So much time has passed since my first post. I think I've stayed away because uncertainty began filling my mind. I started to feel less brave about my decision. I don't regret it at all though because it's what I had to do.  I've also been away from here because I've been trying to enjoy the summer with my 5 year old side kick. I spend most days trying to fill them with fun for him and trying to ignore the question (that presents itself almost daily, lately)"holy crap, what am I going to do?". The beginning of the school year is quickly approaching and Luka will start Kindergarten. I'm trying to figure out what I can do for work to accommodate his half day schedule and be able to drop him off and pick him up by 3:30. After school daycare is not an option. I would also really like to be available for him. He's growing up so quickly and I just want to hold onto him a bit longer. Can we cut back so that I can be here for him? I really need a big chunk of uninterrupted time to figure things out. The hubs has taken Luka out for the day so I can have some much needed "me" time to replenish after a long week. Off I go to take myself out for a bit and try to remember...

Making shis'nit happen!

I have been dreaming this space for quite some time and today she is born! This is where I will honor my creative spirit. I'll share my creations, my plans, and my thoughts and musings along the way. My life recently took a new direction when I found my 'co-hones' and quit a job that was no longer bringing me the same joy it used to. Actually, it was completely depleting my joy most days and greatly affecting my happiness and quality of life(does couch potato qualify as a skill?). I am a firm believer that you should not stay in a job you don't enjoy. So, I finally took my dear friend Oprah's quote to heart(o.k. she doesn't realize we're dear friends but trust me we are;) "Enough with the stuff that doesn't enhance who you really are" and I quit the only job I have known since I was 24 years old(a new millennium has occurred since then!). Scary stuff!
 I am very fortunate to have the support of my wonderful husband of almost 14 years. He has always encouraged me to follow my heart. I also have the support of my (real life) dear friends and family, who have listened to my dreadful complaining and witnessed my unhappiness first hand. I am manifesting the path I have been envisioning and creating a better life for myself and my family. I am taking charge of my happiness and making shis'nit happen yo! I know this is where I need to be in this moment in time and I trust that wonderful new beginnings are taking shape just waiting to be discovered. I am so grateful to be on this path and hope that you will join me for the ride.
