Well, look who is here…February has arrived along with all things Valentine. Sometimes I wonder if I am always fully awake because I feel like I blink and all of a sudden it is a new month. Do you ever feel that way? It wasn’t that long ago that the world was eagerly awaiting the arrival of 2015 and making lists of goals and dreams to be accomplished in the new year.
Last year is a little blurry for me now as I experienced some major life changes. There was a lot of good, but there were also a lot of challenges that tested my endurance, faith and strength. I learned that change is constant, and for someone who craves stability and calm, that is not always comforting.
But I learned that sometimes change knocks on your door to wake you up to something new, to give you the opportunity to revisit forgotten dreams, re-evaluate beliefs and decide for yourself whether you want to take a chance or stand still. Move forward and grow or stay where you are and slowly fade. It is not always easy to accept change, especially when it challenges you, but once the heart opens and a little light starts to peek through, then there is no stopping it!
Anyway friends, that’s a little on me and because of what seems like a million different things, I took a bit of a break from the blog, and I missed it so! But here I am today and I hope that you have not forgotten me. I look forward to sharing beauty again, sharing the talent of inspiring souls I may encounter along the way and sharing with you a little more of my personal journey through this sometimes messy, but always beautiful life.
I hope that 2015 has been treating you well. May all your hopes and wishes be well on their way to becoming realities and may you always find something in your day to be grateful for.
Lots of love, in the month of love! XO
