"While it is very sad for me and the kids (there were many tears at the breakfast table this morning!), we are looking forward with great anticipation to our bright future!" she wrote.
"I am choosing to see the positive in this situation and I am excited to consider many more invigorating opportunities that may come my way! I poured my entire self [into] last 6 years of Kate Plus 8 [and] I can't wait [to] have the chance [to] challenge myself again [with] future endeavors!"
While she didn't detail what she envisions her "future endeavors" being, Gosselin did reveal what she plans to do in the meantime.
"In the mean, I hope [to] have more time [for] motivational speaking, book writing [and] other fun work opportunities that come my way... And maybe even some dating??!! " she wrote.
However, Gosselin did confirm she hopes to continue working in television in a later reply to a fan who asked if the reality star planned to return to her former nursing career.
"I plan on staying on TV :) But if I have to to provide for my 8 lovelies, of course!" Gosselin replied.
Kate Plus 8's series finale will air Monday, September 12.
