Whew! Time Is A Flyin...

Well Hello Everyone,

It has been so busy around here that it's not only the giant heat wave that is making it hard to catch my breath. The air here is so thick it feels like you could chew it.  I have been catching up on all the things that were left half done and undone while I was sick. I have been making things for Celebrated Lady, fulfilling my duties as a maid-of-honor, nurturing my relationship with my niece, paying some much needed attention to my cat, ...cleaning/unpacking, and all the time trying to find the energy at the end of the day to sit down and read a book and not just veg out and watch big brother late night. But amidst all of this chaos my main thought is that...I'm back! This is me, swirling around in a whirlpool attaching things as they come and juggling it all, and keeping my calm. It can be stressful but it makes the calm moments that much sweeter and that's what keeps me going.

I say this because it's defiantly been a learning process for living a life after school. From the time I was 5 to 21 school was what I worked at, my mom would call me a grade junkie, I loved the thrill of just trying to see how high of a grade I could get, how well would I place in the art show, would I graduate with honors? The thing is, all of those questions have been answered and I was left without knowing the new ones.

But I realized that life is not knowing the questions it's about the journey you take to finding the right answers for yourself. The beginning and the end don't really matter so much it's the part in between that's worth remembering. All the fun times with friends, the giggles of my niece, and the loving hugs and time spent with my mama.

All my life I have planned it out, I was always thinking of what I wanted to be when I grew up, what college I was going to go to, and how I was going to do everything. No more. I mean a little planning still has to happen but I'm finally happy to let life take it's course, to see where life takes me. I am happy.
