Growth.


Change is in the air for me. How little did I know, this adventure would cause me to take a deeper look at myself. Many questions fill my head these days:

Who am I?
What do I represent?
Do others see the real me?
Am I allowing myself to shine through my desire to be known?
Am I staying true to myself?

Some days, the glimpses I catch of the artisan within me, are comforting and expected. Other times though, I am caught unaware, maybe being a bit shocked at first to see what surfaces in good and bad ways, allowing me to reach outside of my comfort zone, albeit slowly at first, to delve deeper into the artisan and person I crave to be.

I have come to one conclusion though...finding oneself can often feel like scraping years of habit and routine off with coarse sandpaper but what I find underneath is so shiny and new.

I enjoyed your deep thoughts...
I feel the same way quite often.

I wanted to share this great quote that I love:
"Life isn't about finding yourself...
it's about creating yourself."


I'm not sure who wrote that, but isn't it inspiring?

best,
Sylvia C.

I really enjoyed your post...I think everyday that we put ourselves out there we are adding another piece to the puzzle that is us...Everyday of our lives we grown into what we will become someday. I have been around a longtime and am not through growing in my creativity or myself...I hope I never do..
