Yep. It's me....here. Promise. BIG changes, right? But change is good. And it's been a long time coming. Originally I had BIG plans. To talk about the changes....build them up and wham! Pull back the velvet curtain on the newness of it all in one glamorous swoop. But, I really don't like it when blogs I read tease with bigness, new things to come and basically leave you hanging. Yeah. Not my style. And too I find that once the idea has planted itself deep enough and has taken root, it really needs to bloom. And that's what's been going on here in Mattie's Social Circle.
It all started to bloom with a book. I've been reading a ton lately. About lots of subjects really, and not to bore you with all that, this quote I highlighted in one book has been guiding the shift in my heart.
".....You must first be who you really are, then do what you really need to do, in order to have what you want." -Margaret Young
That's where I am right now in my journey. Embracing the imperfections. Doing what I need to do.......and not looking back. Gathering pieces of joy I've left behind all these years, and putting them right back where they belong.
So Mattie will never ever be totally gone. She's in my new sweet logo. Resting on top of the flower. Like a little guardian angel. And a gentle reminder of how I got from there to here.
