Creating . . .
It’s been quite a lazy Sunday over here. Well . . . that is if you don’t include the 4:30 am wake up call to work a few hours on my day off to make sure an event went smooth. The rest of my day has been filled with random naps, lounging, cleaning and getting the bulk of my things put away from the move.
I know I haven’t blogged in some time, and I know that a lot of you know how much has happened since. Its been a hell of a 21 month stint here in Hawaii. I only now FINALLY feel like I have paid my dues by working from the ground up alone. And now, most of my essential wants are in place to start breaking the surface and living the way I’ve always wanted.
- I snagged a dream job/opportunity that is challenging me and pushing me out of my comfort zone day after day to be the career woman I always knew I could with much more growth ahead.
- I live in a beautiful 3 bedroom apartment in an amazing location with an ocean view, kitchen and the space to do so many things.
- I’ve reconnected with an amazing man that I met last year who just happens to be the love of my life and hopefully my husband one day.
Lots . . . right?
There is plenty of explaining to do, and plenty of things that have gone on in between those events, but I’m sure the stories will unfold as I go back to doing something I love . . . writing.
It’s quite sad how much my creative outlets have been squashed by the need to survive out here. My full attention and energy has been given to this pursuit and has left me uninspired and ready to figure out what I really want out of life all over again.
For some, figuring out what you REALLY want is easy. For me, Its been pretty difficult as of late. But, I do know that my first step is to just let this all out there the way I used to.
Once again, I’m not sure of the direction/flow of this blog, but do I really need one? If a lifestyle post follows a recipe post follows an organization or insight post, does it really matter? Balancing Val is about this crazy journey and as the name implies, the scales are always tipping.
