“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”- Socrates
It has now been three months since we moved to Dallas, and to say I am not completely head over heels with this city would be a lie. Shopping, great food, and amazing friends have left me feeling full. I found myself focusing most of my time off of my phone and computer (minus, the countless hours of work) without reason.
For the last two weeks, I went back and fourth about calling it quits, but every time the thought came into my mind I had a sinking feeling in my stomach. I still felt like there was something missing. The more I sat on the idea, the more I came to the realization that A Dash of Details is my passion. It is something I wake up in the morning for, and it is something I could spend countless hours on (even if only 2 people are reading my letters everyday). Never in a million years did I think this blog would give me so much joy and an outlet for all of the things I love. The funny thing is I was never much of a writer growing up, but sitting down at my computer screen everyday, thoughts just spill out onto the pages. This space has always been about what I love, who I am and all the little details in between.
While I don’t know where I am going just yet, I am focusing on building the new rather than focusing my energy on where I was. So, in case you missed me, I am back and ready to spill my heart out onto these pages again.
