One year ago

You are an artistic person...

One year ago on this day I was lying in a hospital bed, recovering from my first ever surgery. Desperate to put an end to my sudden emergence of health issues.

One year ago I was mourning the end of my 20's and getting ready to say hello to 30.

One year ago my marriage was in trouble. My husband and I had grown so far apart we were on the verge of separation.

One year ago I was not journaling. I did not even own a single journal.

One year ago I my camera started to gather dust and my creativity seemed to vanish.

Today things look very altered from that distant reality.

I'm not where I would like to be health-wise yet but I am working with a fabulous naturopath and am on my way.

Today I am counting down the days to my 31st birthday and it is now a number I am okay with. I am embracing this life.

In this moment my marriage is healing. We are communicating with feeling and sharing with love. We made it through the most difficult test our relationship has ever seen.

Today I am working on filling my second journal and am slowly feeling my way through a daily writing practice.

Today I am comfortable calling myself an artist. I am comfortable exploring different mediums. I am back on my creative path.

It really is amazing the difference a year can make. There is a lot to be said through self-exploration and the healing that comes with it. Cheers to another year!


  1. So, how did you decide that you wanted to make all these changes and which changes to make?
