Welcome! This is my first time blogging. And I’m doing it from my phone… but I digress… already!
So I have this deep desire to write, and have for a very long time. I kept a journal for a while, even in my adult life, and I remember trying to write a novel one summer when I was maybe 12. I love using words to express my thoughts, and seem to be able to write better than speak (especially under stress!!).
I call this blog “Musings of a beautiful mess” because when I get in my head it feels messy.
Like walking into a busy airport. But there’s such creativity and wisdom up there! It’s difficult to create in a pristine environment. Don’t get me wrong: I am working towards simplicity and quiet! But things can be simple, and messy, and beautiful all at once. Like me.
As a 35 year old on her second marriage with 3 kids plus 4 stepchildren and 2 granddaughters, my life is messy. My house is sometimes too small, but usually too big. 7 of us live there. Me, my husband (more about him later), my 2 daughters from my first marriage, his 2 sons from previous relationships, and the youngest is our son together. We are dreaming of a tiny house. Someday….
I have a full time job which although it’s not providing me with the joy and purpose it once was, it’s paying the bills… bills: another mess. I’m hoping to homeschool my younger daughter starting this summer, and I’m keeping my employment options open (for now).
It’s messy when you contemplate change.
Growth is messy. Life is messy. But it’s oh so beautiful… and this is my opportunity to remind myself (and you!!) of that!
Until next time,
