IT'S BEEN SO LONG
Well hello there,
My name is McKenzie and I haven't blogged in what seems like forever. For a while I was pretty uninspired. I felt like a sitting duck in many ways. The momentum had stopped. I didn't have a constant creative surrounding. I wasn't planning the next big adventure. Things were at a stand still. I have realized that we all need certain consistencies in life and mine is being surrounded by people… creative people. People to talk with and be inspired by, being pushed to create, people that want to talk about what's next, their goals and current/upcoming projects.
I soon found this in a pretty unexpected place I will say. As most know I accepted a job at Hallmark. I am sure most weren't too surprised by this, but I was! Not that the thought hadn't crossed my mind before, but I had never applied to work there. However, I believe all things happen for a reason. I am contracted (hopefully one day I will be a true "Hallmarker" as we say) but hey! I have my foot in the door! And let's be honest, it's a JOB! I am so happy to have a purpose and somewhere to be, work to do, and problems to solve.
With all that being said, I get to communicate and create now! It's wonderful! I am amazed at least once everyday working there! I am so thankful for the interactions I have with fellow employees. The people are so incredibly nice! It's unreal.
Not that I took some hiatus of not thinking about design and creating things, but they have been thoughts. I am re-inspired! I have had one too many signs telling me to get it together! Get started! What are you waiting for!? So, this is it. Here is to a new chapter of creation. Whether it's just blogging, making, crafting, picture taking, I will be posting more I hope!
My trusty personal astrologist, Josiah, tells me it's the "time" for Scorpios! Time to learn limits, start new beginnings, find new passions, release old and buried emotions, and be confident because our lives are on an upward trend! I am finding the momentum again! Whether one believes it or not, I might as well take advantage!
