Beginning Again

 

For the second time this year, I’ve had to rebuild this site from the ground up.  I can’t help but notice how appropriate it is that this second time has coincided with the beautiful coming of Spring- one of my favorite seasons, and of course, a time of rebirth and renewal! 

As the forests are once again being claimed by shades of green, I feel like I can breathe in some of the newness for myself, and use it to fuel my own new beginnings. 

I have renewed aspirations for the blog, and am now more determined than ever to deliver a new post to you at least once a week, if not more. 

I’m not 100% sure what I’ll be writing about, but that’s part of the challenge! 

Instead of waiting to write until I’ve found my voice, I’m going to write to find my voice. 

I’ll write what I know, and take you along for the ride! 

The key, I think, is to just let go

Let it flow. 

I find that I do my best work when I stop overthinking and just let myself be free to do whatever comes naturally, be it with writing, painting, drawing, singing, or even making jewelry.

When I let go of my ideas of what things should be, I make room for my own creativity. 

And that, my friends, is when the magick happens! 

Even now, I can see how much truth there is behind what I’m saying to you. 

When I first started writing this post, it sounded so stiff and uninteresting.

I swear, I rewrote the first few sentences at least 5 times. 

But then I told myself to just write.

Don’t worry about how you sound. Don’t worry about what people will think when they read what you wrote. Don’t even worry about typos.

Just write.

Just do.  

You can reread and edit later. 

You can fix your mistakes and make more informed decisions. 

You can always start over.

But first,

you have to begin
