After a long hiatus, I feel like I am ready to be back. Posting more and being much more creative than I have been. There was a lot of things going on in my life and unfortunately I only have so much brain power. Things seem to be relaxing around here again and therefore I have a little spare brain power to get back into my personal creativity again.
So what’s happened in my life since my last post? I got my dream job and I work for an amazing company. Sure, I really loved some of my other jobs I have held over the years, but this one is really the best. It will be 9 months soon and the honeymoon is still not over. A very healthy company with a very transparent management system helps to alleviate some of my employment “trust” issues I have. My co-workers are great and the best part (and sometimes the worst part) is I get to talk to authors all day long!
For those that know me personally, know that I love to talk and communicate with people. Some days I’m surprised that I get paid for what I love doing, I get to talk to “my people”. One of the biggest thrills is to be able to tell someone, “congratulations, you’re a published author”. I’ve had some people almost in tears of joy over the phone.
Speaking to these authors all day, has really made me yearn to write more, be more creative in my life. I’ve taken up BuJo – Bullet Journaling. I’m probably doing it “wrong”, but it seems to help keep my life and goals on track so it’s probably not wrong. Heck, I’m here writing again, aren’t I? I’ve also been active (again) trying to improve my own handwriting and even getting into calligraphy. I’ll make sure to post some of the “before” pictures and see how I develop.
Adding those two small parts back into my creativity mindset is what got me back on my computer again. It honestly feels like the protective shell that formed around me is slowly breaking and falling away. I want, no, I need to be creative in my life. My job allows for it, and now that the dust of my life is beginning to settle again, I feel that my true creativity can come back out and play.
So, what is on my plate? After some personal housecleaning, I have several projects I look to undertake – most of them focus around writing and hopefully link together.
Who’s in for a new and crazy ride???
