I came back home very at peace with my life. I'm not sure if it was the slow pace of the Cape, the life experiences that I was immersed in or seeing myself through the collective eye of the group but I certainly came home grounded and content with the world that surrounds me.
Since I've been home I've spent all of my time soaking up my little family. I have not stepped into the ScrapCave and have not spent much time online. I feel very snail like this week and that is probably why I'm loving this picture that I practically laid in the wet sand to take.
Before I left I had fallen into a bit of a funk that was spanning all aspects of my life. After the long weekend I have a renewed sense of purpose, appreciation and joy regarding my life.
I found in my reflection a renewed committment to putting my family first. This is something I feel I have a good handle on regarding my day job but haven't quite found the balance with my creative pursuits.
So, I'll be taking time for more reflection. Giving myself permission to breathe, to sit still and discover my primary objectives creatively so that I can ensure I'm spending my valuable time on the most important aspects.
I'm thinking about bringing more structure to the blog with regularly scheduled posts & features but first I need to understand what keeps you coming to visit me in blogland. Please feel free to leave a comment or send me a note at withoutfilters at gmail dot com sharing your thoughts.
