Goodbye for Now

Dear friends, I have decided to stop blogging at Soulvoyager for a while to focus fully on recovery. I shall still be blogging, just at another address, and I really hope to return to Soulvoyager when the time is right.

Several months ago, I had been toying with the idea of doing this. But I didn’t have peace in my heart because I was worried that if I stopped expressing myself in this way, I would not have any outlet for my feelings, and that always means bad news when it comes to recovery. I was also concerned that resting from this blog would cause me to be more isolated. But after much contemplation and seeking the Lord in this matter, I finally found a solution that I am truly happy with. I am confident that this will help me focus on my recovery and still allow me to continue writing and being open to my support team. It was certainly not an easy decision, especially after sailing with Soulvoyager for the past one or so years and all the blessed human connections that it has brought me. But at the same time as I am grieving this loss, I have the full assurance in my heart that this is the direction I should take for now.

Thank  you for being with me on this journey thus far. I am disembarking and setting foot on another adventure which I know will certainly be no less exciting. I thank God for the immense privilege of having all of you as my wonderful travel companions. I hope our paths cross again. I will be back one day if the Lord so wills, as a healthier, happier, and a much more rejuvenated Soulvoyager. In the meantime, take good care of yourselves and may the Force be with all of you!

  1. Dear Valerie- I hope that you can find that inner peace you so desire. Please do keep in touch–I hope my email address comes through with this comment.

    Sending you peace and trust in yourself.

  2. Aw, I’m sad that you’re “leaving”…but I understand that you need your space and focus on recovery. Oh Valerie, I really hope you can come back soon, totally healed and sanctified by the Lord.

    And as always, please, please keep in touch. Email me, leave me random comments, whatever. I just need to know that you’re still alive and well, and I need you to remind me that you’re in my prayer list.

  3. I just came back to blogging and was so sad to see you have “left.” I hope you’re doing well and wish you the best in your recovery.. You’re a wonderful person and inspiration to many people!
