If I were to sum up the lessons I have tried to convey in the four years of writing this blog, they are to listen to your gut, learn from your past and then move on, and laugh daily. There you have it--four years summed up in one sentence. And now it is time for me to take that advice. This is my last blog entry. I have loved every blog I have posted, and there have been many. I even have drafts of blogs waiting in the wings that will never see the light of day. My gut tells me it is time to move on from this medium to expressing myself in other ways. I will always need a creative writing outlet, and Insights and Outcomes has run its course for me.
I am most grateful to you, my faithful readers. I have relished every comment and email you wrote to me. That you took the time to read my words, and then comment publicly or privately, is one of the best gifts possible. I hope you reread some of the postings because the messages and lessons are timeless.
"Shalom," the Hebrew word for hello, good bye, and peace, is most fitting here. I hope you will periodically say hello to me and update me on your life. I am saying good bye to this blog. Most importantly, however, I wish for peace in your own lives and throughout this tiny planet we share.
