Screw that. I'm just going to make a new one.
I've finally decided the direction I want to go, and so I need to start fresh. I have decided to call my blog Rewriting Rachel. It is a personal progress blog, but not the "let me teach you how to live your life, lowly mortal" kind that abound on the internet. Instead, it will be much like my blog was while I lived in Germany. Though I have a lot of wisdom and insight for my age that I want to share, I am no where near perfect.
I haven't been writing much lately because I have been struggling with myself, so how could I possibly help other people?
I have come to the conclusion that I can't give advice; I don't feel qualified. However, I can work on myself and write about the steps I am taking to become who I want to be. I can do that--and I feel that I should.
I have heard people who read my blog say, "I wish I could be more _____ like you." I found that interesting because while I was writing about my own experiences with positivity and rejoicing in them, I was not giving other people a roadmap to get there. So I will try to break things down a bit more for readers and talk about the steps I took to get there.
So, with greatest humility I would like to invite you to join me. You are the die-hard readers, and I thank you for that. I would like to continue sharing with you (much more often and regularly).
While I have loved writing Experiencing Essen, I am moving on. I hope that you will make the change with me.

I love you all dearly,
