, as well as a little faith thrown in there and of course fun! Stay tuned as I will post my NEW blog here. I will continue to read and comment on other people's infertility blogs but I realize now that some things just shouldn't be put out there for the world to see, especially when they involve your loved ones.

My only problem is, I like what I've written here and don't want to lose it. I think it's a good document of my feelings on lots of different topics. Any ideas on how I can save my entries?

See you soon with NEW and improved blog with more focus and intention!

To be honest, I don't think you've overshared at all. But you have to do what's comfortable for you and your loved ones. GL!

Ugly barrel of infertility? I was there too, once.

It's only ugly if you let it be. It was a gift to run out of energy for thinking infertility is awful.

Took me a long time to get here.

Childless, happy, fulfilled. God's choice/blessing, not mine.

The life I have is richer than the life I had planned.

I wish you joy in the path Providence provides.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

I was just clicking through on the "next blog" button and chanced upon yours. You may have already figured things out, but if you go to blurb.com you can upload your blog and then actually turn it into a book. My blog is basically my journal (though I do write more private things in a normal journal), but I love turning it into a book because then I have another "journal" with pics and everything included. It is well worth the money to do it! Also, a friend of mine has two blogs. One she writes stuff for all of us to share and read, then she has another that is totally private (which you can do in "settings"). When she loads them onto the blurb.com software, it pulls them both over chronologically so she can bind everything into one journal to keep. Good luck.

i also originally stopped bloggin as i began anoymasly and then i had some that knew far to much about me so they must have known who i was.....i left.....returned under a knew blog title and i have nothing on here that leads it back to me personnally....i like real n if real means remaining faceless then thats the way ill stay, everyone needs a venting place and sumtimes the odd opinion ect or outside views ect, never let anyone influence your freedom of expression. n infertility can suckkkkkkkkk big time! i stoped ivf cycles near 4years ago n began to chancge direction as infertility led me n my relATIONSHIP to places i never thought inmagina able! i had a whole heap of counselling ect n have changed dramatically for the better, but my whole wolrd hasnt followed me lol. infertility imo never goes away, theres always some sort of reminder ect i just try n make most out of the time i have through not haveing kids....its different for everyone, but to say it dont bother or upset to me aint real! you can accept something but like i say always little reminders!

My blog started off to keep the few friends and family i do have in the loop about my life. But, I stopped writing because I didn't have everyday cheerful stuff going on. I am battling depression, so I started to write the truth instead of continuing with a fascade. My blog has truly been my lifesaver. It allows me to take my pain and turn it into a creative journal. I don't tell anyone about my blog, and I don't think but a few friends actually read it. I try to remain as anonymous as possible, but I am sharing my authentic self and my journey, and who can dislike that?
