Spread the love

I’ve been waiting until the time felt right to share this poem…

Still waters my reflection pool 

A canvas of introspection 

The longings of my soul 

Soft whispers echo wistfully 

Reverberating in the sands of time

My heart’s yearning a tic tock chime

Thunder claps of mourning 

Brewing into a tempest storm

Waves of sorrow crash ahore

The sun and the moon collide 

Time stands still in endless night 

An eclipse of hope on the horizon

It’s remained a longing and need for many big changes in my life. These changes have not been brought to the surface, but are in the works.

As some of you know, I’ve recently been contemplating big changes to come in my life. I seem to always think on things for a long while, until I feel I’m going to burst at the seams from so much over thinking. This then turns into me making a symbolic outward gesture of the change brewing within…aka usually a new haircut/style (I promise some photos to come soon πŸ˜‰).

Last month was my birthday, and I’ve always seen it as a true gift that I  enter a new year during the peak of harvesting season. It’s a reminder to harvest the growth of the last year and to make room in my life for a new season of growth and possibilities.

I took the plunge and cut my hair from my from the middle of my back to just above my shoulders. For me it was a move of bravery and a transcendence into a new chapter. I decided this chapter is going to focus on diving head first into my longing for more creativity and adventure. I’m making time to finish important projects and getting more clear on my path as a writer and artist.

I think it’s important to hold myself accountable and share my vision and journey. It brings me a chance to be honest with myself and monitor my progress. Here I feel at home knowing the friendship and community offered so freely. It’s such a wonderful feeling knowing that I have such an amazing place where we come together to encourage, inspire, and help each other grow.

I’ve been working on finishing the illustrations to β€œToo Much Green Isn’t a Good Thing.” I’m hoping to be finished and ready to self-published before the end of the year. I want to have it available both as a free ebook as well as a children’s paperback storybook. 

Some other things in the works, my husband and I deciding on where to settle down and buy a home, changing to a job that both satisfies my creative nature,but also enables me the flexibility and time to dedicate more time and energy to my own creative pursuits. 

Not to mention, spending more time helping my blog flourish. I’d like to start a writer’s challenge of sorts using my artwork. I also have been playing with the idea of starting a podcast or youtube channel where I can share stories, poetry, and my drawing process. 

I want it to be a creative corner encouraging others to dance with their fears and self doubts. A place to encourage and support others to step into their own light and inner magic and embrace their shine. 

Here’s to a season of harvesting the growth we’ve accumulated and stepping into and embracing the magic of new adventures to come! πŸ’—

    Your post is another “whisper to me,” I believe, that God wants me to make some changes too! I will show this post to my precious wife and let her see for herself… Yet one more sign to trust…

    1. Sometimes those little whispers or nudges come in the most unexpected ways. πŸ˜‰ I hope and pray that that the changes you feel are calling to you and your wife comes with so many enriching and priceless blessings! 😊 ❀️

      My husband and I have been having a lot of difficult, but necessary conversations to help us move forward and make changes. For him change is particularly uncomfortable after growing up with his dad in the air force and having to move around so much.

      I empathize with his need for security before making a big decision. Though, we’ve definitely talked about sometimes we just have to take a leap faith as there never any sure guarantee and the unknown is inevitable. However, the autumn weather is always a beautiful reminder for me who truly wonderful change can be.

      I am definitely loving my new hairstyle. 😁

    1. Thank you so much, my dear! 😊 This is definitely a magical season full inspiration all around, I’ve just started part one of a foreseeable Christmas series…with some illustration ideas in mind! 😊 πŸ’– βœ¨πŸŒˆπŸ’žβœ¨

      1. The you Merit! 😊 πŸ’– Christmas has always been a magical season of time with family and friends. The shift from the beautiful autumn colors to the magic of glittery freshly fallen snow. May the season bring you much inspiration, warm memories to fill your heart in the years to come, and much joy! βœ¨πŸ’žβœ¨ Lots of Love, Jenna πŸ€—
