Oh the journeys life brings us... It feels like I have been on a rather fantastic journey lately. One where I don't always get to the computer to update my Facebook page, website, Pinterest, Google+ and this blog very often. There are pictures on my camera that need to be downloaded and edited. The technological part of this journey is not a very big one apparently. (Once I get a few more things done, I will be doing those updates. I hate to leave things hanging on the TO DO list.)
I have enjoyed this journey and found some really creative and unique souls along the way. I have found some art that I just have to follow now because I want to see where it goes for the artist. I have found some good inspiration on this journey. I have found a new focus of sorts on this journey. It is still art and jewelry but there is a twist to it now that I want to test out. This journey brought some excitement to the areas I was kind of stuck in at the time it started. Fresh air is a good thing indeed.
This is the kind of journey where you ask yourself questions about life in general, your path in it, and what you really think about it all. If you have ever been at this point, you know what I am trying to put into words is really difficult to describe accurately. I have really stopped, stepped back a few steps and looked at where I have been and where I am now. And asked that super hard question, "What do I want for the future? Where am I heading?"
Now, I am a live-in-the-moment, don't-worry-about-the-future kind of person in general. People ask me where I see myself in 5 years and I say "Happy." They ask for details and I never seem to have them. I just have a general idea of what I like and the range of things I can accept. So some may call me flaky... I can live with that. I just know that I WILL be happy and doing something I love to do. And that is enough for me.
So stopping to go a little bit further into details is kind of a big deal for me. I still cannot tell you every detail but I know it will involve art and as many friends as I can include. It will mean I need to delve into technological things more regularly and quit thinking of that as a chore so I will WANT to do it again. I envision some kind of shop or studio space in my future now and am starting to build it in my mind. I don't have any idea of the time frame I will need but don't worry about one either. Happy is still going to be goal #1.
I have stopped many times on this journey to say thank you to those who came across my path. THAT is one part of this journey I am so grateful for having! Giving gratitude has blessed me in so many ways, many of them surprising. I thank YOU right now for reading this post and supporting me that way. Lots of little and big things to be thankful for right now!
Whatever journey you are on, I hope it is a good one full of good people and things along the way. I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season, whatever they may be, and that you build some awesome memories with those you love. Thank you for being part of my journey! It has been a really great one because of you!
