I have not written you in awhile. I have been contemplating shutting the site down for some time now. It is not that I do not love you but it is the simple fact that I have transformed over the years. The things I used to love covering I do not anymore. I can care less about who wore what on the red carpet. I care more about why they are able to walk the carpet. For example, I would like to know what hardships they have faced and how they overcame them. I prefer to share this type of information with the world. Many of you know that my calling is teaching and I ran from it for so long. However, I surrendered and embraced that teaching does not only happen in the classroom. It happens in the streets, on social media platforms, in the library, on the phone, in a Starbucks, etc. You get the point so I am going back to the basics. I am going back to teaching. Teaching is my ministry.
Over the last few months, I have met wonderful people in my travels and during my interactions while giving & attending socially conscious events. I just yearn for more in life instead of watching others live their lives while I write about it without inspiration.
So on this date, I choose to live. I choose to listen to God.
“If you begin to understand what you are without trying to change it, then what you are undergoes a transformation.” ― Jiddu Krishnamurti
So this is not a goodbye for long. CourtneyLives.com will be launching soon.
I will be sharing stories of life and travel. So stay tuned.
I love you with all of my heart.
