For me, art is a big piece of my heart. It is not more important or even just as important as my family, but by pursuing it I am a better wife and mom. Pursuing it fulfills that nagging I've always had.
Hope deffered makes the heart sick,
but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

will be a journey that changes everything,
one step at a time. Not overnight.
will be worth your effort, your sacrifice,
your patience, your tears, your heart being filled.
When I finally realized my journey was really in full force and things started changing for me, I was scared to see what that meant for the people closest to me. How would they perceive me? How would they judge the changes it brought into my life and family? Would they think I was for real?
The only way to find out is to keep going. Take baby steps. They are adjusting just as much as you are. Be aware of that. Help them through the changes by not putting your new pursuit in front of them. Maybe there are days the only progress you make is simply keeping your thoughts and heart in the pursuit. Other days there is progress in other ways. Practical ways. Ways others can witness. Just keep going.
You’ve created a beautiful nest.
In it, your heart your soul
your very best.
Yet, there is a longing unfulfilled.
A place in your heart that has remained still.
You're dutiful ways pass the days
