Welcome back! I've missed you...thanks for hanging in there. I've been moving the furniture around in here - and in my life and my bedroom and lots of places...
Sweet Simple Life sums up all the big, life-changing, very ordinary things I've learned in my forty-something years of being here and there and back again:
My list of life's wisdoms used to be far more complex and definitely more wordy, but the older I get and the more life I experience, the simpler it all becomes - family, friends, work, play, health, art, and time in Nature - these seem to be the essentials, for me. I think if you can find a way to do what you love in life, then by all means, you should do it. Because to do so enriches your soul and makes you a better YOU and may just inspire someone else or even cause an unseen ripple of change in the world, big or small.
Our creative magic is that powerful - we'll never fully know what our ramblings and art can do.
If you can find a way to share what's inside of you with others and allow your reinvention through that journey of Self, you may just thrive in ways that you've never imagined. Even if some things don't work, others will. Even if you make mistakes, you'll learn from them. Even if its messy, you can learn as you go. Even if you disappear for a while, you can always come back. Creativity is fluid and forgiving and ever-present - like a current. It's never gone, even if we step away for a little while.
There is a sweet, simple joy that comes from being exactly who you are, and knowing that it's enough. To know and understand yourself and accept yourself, as you are, can be a doorway into life's most beautiful adventures.
I'll be stashing my words here:
Happy reading and I hope you find something of value, here.
Much Love, Stacie
