The Path I'm Heading Down, and Goals...

I've been seeing things a lot more clearly lately. 
I've been a mom of two now for almost two years, making my children my number one priority, and a lot of the time my ONLY priority. Beautiful motherhood consuming my days. And though they will always be the most precious parts of my life, my Self and my passions have been nudging me "Hey, let us back out..."  Slowly I have found the time to let them resurface. Finding little pockets of my days to feed my soul. 
I started my little Etsy jewelry business back up a while ago, and creating my one of a kind pieces has been really amazing. Jewelry making will always be special to me, and I hope to someday grow my small business a little bit bigger.
As for my writing, I have always found comfort and inspiration in spilling my soul on paper. Ever since I was 12 years old, it's been a big part of my life. Writing to express silly crushes or confused feelings about my parents divorce, and to later get through depression in my teen years. It has always been my outlet. My therapy. My comfort. My home. 
So I decided to return to this blog...just to write. And be raw, honest and real with whoever might stumble along and happen to read it...
I have a little black Moleskine notebook, that I am filling with poems. All the ones I hold closest to my heart. And I'm not sure yet exactly how, but I just know that someday, somehow, those words will be published in a book. A dream I've had for as long as I can remember. 
Maybe sharing this dream here, putting it out into the universe will help it someday become a reality. 
Here's to chasing passions and feeding the soul...

Coming Home.

I came back to this space wondering. Wondering if it would still be the same. To my surprise I still have readers hanging around. I looked through my old posts, only a year or two has passed since I last posted but so much has changed. I liked seeing the person I was, but I'm just not her anymore.
"Don't look back, you're not going that way..."
So I said goodbye and pressed delete. A fresh start was staring right at me. I'm ready this time around to open up and spill. I'm not who I was but I'm ready to be bare and share the woman I am these days.
What an awesome and crazy thing evolving is, the shedding of skin. Old self. Moving forward. Some things are really, really hard right now, I'm not going to lie. Some days I'm grasping for answers in the dark. But some days are beautiful and I am working on making those days outnumber the hard ones. 
It's a process. I'm figuring it all out, soaking it all in. Sometimes growth is painful, but staying stuck is worse. So here I am, back to share the journey. Life.
