Personal Restoration, Renovation, and Conservation: A Project
I think it’s fair to say that these past few years have changed the world.
I know they have changed me.
Slowly, and at times imperceptibly, these changes have crept in and it wasn’t until recently that I realized the extent of these changes.
Now, I would love to say that all of these changes have been positive…that I’ve become a better, stronger, more positive person…but that simply isn’t true.
I will spare you all the details (although we all know that I’ll share stories in the posts to come) and just say this: the person that I am today is not the same person I was at the beginning of 2019.
I am physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually different.
Some of the changes are subtle…such as the grey strands starting to salt and pepper my thinning hair. Some of the changes are more obvious like my return to public school as an art teacher at our local junior high. And other changes have been quietly personal…like the addition of an anti depressant to my morning dose of vitamins.
Because of the numerous changes (within myself and with the world in general) I’ve started a new project…a journey to rediscover who I am and who I want to be…and over the next few weeks, months, year…however long it takes…I’m going to bring you along with me.
Let’s be honest, I don’t know where this journey will take me or what exactly it will entail but I do know this:
Like an old home that has weathered its fair share of storms and is showing its age, I too, am in need of a personal restoration, renovation, and conservation project.
(You could say…that I’m a bit of a fixer upper.)
And I’m ready to get started.
Below I will keep a running link list to posts on this subject and my progress:

Talk to you soon!
Me too. My life has imploded and this process of forced change and growth is so incredibly painful. Thank you for your honesty and hopeful attitude!
