I can see it's been awhile since I have updated my blog. For a few months I've had to deal with a break up, a move, and trying to start a new business, while trying to accomplish writing a novel. Not only have distractions and writers block gotten in my way, but my passion for something I once loved diminished before my eyes. I began to lack in empathy and the arts of creativity. My perspective adequately equipped me with bitterness and distaste for picking up a pen or pencil. I suppose over the past few weeks, I've grown out of that dark phase that lurked above me like a murky cloud or the smog that covers the once radiant LA skies. I think what helped was the few trips I have had recently. Being on an airplane or a city bus; watching the people come and go. It has brought inspiration and newfound attitude into play. The me I once was months and months ago, is slowly finding it's way back. I feel like maybe I had lost my way, lost myself in my relationship and with the person I had spent 9 months of my life with. When I think of all the time that I wasted and all the time that has gone by, I become sad. But only for a minute. Then the me, that girl every one I know loves so much, the one that is open minded and optimistic... comes back and realize that this was a growing experience. Many more where that came from. But also, no need to dwell on what has already come and gone. Like the quote I love so much and live by (and is also tattooed on me), "A mind that is stretched by new experience can never go back to its old dimensions." ~Oliver Wendell Holmes. Therefore, I have nothing to be sad about at all. Only to be grateful there is more on the horizons. <3
Hope everyone is having a great Monday full of sunshine and love. XOXOXO <3
