My creative nature has always been an important part of my life. It is a passion that drives me when other things appear to fall away or change. However, lately, it seems to be screaming in my ear and asking WHY?
Why have you lost your passion? What happened to the spark that keeps the darkness away? Where did you lose it? How are you going to get it back? And when are you planning to start?
The answer to the first of these questions is that I want to start now. I cannot allow myself to wait patiently any longer. Even if it is hard, it is what I must do. My creative side has suffocated for too long. It is time to take a chance on me.
That is why I am starting this blog and virtual shop for my crafts and handmade items. I need to get back to my roots and the person I intended to be. When I was young, I wanted to be an artist and make new things with my hands. But then, things began to change.
I became interested in life’s common checkboxes. I wanted to find a stable job with insurance and settle down with my husband and family. Kids had been part of my dream for as long as I can remember. However, there were parts of this plan that I underestimated and practically did not expect. Tremendous obstacles accompanied each goal I pursued. With these obstacles came distractions, and over time they built a barrier to the original desires of my childhood heart.
I want to feel the spark of inspiration that feeds my soul again. I want to give more time to my creative nature. Create with sincere joy and share my passion with all who visit my site. If you have ever felt that way, please feel free to share in the comments section. I feel certain that my struggles are the same as others. I am curious what you are moving forward with your dreams and while having a demanding life.
