Finally! An Update?!
Firstly, I have to send you a sincere apology for not updating in so long.
Secondly, I have to say "Thank you" so all those who took the time out to write to me. It truly means the world to me.
The pandemic life had put a strain on me in every way possible, from mentally to creatively. It's hard to think about conventions when the government had made it illegal to see your friends and family.
During this time I re-evaluated my life, my decisions and choices. I decided it was time to re-invent my life and rewrite the life that I wanted.
As a single mother of two, my life has been less than conventional. So far you may think "This girl is living a sad life". I never saw this, I was simply unsatisfied and felt like my entire life was about getting the bills paid.
However one thing changed, covid gave me the downtime I needed and I saw my children in a different light. I saw that they were good, I mean I have nothing but good to say about them. Proud is just the tip of the iceberg. My youngest turned 18 this year and I was ready to let go and excited to see where their lives will lead.
When I realized this, I let out a huge sigh of relief.
Next it was to change my work life. I needed my work to be more than about paying the bills. I wanted to maximize the creative aspect, I have had crazy thoughts running in my mind my entire life. Sketchbooks of randomness. It was time to get them out.
So how would I do this?
Well it begins with me selling my home, car, entire sewing office...
Packing up my kids and landing in Vietnam.
Goodbye to the basement in the suburbs.
