Ah, it’s moments like these that I realize that I am definitely not cut out for the influencer lifestyle. It’s only been OVER A YEAR since my last blog installment. Time is an allusion and I can't keep up with it anymore......
In my defense…..there really isn’t an excuse other than I still don’t really know what I’m doing with this blog and I’ve been super busy with other aspects of my life. The whole website in general got put on the back burner until just recently when I decided to do a massive redesign and completely change the entire look and feel of my portfolio. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have fun doing it, but it was also a big project to take on when I have so much else going on in my life.
Just a quick update, I’m still working in the printing industry in customer relations and social media communications currently. I’m also in the process of changing my living situation and will soon be moving off my family’s estate and into a house in town (not quite sure which town yet LOL). I’m feeling super excited for this next chapter and the person I am starting it with.
Slowly, I’m starting to pick up the hobbies I used to do like painting and reading. I’m hoping with this new move to be able to once again have an office/craft room and be able to spend more time on the things that make me happy. I still have a dream of turning some of my work into prints to sell, but that project is taking longer than originally planned. It’s all good though, I know the universe is guiding me to where I need to be and ultimately I’ll find my way.
As always, I’m still working on other little projects related to this site and my portfolio. I hope to have some exciting updates in the next year or so, but let’s be honest, I’m not very good at keeping this part of the site updated so……it is what it is.
The last couple of years have brought so much growth to my life and I’m truly starting to trust the process and allow the universe to show me where to go. It’s hard, because I’m a control freak and feel like I always need to be in control of what’s happening, but I’m realizing that the universe will guide me to where I need to be either way. It seems a little easier to just go with the flow, rather than fighting what’s meant to be just because I don’t see the whole picture at that moment in time.
It took me a while to get to this place, but I’m so very thankful for everything that’s happened to me in the last few years, even the shitty, painful stuff. It’s all made me who I am today and I’m a lot stronger and more sure of myself than I was a few years ago. I saw a quote once that said:
“New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings” -Lao Tzo.
Man, is that not so true? A few years ago when I was going through a really rough period of time, I only saw the pain in what I had lost and didn’t realize all the things I was going to gain from that ending. I definitely stepped into a new beginning. Now, I’m excited for what the future has in store for me and have a good feeling about a lot of things to come.
That’s about it for now. There’s a good chance it will be another year before I make another post, but who knows? Maybe lightening will strike my brain and I’ll figure out something more to talk about on this blog.
Until next time, peace and love.
