So apparently it's been awhile since I've lifted off on here! Sorry to have stayed away for soo long...I've been on a long self journey/recovery mission. It was far too long & painful but it was for the best! I am back & whole & better than before!!
The road here was full of tears...losing myself to find myself again... only to wander around lost again. I appreciate all your messages, prayers & encouragement!! God is good & more faithful than I! Heartache is worse when there is no closure (if you hadn't noticed all those Backstabber necklaces that popped into the shop...lol)... I had been living in what felt like the eye of a tornado...there was calm right next to me but I knew that at any minute I would get torn apart again by my fickle heart.
Closure...sweet release!! I don't know why I waited soo long to ask for it...I guess I was afraid of the finality of it. I kept thinking I would be lost once I knew it was completely over between us, that all hope for my future would leave me. I was wrong...what I thought was missing in my life (him) was really me missing that closure. It was healing... therapeutic even! I found myself laughing while sweating my butt off working out this evening :) First time in awhile where I felt genuinely happy! Praise God!
I leave you with these few thoughts that have been whirling through my brain...
1: Never ever not ever let a man become your whole life!!!
2: Be strong...
3: I am working on a new ling of jewelry called Reconciled...I am sooo excited & cannot wait to share it with you!
4: I'm still crazed with work so please, if you haven't already, come over to FB & play with me here!!! My newest work is always posted on there first & most of the time it never makes its way into the shop!
5: Thank you for not giving up on me!!! I love each & every one of you & pray for you all often! There was a time not too long ago that I thought about closing up shop, my inspiration left me when he did. A dear customer turned bestie told me that I needed to take him out of the equation, that my jewelry was an inspiration to her & others & that it wasn't just about me. That my designs make others happy & lift their souls :) Sweet words I needed to hear...but I do wish that just every once in awhile something was about me...lol
6: This too shall pass!!! It will... I promise! If you are going through a painful spell in this journey please message me, Id' love to talk to you!!
7: Happiness IS a choice!
8: I love to love to love you!
9: Last but not least...the chain headpieces I made for the last fashion show have not made it into the shop! Please message me for custom orders!!
10: If you're happy & you know it clap your hands *clap*clap* :)
