Today I'm homesick, but a cure is on its way.
I don't miss business suits, long commutes and climbing the corporate ladder. But I do miss the diversity in business, the arts and people, not to forget the fog.
The move wasn't all that bad
The Midwestern cost of living has been a God send. I don't "have to work" to exist and now have the time to creatively breathe.
But I still miss the diversity of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Hubby and I have been working on organizing a benefit concert right in the middle of the busy holiday art & craft show season. Like we weren't busy enough! It's for a couple of great causes, and thankfully we won't have to freshen up our set and play.
It's a good thing to help others. It takes the focus off of "us".
But God wired into me the need for some "me" time. A time where I can be alone and create. Pour my favorite beverage, put on some good tunes, and spread my supplies all around me and just dive in...for hours! One thing I have learned is this; Even though I feel like I could just burst if I don't creatively express myself, I won't. And when I finally can focus on my creativity, the outcome will be good. So I have made a decision.
Rest up and dress up
Tomorrow I will dress up in clothes that make me feel creative and special. And tonight? I will get some much needed rest. I now have a date with my pillow.
Yes, I've named my pillow.
