Its Been Awhile

Life has been full of, at times, overwhelming changes in the past few months.

New Job

New Address

New Car

New Legal Marital Status

oh, and my tiny little amazing human is going to school.

So I’m sure a lot of people will think that this means that I would have had plenty to talk about, and there was, but I wasn’t ready to share my inner struggles and outward changes with everyone. I knew that life was going to be an interesting journey this year, but I wasn’t prepared for the emotional toll it was going to take on me or how much I was going to second guess myself.

But here I am, on the other side. I recently (as in, its still peeling and making me itch like I am some kind of crazy person) started another tattoo project to commemorate these changes.

It was perfectly described by my artist as a bird of light and infinite energy. She is in full flight, graceful, beautiful, loved and powerful. Those are all things that I never accepted as being a part of myself, but this past year has forced me to rethink not only my life, but myself. Its been a year of spectacular growth for me, one that has made me shed more tears, smile more times and grant myself more forgiveness than I have ever allowed myself.

What this really means it that I have lots to say and I am now ready to say it.

Wow, that felt good.

And So It Begins

I am literally starting this blog while cycling at the gym hoping to somehow make it to 60 45 minutes. So if this post ends midway through, it’s because I have collapsed or fallen off due to my inability to multitask.

Things have changed drastically in my life in the past year and there are more changes to come. Some that have been incredibly challenging and some that were more liberating than even I anticipated.

I am here to vent, share and hopefully give you some laughs. There is certainly potential for tears, confusion and joy as well.

Cheers.
