I Love You






















My heart is heavy today.

The time has come for me to shut down My Name is Jacy.

Unfortunately, unexpected personal circumstances have made it so.

No blog, no goal, and no mission is worth jeopardizing my family- even with something as seemingly minuscule as a blog- and so, it is with great sadness that I have decided to close it down completely.

But I do want to thank you all for your love and support these past 9 months (and even longer if you're from the old blog). You have changed my life in more ways than I could have ever comprehended. You have made me a better person. Thank you, thank you.

Because of this blog, I was not only able to grow in magnificent ways, but I also met some of the most incredible women... and I feel so fortunate to have been apart of something so authentic and real. I've said it a billion times.... but this is life... and sometimes the BEST choices are the hardest ones to make.

Hitting the publish button was hard today, but my Little Dude and my new-husband-to-be come first. And please know that this decision was not taken lightly or because of trivial reasons. I'm doing what I have to do.

With that, I am off to enjoy the new adventure ahead of me.

Happiness exists.

Love is real.

Circumstances may change really quickly, but there is always an opportunity to adapt, learn and grow.

This is where I find myself now.

I love you all.

May God bless you and watch over each and every one of you.

I can do hard things.

You can too.


All my love,

Jacy

  2. I'm sincerely going to miss reading your blog everyday - you have real talent and I hope you continue to use that talent to help those around you, even if it's not through a blog, etc.... Always remember that while there are "some" who try to hurt you, the are SO MANY MORE you love, love, LOVE you!!!

  4. Will miss reading what you have to share every day, Jacy. So sad that something negative has come of you sharing your heart with us. I wish it didn't have to be this way, but totally understand this decision - your family is your priority and they definitely come first! Maybe one day we will see you back blogging again (and hopefully get to catch up on married life with you). I won't lie - I am SO disappointed that we won't be getting to read a wedding post any time soon. But good luck and best wishes!!!:)

  6. I'm so sad but you are certainly right about doing what is best for your sweet family. I tried to leave a comment yesterday (loved your post!) but had computer/Internet issues. Anyway, I'm certainly sad you will no longer be blogging but wish you all the best with your upcoming marriage and move.

  9. Oh, Jacy, this is really sad news! I not only enjoyed being able to keep up with what is happening in your life, but your amazing topics and uplifting words helped get me out of my "clean the house, make dinner, take care of kids" mindset and got me to a higher level of introspection, retrospection, and all those other spections. Lol. I hope if you ever do decide to start another blog (invite only) that I might be invited. Until then I shall have to be content with stalking you on facebook. ;)

  10. Oh, Jacy!! I second Jessica's sentiments about being disappointed about not seeing/hearing wedding details! I was SO looking forward to your wedding/newlywed posts. I am so sorry that you are having to deal with someone so negative. Please know that your blog has been a place of inspiration. I wish you, Seth, and Little Dude MUCH MUCH happiness! I send love...in large doses!!

  11. So sorry Jacy. I love your blog. I am always amazed that people are so open in their blogs. Mine is pretty anonymous but I try not to write anything that would offend anyone that I know. I'm afraid of having weirdos know too much about me and my family. Maybe you can try an anonymous blog. You have a lot to offer...

  12. I have always read your blog, and never commented. However I wanted to let you know I've loved what you have written, and having gone through a similar circumstance and divorce myself, it has been wonderful to read your experiences and advice. Thank you for sharing, and good luck with your new life ahead!

  35. I found your blog months ago through mutual friends and I stayed up all night one night reading everything. I just today rediscovered your amazing words. I knew your ex from church as a young girl and was so saddened by the events that led you to this blog, but I think you are amazing and I think you have helped inspire more women to be true to themselves. I wish you and your little boy the best and God bless

    1. Anon,

      Wow. Thank you. It is really tragic, but out of tragedy comes amazing growth... I hope I have been of help- to even just one person... because then it makes it all worth it... to know that you are not alone and that there are other women out there who get it and who have been there. I wouldn't change what I've endured because it has made me the woman I am today.

      Thank you for this comment. Sorry you read every word... haha... that must have been A LOT! ;)

    2. It was worth it to read :) I guess I realized that you never really know someone or what they are capable of (good or bad). You are amazing! -Ang

    3. Isn't that the truth? I am often surprised by people... like you say... good and bad... I love it when I am pleasantly surprised by someone... when you make judgements or assumptions and then you are proven wrong. Some of my BEST friends or people I look up to most have been exactly that.

      Thanks again, Ang.

      I wish you the best!

  37. Jacy- your blog will be missed! (I plan to keep in touch via FB though) I stumbled across this blog months ago, referred by my sister in law who told me to "read from the beginning." And I did. I have since then read every post. You have inspired me in so many ways, more than you'll ever know. I will never forget your post "Be Soft" and have thought about it over and over again. You are one of the most genuine, compassionate, and personal people I have ever come across and your heart is very strong. May God Bless you always...and I'm excited for you to start your a new chapter in your life full of so much love and adventure!

    much MUCH love!

  40. Dang jacy this will be the first time in a long while you haven't been blogging. I have been following your blog since the beginning. In fact, you inspired me to start a blog of my journey. I've greatly appreciated your advice and words over the past year or so. You've definitely opened my eyes on how bad it can get but more importantly how good it can get. Good luck to you on your next phase of life!!!

  42. All the best of love & happiness to you, Jacy. God bless you as well. Who knows, maybe someday, you'll be back again & if so, I hope to read your blogs again. If not, you'll surely be spreading warmth & sunshine & kindness & hope no matter where you are. Take care.
