WOW, it has been awhile since I’ve been here. I feel like a newcomer to my own blog, so here is a big WELCOME BACK to ME!
Warning: This will be a very “linky” post. =)
So my last post was in June 2010, and it is now February 2011! SO much has happened. I have successfully pulled off a 2nd Luna Festival as well as a 2nd Christmas Crafts fair through my business Inspired Living. I also registered for the University of Guam in the fall and completed my first semester back at school after a 6 year hiatus (and two children later!)…with a 4.0 gpa at that! I am quite proud of myself. We had a great holiday season, with the usual people visiting back for the holiday festivities. I did some writing on World Pulse, an online magazine/community for women all around the world to share their stories. Here is my journal, called Breathing Life In.
I have continued to be a weekly faery poster on My Everyday Magic, and I intend to continue as long as I shall! Just recently Kate, who started My Everyday Magic, has started a new blog in honor of loving our bodies and embracing authenticity. The blog is called Our Body Blog, and I found the courage to share my story, just as Kate has. HERE is my story. It was terrifying, exhilarating and incredibly freeing to share my body story.
And now it is 2011!
I am taking this semester off from school to focus on my home and family, as well as my job at Nuts & Grains. I am considering the possibility of taking over the health food store. It makes sense, as my mom has put the last 15 years of her energy into building it and keeping it going. I am only 26, and my kids are finally coming out of toddlerdom, so it is quite possible that I could handle taking over a retail/food store. I’d definitely want to create some kind of business plan and have a firm vision of what I see for the future of the store before I take over all the responsibilities. Also need to hammer out lots of financial details! So that’s what I’m thinking about these days.
My relatives are visiting, as we will be holding a ceremony for my aunt Row, who passed on recently. I am happy to have visitors in the house, it sure livens things up a bit and pulls us out of our usual routine and comfort zone!
Well, I thought I’d have tons more to share, but you can check out some of the above links to delve further into what I’ve been up to lately.
OH! I almost forgot to share, my word for 2011 is GRACE. Last year was breathe, and I feel like that word will stick around, as I am still learning to breathe (see above link to the Body Blog)…but I am definitely feeling the word Grace as my overall theme and aspiration this year. Its already been transforming me, the way I relate to others, and the way I handle a great many situations!
Ok, that is all for now, I feel good about being back here. Its like coming home. Hopefully I can update often enough to catch some readers! Have a beautiful and magical day everyone!
