Confessions Tuesday

{via}

I can’t believe that it has been nearly 5 months since my last confession.  The truth is, my lay-off, has thrown me off-track.  I never thought about the reality of not being employed and how my life would temporarily change.  It has been an experience to be a full-time mommy.  This time around with my second child, I have spent the majority his life solely caring for him.  In this sense, it has been a blessing- to get to spend so much time with my kids.  But I can’t deny that much of the last five months there has been a huge question mark, always in the back of my head.  Where will I be happy?  When will that opportunity come?

I changed direction in my career only a few months before being let go.  But the more time that I have had to reflect on this decision, the more I know that it was the right for me.  I spent the majority of my 20’s feeling lost.  I knew that architecture wasn’t what I was meant to do but I couldn’t put my finger on what other path to take.  This blog, which is really a journal for me, has given me so much insight on the fact that I am absolutely passionate about interiors.  All I do is dream about interior spaces and my short experience from working with clients has let me know that I love the challenge.  In time it will work out because I am fiercely committed and hopelessly in love with this thing called design.

But the real point of this post is to re-evaluate my purpose for blogging.  I started blogging thinking that I needed to put myself out there and just show my creative endeavors which quickly lead to the opening of my etsy.  But what is always on my mind is interiors.  So I am taking a blogging break to re-design my blog, re-think {and bring back} some weekly features, and of course to work on my house-the start of an interiors portfolio.  I have the time right now, and have new motivation. I promise I won’t be gone for long, I love this blogging thing too much.  It’s amazing the way that you feel connected to total strangers because of  common interests and pretty soon they are your blogging friends. It’s sorta funny.

And as far as my etsy, I am also re-evaluating.  I realize that I like to do things out of order, I guess I drum to my own tune.  Case in point- I had a baby, graduated school, and then married, totally out of order.  I have been working on a line of products with a partner and will launch a new etsy before the year is done.  Very excited to bring that to fruition.
