As we begin to somewhat settle in our new town, I’m beginning to realize that I am exactly where I need to be at this point in my life. We’ve relocated several times before and I always explore within the first couple of days to find out what I could possibly use as inspiration. I wasn’t always as inspired as I thought I’d be in Houston, sad to say, even with the plethora of resources. I think that when you place limits on your resources and set parameters (not always by choice), it forces you to be creative and use what you have more effectively.

Since being here I’ve been inspired to draw (see above-it’s not much, but it’s more than I’ve done in a long time), which I haven’t done in years, to interact on my social media outlets more (twitter, Facebook, & pinterest) to write more. Not just in my journal, but here and here and Honey Speaks Blog where I actually share my personal feelings. I am very much a private person, but I feel that by sharing my story and life situations I can inspire and encourage others to hold on and to continue on their path.

I don’t feel the best here in our new city, yet, but I’ve learned that life isn’t about feeling, but about doing-taking action. Being in my new home will force me to take action and to do the hard things that I’ve been putting off for so long. I can see that the hard and difficult things need to be done in order for me to reach my ultimate goals. Besides, change is never comfortable.

I welcome the challenges that lie ahead of me, not necessarily happily or with open arms, but I hope to get to that point one day soon. The difficult things are what give us character and bring out the best in us. Here’s to being the best I can be and fulfilling my life’s purpose.
