Man oh man, its been a minute, but it feels good to be inspired artistically and just open to create again. It took me a while to grasp motherhood but I'm learning and growing everyday. So much has happened since I've last blogged. I mean, to be honest with you, I wasn't inspired at all. I was in a funk, pretty much the whole year. Ya know, I was just trying to get it together after having a baby. It was very difficult for me mentally. I needed to just step away for a moment and figure out what I wanted out of life as well as what made me happy. I had to figure out who the heck this new woman was. Right when you think you have all the answers, you realize you actually don't. Funny how that seems to always happen lol. For the moms out there who are maybe going through an identity crisis and maybe uncomfortable in their own skin I am here to encourage you to hang on tight! Just know that whatever you're going through, in your journey, is always going to be ok. Don't go against the grain as I did for so long, embrace change. Keeping in the forefront of your mind that through every struggle a blessing is sure to come up! I have been creating some amazing things and I have to say it feels great but is also a little tough at times because I have the baby. Happy to be back and anxious to inspire those around me ! I'm not letting anything get in my way and even if you don't have a child, I encourage you to have the same attitude.
On this day, Peace and I decided we wanted to do a photo shoot at this cool temple in Malibu,California , sadly it was closed :( Being the optimistic person I am, I decided to stop at the beach on the way back to the city! Peace has never been and I was so anxious to see her reaction to the sand, water, and animals! Malibu is a great beach, very clean, I always see dolphins and wales which is the reason a sista only dips her feet in lol! I was wearing my super cool pants from Durban, South Africa that had a zipper in the front like a built in fanny pack! Love love these pants! Peace was dressed in her cute little dress from Mexico ( Thanks Tìo Ralph) we were all cultured lol! Being that I have been traveling a lot for work, I like to buy really cool clothes for Peace and I, I'm thinking about making a memory box for her filled with all the shirts I buy her from each city/state/country ! I've always wanted to travel so its a treat for me to be able to bring stuff back!!!! Enjoy our beach moment and thanks for visiting :)
