 Taken by my gorgeously talented friend Leigh

This is my 300th post.

300 posts have brought me far from where I started.

300 posts have seen tears, joy, immense sadness and overwhelming happiness.

300 posts have helped me to meet some of the most sensational people I've ever met.

300 posts have helped to bring me back to life, as silly as that may sound. Without an outlet for my thoughts, my fears, my hopes, my dreams, I'm not sure I'd be as happy as I am right now, right here in this moment.

Writing helps. It always has. I hope it always will.

As I reach the (slightly odd) milestone of 300 posts I feel that now is the time for this blog to go in a slightly different direction. So much of what I've written here has been about, or because of, him. Because of Chris, to give him his proper name. I'm done with that now. That particular chapter of my life is over. And it's time to finally say goodbye.

I thought I'd wait forever. It turns out that forever was nine months.

I guess everyone has their limits.

Congratulations on the big 300! I've spent this evening reading through all your old posts and they've really struck a chord with me (lots of things in common I think).

You should be very proud of what you've achieved along the way.
