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...
