Thank You For Your Time


I'm a little surprised to find myself writing this post and in all honesty, I'm not a hundred percent sure what to say. You are probably aware that earlier this year I decided to take a break from blogging in order to focus on my studies until my a level exams were over. I followed that announcement by asking you to complete a survey on how I could improve my blog, earlier this month. However recently I read a book that I would highly recommend called "The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k" by Sarah Knight and the book has changed my perspective on so many things, I feel lighter and clearer minded. I feel happier and more comfortable in myself and above all, I feel ready to move forward with my life.

The next few months are very exciting and slightly frightening for me. I will be moving away with my girlfriend, Starting a whole new adventure at university and working towards my future, I have discovered minimalism and veganism and I feel like I'm starting to get a sense of understanding regarding my own values and passions. Initially I was really excited to share this journey of learning and creativity with you guys and I thought it would be a fresh chapter for my blog. But then I thought ... is this what I still want ? First it was just a thought at the back of my mind and slowly I felt a need to voice it and eventually I came to the conclusion that is time to say goodbye for good to Don'tBurstMyBubble. I have been blogging for the last three years of my life and I have loved every minute of it and I appreciate the support I have been given from readers old and new. When I started blogging, I was actually quite lonely. I didn't have many friends, I didn't have very much self awareness or any passions and blogging has really helped me learn so much about myself.

When I was starting to seriously consider stopping blogging , I discussed the matter with my mum ( where else do you go when you don't have a clue ? ) and she told me something that I think is very important, " Some things have a purpose when you start doing them, but it's ok to stop when they have served their purpose" . This rang true with me, blogging has helped my become so much happier and more confident in expressing myself  but now I really feel like I'm on the path into a good place and i feel ready to just enjoy my life. So maybe it's time to let go.

So. thank you for your time. I am so, incredibly grateful for every minute you have spent reading or commenting on this blog and I hope that I've made you smile once or twice.

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)

Lots of love, Marianne xxx

P.s. It's been a pleasure.
