Oh Man! It's good to be back to blogging! Life has changed a bit for better and worse.We moved, then moved again, and yep, once more. I have discovered a lot about my personal style and that I actually don't really like the things I thought I did. I have discovered the art of caring for myself. I say art because it is definitely that for me. It is like learning a new journey, vocation or hobby, it's hard! It breaking old habits and replacing with new positive beneficial ones, and damn it, it's freakin hard to eat right(meaning cook!), exercise, grow spiritually, fulfill your creative passion, be a positive thinker, a good wife, discover new cultural activities, be a productive member of society, recycle, make friends, nurture current relationships, and try to do all that at once AND grow house plants! You know what...YOU CAN'T! And anyone who tells you they can, is LYING! I am a terrible multi-tasker and proud of it! I would rather do one thing REALLY well then do a bunch with no real fervor or passion. I am not one of those people that thinks giving a busy performance actually makes me important. I have grown emotionally and mentally in the past couple of years in ways I never thought I would... so there's that. So that leads me to my next thought...
What's this blog all about? Whatever I post. Which will probably include A LOT of crafting(mainly sewing and quilting) cuz that's what makes me feel alive, it's my divine spark...yep I went there. I went to the "meant to be" cheese, but I am a cheeseball when it comes to the things that make me happy, the stuff that makes me geek out. And there is plenty of it. This blog is about not being perfect in any aspect of your life, cuz that's just hoopla and no one can do it. It's about not worrying about being perfect and exact, it's about making it YOU, what ever that is. It's a wee little baby blog right now, but it will grow, as will I. And when I win the HGTV Dream Home, which I will. I call dibs! It's MINE!! I will have a huge party and only invite people who can prove they AREN'T perfect. No really, I'm all about putting it out there(and I didn't even read The Secret) for the universe to bring my way.
soundtrack for this next bit: Chickity-Check Yourself ..♪..♫
I am also very new to this strange thing called "positive thinking". This is like trying to learn Chinese for me, seriously. But I have to stop! Just like you can't keep blaming the dog for that smell(cuz eventuallly someone figures out it's totally you) I don't want people to think that being negative is who I am. That I always blame something or someone else for my difficulty. I do NOT want to be that person! Because really I'm not negative at my core, I believe in happy endings and that gas prices might actually go down(if that isn't positive thinking, I don't know what is). I believe that love always wins and there will be a cure for Diabetes in my lifetime. So I think I'm on my way, all is not lost with this one.
So all this is going on in my brain and I still have to make time for weekly phone calls to explain itunes, email and general technology to my parents( I know my mom is laughing at this, but I bet my dad is kinda pissed) to be fair they have both made great strides in this department, well...mainly my dad. Sorry mom!
I hope this blog connects me to people(old friends and new)and helps me learn a few things. I hope it helps me stay on track and gives me that push that I always seem to need in the final countdown. I hope it helps me learn to take more photos of myself and be proud that I do. Most of all I just hope it helps me grow..really!
