I’ve been absent from the blogging and creative side of my life for quite some time. Life has been rapidly changing since early this year and I’m just now getting my balance back.
Life evolves, no matter what we do. Even if we try to keep everything the same, change is inevitable.
The changes in my life are ones I wanted and actively pursued. Even so, a small change can be a lot to take in and multiple changes at one time can be almost overwhelming. Between moving and changing jobs I’ve had little energy for writing. The thoughts have been ever present, but the actual putting them into form has been elusive.
Things are finally balancing and I’m finding my new pace… and feeling creativity resurrect in my life. It isn’t happening as fast as I’d like, but it is coming in little bursts. I’m learning to accept it, to embrace the need for rest to rejuvenate my soul and thus my creative brain.
Even changes we want to make can bring stress and in the midst of the stress I’m trying to keep in mind that this is what I need to get to a better place for my life. The bumps in the road are just bumps, not roadblocks.
I’ve long been a firm believer that beauty is all around us, but I realize how hard that is to see when you’re overwhelmed by life. When each day feels exactly the same. My soul knows that there is more to life than the daily grind. I’ll be doing everything in my power over the coming months to break the mold and create a life that is filled with beauty. A life not rushed. A life where I find my purpose and find more joy and contentment.
Balance. Constantly evolving to become who I am, to be where my soul is free.
