More Than Ever

Here I sit at my newly created nook thinking about my day, whilst also mentally preparing myself for returning to work tomorrow after some extended holiday time.  Most of today was spent running errands and keeping busy so as to not think of the things that cause my heart to be sad, for one reason or another.  Sigh.

I've been thinking about alot of things lately, including changes coming and how/where I want to be in the coming months.  Solitude and seclusion is good only for a period of time; I feel like I've had my fill of both.  Although my life is filled with more friends and such compared to this time last year, my heart is longing for something more.  Maybe some of it's that I've done a great job tucking away from the world other valuable talents of mine; protecting myself from potential additional hurts, etc.  Could it be time to unleash them once again?

With that said, it's also important for me to not lose the balance of things I've found over the last couple of years, including my faith, due to the losses I've endured.  Though painful and no desire to repeat, each one has taught me much about how fragile life is.

I've a lot of faith now more than ever and hoping it will bring the clarity desired to make myself and this year the best it can be.

  1. Great nook! It's always good to connect with your needs but also look outwardly to where you can put your energies to assuage some of the pain/grief you feel.

  2. best wishes, I hope all your dreams come true

  3. I like your nook, it looks to be a very calming space to relax. I do hope you have a good year.

  4. Girl, I appreciate your awareness of needs filled and new arising. I knew for myself that the time in between - the time I took for this in between - usually is tiring, drying and rewarding. A New Year, 265 days of empty pages which we can fill according to our liking. All the best.

  5. Wishing you joy in your "Nook" of the woods!!!!
    Hugs my friend!

  6. All the Best Sophia! You can do it!

  7. Just wanted to stop by and wish you all the best for 2012. I've been away from blogging for a while, but am going to get back into the swing of things. I think I might take my cue from you and create my own little nook. I think the candle is key. :)


  8. Your writing and drawing is so wonderful.
    Yes, "losses" teach us so much even though the pain is there. Time is our best healer and Faith, and Hope. Withot it what would we have?
    Just love your little painting above.
    Hey what ever happened to the sock monkey journey? lol.. I signed up in 2010 I believe.
