I am a bougie girl: The Scary Road To Creativity

This photo was taken yesterday before work during a storm that trapped me in my car for 20 minutes. I was terrified of getting my hair wet.

Creativity can be scary...because once you walk upon its road there is no going back to the way things were before. Each time you veer of Creativity road to follow more mundane pursuits, you find yourself longing  to be back on it.  Sometimes, getting back on it can be both difficult and scary. Your family, day gig, or other responsibilities can put your creativity on a tight time budget. 

If you step back onto Creativity Road after a long hiatus, you may worry that opportunities have already passed you by. Also, it may seem that the other path walkers are WAY ahead of you on Creativity Road. 

The good news is that it is never too late. You may have to adjust your grand creative visions to something more easily scalable.

As far the other path walkers...wish them well and move forward towards your own destiny.

Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
