Turning Dreams into Reality

How often do you step back and assess your life? I'm not talking about comparing your life to that of friends, family or peers. I mean truly looking at who you have become. Is it what you expected? Are the things you deem most important front and center? Even more important, are you happy?

I've spent much of the last five months pondering these very questions. Assessing my life and making decisions, big and small, to adjust the sails. It amazes me how quickly we can head down a path, only to look back and realize we're headed toward a dream that was never ours to begin with. The influence of advertisements, social media, and even friends or family can so easily make us second guess our choices, promising a future that seems oh so desirable. Sometimes we just need to hit pause and reassess.

So that's what I've been doing. I decided to step away from the blog. Tyler and I have been making a lot of big decisions lately, and I didn't want anything to jeopardize those plans. The thought of accidentally slipping a piece of information before plans were finalized simply gave me way too much anxiety! I didn't want the blog to rush any of our decisions. I enjoy sharing my thoughts and ideas, but I don't want this space to force the process. Simply put, most good things in life are worth the wait.

So for now, I'm back! I can't promise regular posts, but I can promise an honest look at life as I know it. I have so much to tell you! Stay tuned. More to come as we embark on turning our dreams into reality.
