That’s right. I’m moving.

Let’s call Spring a fresh start for the life of Alyssa, and therefore, for Life of bLyss as well.

Here’s a sneaky sneak preview of my brand spankin’ new WordPress domain:

But that’s all you’re gettin’, because I want it to be a nice unveiling when the site is ready.

Blogger’s just leaving a lot to be desired, especially when it comes to bugs, layouts, comments, subscriptions, etc.

A fresh start.
It’s what I’m planning; it’s what I’m grabbing; it’s where I’ll succeed.

“I’ve found you find strength in your moments of weakness.”

Courage is about doing what you’re afraid to do.
There can be no courage unless you’re scared.

“One of the most courageous things you can do is identify yourself, know who you are, what you believe in, and where you want to go.”

Be who you are and say what you feel.
Because those who mind don’t matter,Β andΒ those who matter don’t mind.

“It takes chances to make changes.”

And a few of my all-time personal favorites…

this has been on my fridge for the past 5 years.

“no one can give you courage;
no one can thicken your skin”

“maybe some women aren’t meant to be tamed.
maybe they’re supposed to run wild until theyΒ find someone just as wild to run with.

And edited to add from Lisa‘s post today,

I’m totally a thief, Lisa. Forgive me.
But this is perfect.

‘Cause after all, this little girl (and her scrunchies) is counting on me to do her proud.

Dear God,

I don’t know what your plan is, but I’ve finally realized I need to put all my faith in you.
Bring it. I trust ya.

Love, Alyssa
