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♥

Wishing you the best in all you do for 2010.
Changes in life are good. What dull souls we would become if we didn't reach for new things in our lives.
Hugs....Amy
