Wildly the Workshop

Wildly the Workshop

My blog has become the news bulletin for my life.  Somewhere along the way I realized that I'm not a blogger.  I'm too private, and find it difficult to be documenting and sharing all the quiet, meaningful, close, epic, fun, fulfilling stuff of life.  I watched an interview with Oprah today where she said that from the time she was 32 she knew how to be herself on tv and was from that point on just herself.  I know how to be myself in my everyday real life.  I know how to be myself in friendships, human engagement and interaction, the highs the lows.  I have a pretty intimate awareness of myself offline, and actually I feel pretty confident being that human. Online...I struggle.  I don't know how it all translates sometimes.  So, instead of faking this until I figure it out, I'll share the pieces of life that feel like they're meant to be shared.

Creativity Overflow

Creativity Overflow

There have been quite a few moments over the last several weeks where I've had to step back and take in how lucky I feel right now.  I have so many different creative projects on the go and it's felt really fulfilling for me. I've always been a creative being but have lacked direction and felt as though the best way to practice creativity was safely - within our home, and our lives, where it's understood and appreciated and valued.  But I've always had this desire somewhere deep down to find my voice and platform to confidently have my art seen.

The Stuff of Life

The Stuff of Life

Life has been full lately.  We live in such a "busy" world.  People wear busy like a badge of purpose.  I try and avoid using the expression "I'm SO busy".  I don't want to be TOO busy.  Too busy for the people and things that mean the most to me.  Abundance and fullness are much better words and somehow include all those people and things that busy leaves out.  The truth is that this busyness has caused us to review and make a few adjustments.  It's not a bad thing to take inventory, realize what can fall away, and what's integral to doing life the way you want to and in being the person you want to be.  Especially before you're too busy to take stock, only to finally have time one day to realize you've been filling your life with things that aren't who you want to be.

31

Late August!  It's my birthday weekend, and so, in addition to feeling the magic of this time of year, I also feel a little nostalgic around my birthday.  I've been reflecting and mulling over the last year.  I've officially spent a year in my thirties.  It wasn't necessarily how I envisioned being 30, or what that year would bring (but when is life ever as you expect it to be?)   Overall, I would say it's been a year of smoothing out, softening into and blossoming.
