For the past week I have rehearsed in my head all the new posts and jolly happenings that I would burst back into the blogosphere with; "It's New York Fashion Week! Fall products are bombarding the shelves!" But, it all felt completely dishonest.
Most of you have followed my journey this summer, and thanks to my amazing friends in the artist community I have been able to keep this blog going. Yet, I have not truly contributed my voice and my heart into it for some time. My life took over, and I had no choice but to give in to the emotions, changes, and upheaval that came with it. It has been quite the journey. During this summer I have experienced indescribable loss, and yet I have also experienced the most beautiful gifts of friendship, love, and loyalty. It has changed me.
I wanted to come back to this blog being true to who I am now. I knew that I couldn't blog again until I was passionate, and ready to write again with a full force gusto! My voice will be alittle more honest, and my blogs more consistent. I hope you will rejoin me and enjoy all the new posts I have been patiently waiting to share with you. Thank you again for reading. I am so happy to be back.
After A While
After a while
you begin to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes ahead
with the grace of woman,
not the grief of a child.
And you learn
to build all your roads on today
because tomorrow's ground is
too uncertain for plans,
and futures have a way of falling down
And you learn that you really can endure
you really are strong
you really do have worth
and you learn
and you learn
with every goodbye, you learn…
