Change

 The last few months, hell the last six months even, have been so hard to classify for me. I don't even know where to start with trying to describe all of what has gone on. I've moved back across the country, I've lived with some amazing friends of mine. People who I can never thank enough for taking me into their lives. People who gave me more love than they ever had to while wanting nothing in return. I've grown my extended family to include people who may have never been part of my circle before.I've worked what I call 'normal' jobs in order to pay off what I have left of my personal consumer debt to work my way towards being debt free. I've allowed this blog, the podcast that goes with it, and basically everything related to this page to fall by the wayside. I have spent the last month or more trying to figure out if this is something I still want. Do I still want to make this community my world? Do I want to keep building this thing, this life that not only helps me but is set out to help others?

 The answer was always YES!

Yes, I love this community we are building.

Yes, I want this to be my life

Yes, I need to get back on track and keep doing this, keep living this life and helping others to do the same.

I just didn't know how to come back to it. I had walked away to focus on what was going on in my own personal life and I felt bad for not coming back to it. I felt like I had turned my back on something that I loved to focus on my health, my fertility, and my own chaotic life. I had no idea how to get back on track. Then I started to reach out to people in my life. People who care about me and my happiness. The people who above all else want nothing but the best for the people they care about and someone said to me "What do you want to be doing five years from now?" I knew exactly what I wanted to be doing, I had been doing it over the last few years. I wanted to be traveling, I wanted to be teaching people that no matter where in life they find themselves, they still deserve to be happy. That everyone can find happiness in life no matter their situation. I wanted to be helping people follow their dreams and find happiness themselves.

I've spent the last few years finding my own happiness and writing about what that journey has been like. I will keep doing this but going forward Chasing Happiness is going to start to focus more on YOUR STORIES. On ways, we can help you and inspire you to do the same. On the parts of our journeys that are messy and complicated (because let's face it, this is where growth comes from). Chasing Happiness is going to get even more REAL. Going forward I will be sharing stories from people just like you. People who followed their dreams, who took chances, who found ways to make the life they have one that makes them want to get out of bed in the morning. Let's face it, we all want to be excited to get out of bed in the morning but most of us aren't. 

 I know this hasn't been much more than a blog over the last few years and I appreciate each and everyone of you who reads it and follows me on my own journey of happiness but going forward I want us all to feel like this is our community, our place to come to be honest about finding happiness, to be inspired to work towards finding it together and most of all to feel supported by each other to help us all find that part of ourselves we are missing.

I'm not the best writer, I understand that. I may not be the best friend or daughter I could be. I am not the best business women or blogger but I want to try to be. I want to try to be better. I want us to help each other to be better people. To be happier, more satisfied people in the lives we live.

Over the next few weeks, you will see some small changes start to roll out over the website. Over the next few months, you will see bigger things become a part of this magical world of ours. We are going to be starting a book club later this year, I hope you are all as excited about it as I am. I am working on a few other things that I think you will also be excited to see so stay tuned to find out more. 

If you read all this, THANK YOU!

Thank you for still being here!

Thank you for all the support you have all given me over the last few years.

Most of all, thank you for coming back, even when I didn't for a while.

Love & Light 

Crystal

You can be happy and have the life you want
Me Too
