Rebirth

Hi World. It's me, Irene your favorite bargain hunter and rockstar extraordinaire. After much praying and contemplation, I have decided that I am going to close this chapter of my life. But rest assured that that does not mean the story has ended, but instead it is a beginning of a new chapter. Please come check out my new blog at 

http://yubargainrockstar.wordpress.com/ 

Just as I am figuring out and learning the ropes of this new format, my journey ahead will also take a new course. I also wrote my first entry and while it was a difficult one I am ready. Check it out here.

Yours Truly ,

Irene

What Money Can't Buy: Challenges, Transitions, and a New Journey

Hi Readers and YuBargainRockstar fans, I know I have not posted for a while and I actually have multiple entries in my drafts waiting to be uploaded. However, today I wanted to write an entry about "what money can't buy" and hope that this can serve as an inspiration to everyone (rich or poor, frugal or pimp-daddy status) because no one can escape the reality of hardships and heartaches.

Recently, I have been going through probably one of the most difficult periods of my life and problems seem to pour down like a thunderstorm daily. It's been difficult and there were many days when I just wanted to give up completely as the fires I put-out would only burn twice as hard. And perhaps that's the problem, I was doing this all wrong and relying on own strength and abilities to do it all by myself.

Since accepting my inabilities to do this alone, I have reached out for help and surrounded myself with people who love me as I am- flaws and all, and while the journey did not become easier the affirmation and positivity has really given me a jolt of energy and realization that I have an army of support who will stand by my side. But most importantly... God loves me and will not forsake me.

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand
- Isaiah 41:10

I pray that while I cannot prevent challenges from arising, I will rise to the occasion and allow God's glory to shine through.  On a completely random topic, I am considering to transition from the Blogger Format to the WordPress System, as I had been advised on some attractive attributes on the later.  I have not made a firm decision, but would like input from my readers.  I hope that I can receive closure on some of my difficult situations and perhaps a new blog will help resurrect that old spark but wonder if continuing on with this platform
 will serve as a better outlet.  What do you think?


Should I keep the Blogger Blog or start fresh with WordPress?



Yours Truly,

Irene
