Hello! I took a little bit of time off from blogging after doing Blogmas and writing 25 blog posts in 25 days. In this time I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. I don’t know if it’s the state of the world right now or what, but I’ve had a bit of a what am I doing moment. If you didn’t know, I was an air traffic controller for about 7 years. I quit roughly a year and a half ago for multiple reasons (read more about that here).
Since then I have been at home with the boys, enjoying the moments I have with them while they are so little. I’ve been attempting this blog thing, and honestly it’s just not really going anywhere for me. I love writing and creating, and I will continue to do that, but there is something else that has just been nagging at me.
I know for a fact I don’t want to be a stay at home mom for forever. I have nothing against it, it just isn’t for me. I am one of those people who needs to be in motion, and while I am technically in motion all day long at home with 2 toddlers who never stop fighting, there is a stillness to it too.
As long as I can remember, I have been interested in interior design. As a kid, I would draw my room out on graph paper to play with furniture arrangements, draw elevations to play with colors, and always wanting to do something crazy like paint my room black and silver or maroon.
I actually put interior design on my application to Arizona State University. I changed it before ever enrolling in a class, but I guess maybe the instinct was there.
I also got my certification last year to be a certified interior decorator. But I quickly realized that that certification taught me nothing in the grand scheme of things, and I got discouraged and scared and that’s sort of where it was left.
Something has lit that fire under me again, and I think I have truly realized this time that life is just too dang short to not do what you love. So my huge goal is to become a successful interior designer. I haven’t exactly settled on the path to this yet, whether that means going back to school or online school or who knows what. Just putting it out there that that is my huge scary and uncomfortable goal. I hope that if there is one on your heart, you will consider jumping in and going for it!
Also – if you have a space in your home you need some help with and wouldn’t mind letting me practice creating mood boards and solving problems for you, leave a comment or send me an email!
