back to blogging

back to blogging

Sometimes life happens. Sometimes you have the best intentions, but the world has something else in store for you. Sometimes you just have to let go and focus on what is coming towards you instead of chasing what you think you should be doing

That 'sometimes' has been an 'all of the time' for me for the past six months or so. Right when I think I'm getting in the groove and can focus on some other desires, boom. Nope. Curve ball. And that curve ball hasn't been a bad thing. It's just been taking me away from my online universe that I've been wanting to nurture and grow.

But lately my soft creative voice has been bringing me back. Gently tugging at my pant leg and whispering, "Hey. Hey, dear Randi. I've got some things to say." And I would hate to be rude and ignore such a sweet prompting, so here I am. Back to blogging.
