I know what I want to be when I grow up.

Random fact- I never wanted to grow up and BE anything. When I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I'd of course say something that I thought was relatively cool, but there wasn't anything that I believed I'd be doing. There was a ballerina phase, then years later I thought I'd want to be an actress, and I've even thought I'd be a journalist. Oh, and then there was a sorta radio personality phase. Maybe a hair dresser? But in all honesty, I never really thought I'd be any of those things and I obviously wasn't.

I've never had any real drive for my future and what I wanted to DO in life until after Wyatt was born. Jokingly I remember telling my husband years ago before Wyatt was even thought of, that I didn't want to do anything with my life except shop and that brought me the most happiness (it really was a joke... but there might have been some truth behind it). I really think that after Wyatt came into my life, I was forced to either hold onto myself, or lose myself in all the hustle and bustle of raising a kid. I felt myself slipping into "Mom Depression" and sort of had an "awakening" and started doing things I loved.. things I didn't know I loved but always was interested in.

I can honestly say now that I have a real drive and passion for art and design and I can see myself doing it for the rest of my life. If the old me could see the new me, she'd be shocked! And probably stoked too. I was a lost soul back then. It's amazing how much I've grown in such a short time. I'm now really excited about my personal future. It's a really awesome feeling.

If you'd like to follow along with me on all the bazillion social media sites out there, you can! (I always follow back :] )
