for forgiveness and living

Hello! It’s been a while and a lot has happened in that time. Life has taken us on some crazy rollercoasters over the past couple months but I am finally feeling like it’s time to return to writing and sharing some of my thoughts with you. While I was experimenting with different ways of using this blog last summer, I am coming back with a more refined mindset. Here I will just be sharing small moments or trains of thought as a way to push myself to write more. It may be about my artistic practice or my everyday life but I know I want to focus more on writing rather than instructional or product type posts.

So here we are again, gracing ourselves with forgiveness and the chance to start over again and again, as many times as you need. I often get so caught up in moving forward with my life and my art practice that I forget that my past is as important as my future. I can’t just continue to move up and forward without accepting and forgiving my past self. Living through your early twenties is not easy, especially when going through a global pandemic situation, but here we are. So instead of beating myself up over things that I have done in the past that I may regret now, I have been really focusing on healing. By reaching out and mending the connections that I may have broken, I am taking control of the person I am now, rather than worrying about who I was.

That being said, I’m feeling like there is still so much further to go in my journey to become who I wish to be. Learning to step out of my comfort zone every single day is part of that. I think just being at home more has allowed me to make excuses for myself when I don’t do the things I want to do. But we could make excuses forever. The difference between people that live fully and dreamers is that the livers (lol not the internal organ) take the first step towards their dream while as dreamers only think about it. I am tired of always being a dreamer, I’m ready to become a liver! Let’s chase our dreams together. Thanks for reading.

Take care till next time,
