It’s been a while. Two years, I think. Maybe three?
When I decided to rejoin the blogging world the first thing that I hoped for was that I would find all the same lovely ‘faces’ and that this amazing community of writers, creators, artists, photographers, and soulful sharers would all still be here for me to snuggle back into.
After that my next thought was…. will I still fit into the cozy spot I had carved out for myself? Does that spot still exist?
We’ll see huh?
So, a quick reader’s digest version of where I’ve been. (Did I just age myself?)
I’ve spent the last 3.5 years (and counting) tutoring English as a second language (primarily through conversation) to people all around the world. There are simply not enough words for this experience so I will just say that it’s been a gift to my soul and helped my mind expand in ways I never even knew it could. I’ve learned about different cultures, religions, and traditions. Heard personal stories, been trusted with the deepest secrets, watched people accomplish their dreams, shared births, and deaths…heartbreaks, and love stories, witnessed horrible pain, and been welcomed into people’s lives wholeheartedly.
While the world has been on hold for most of that time, my world grew bigger than I could have imagined.
I’m creating lifelong connections and building friendships that have made me a better person. It is without exaggeration a life-altering experience that I will forever be grateful for.
On a different note, I’ve also spent the last 2.5 years studying with the amazing Kyle Gray and earned two certifications in Oracle Card reading. (More on that later)
My family has had to adjust to life without our beloved Vivi and we’ve battled and are currently battling health issues and job changes and lots and lots of ups and downs.
Life’s a journey filled with new experiences and winding roads…but sometimes those roads lead you back to a place that feels like home. So here I am.
I can’t wait to connect and read EVERYthing.
Hello, my old friends I’ve missed you.
