Sigh... Still not enough time

Sooooo, last post was in January with hopes of finding time to keep up with my Bloggieland. Honestly, I just don't know how to juggle so many things; family, home, full time work, friends, etc. I so admire those who do it seemingly with ease. Truth is, some of my happiest, most content moments were spent connecting with those of you I've had the pleasure of meeting here and through my on-line shop. I'm not giving up the hope of finding balance - I've always sought it - hence the chosen name of Harmony Quest.

I played with my digital art today for all of a whopping half hour before work and I loved it! I must admit though, that so many months have gone by that I have forgotten a trick or two. But I enjoyed myself just the same. I must make time for more!

I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful weekend of family and Easter blessings and treats. As always, I send you all the very best of wishes and hopes that you're content in all that you do. xox

It's been a long time...

Well dear ones, it's been such a long time that I'm sure you think I've forgotten about you and dropped off the face of the earth! Not so at all. I think of all my dear friends I've made in Bloggieland and through my Etsy connections very often. I've missed you all!

I've gone through many, many changes in the last few months. I must say, most of them positive ones. However, through those changes I haven't found the time I'd like to keep my online business going or post here. I endeavor to structure my time so I might one day soon open my shop again and run it as a part time business. And... I certainly want to get back to Blogging as I have found so many truly talented, beautiful, giving friends here that I want to stay connected with.

I have been working full time for the last 3 months as a Guest Services Agent in the Concierge Lounge at a hotel resort in my city. I absolutely adore this job! I meet the most fascinating people from all parts of the world and live vicariously through their life's journeys that they share with me. It truly is a perfect fit for me. Always curious about people and how they live, my appetite is quenched through my interaction with the guests.

What will my future bring? Of that, I am not certain. But for once, I'm OK with that. I am learning to let go of the need to have everything laid out and planned. I am grateful for today and I look forward to tomorrow. That's enough for now. That in itself is a huge lesson for me - the one who likes to be in charge of destiny. I laugh just thinking about that. Destiny is teaching me who's really in charge and I'm liking it. I'm moving forward, not away.

My thoughts and good wishes are with you all for the best of health, happiness and contentment for this year and always. Here's a Year at a Glance Calender for you - hope it reminds you of me when you look at it - it comes with hugs and a wink ;o) The meaning behind the collage art can be found a little down the page in a prior post if you're curious. Take care of you ♥xox♥
