I've Been Missing Myself

Dear Ones:

It's been a while since my last post I know. Honestly I have debated in my mind if I should continue the blog. Somehow I feel like a burden to people. Being transparent right now I know is hard to take because it involves a lot of stress. Then I think how the blog is an outlet to let it out and through the blog I have made friends with the most precious people who really can relate. I guess I am torn.

Lately, I really feel like I am missing myself. Photography has taken a back burner for a few reasons. Stress for one, and a lack of confidence and the where do I go from here to learn more question. Then there is jewelry. I can not tell you how badly I want to start making my hand stamped cre8tions but the finances have not been there to get started, so my etsy shop sits empty in that department. I have cre8tive juices that need to be squeezed.

I used to laugh more and not spend so much of my thought life in the area of "who knows." I know it should be a comfort that "God knows" but it really just isn't right now. I really need some encouragement so I can find myself again. I don't even know if that makes sense, but it is how I feel. I guess I would love to hear your thoughts.



  1. My precious friend ~ I love that you are transparent and I hope you will keep sharing your heart on this blog.

    I can't imagine how overwhelmed you must feel right now and it's OK to express that. I know this is just a "season" of your life, but it doesn't make it any easier when you are in the thick of it.

    I pray God will bring you some comfort...just keep leaning on Him. Love you!

  2. Keep SEEKING HIM in this 'dry' season!!! HE IS FAITHFUL!!!!!

    I know that sometimes it's hard to share your heart but it's also wonderful to have somewhere to release your feelings. PLEASE don't stop blogging. I'm sure when you look back and see how far you've come in your Journey for 'Mercy' you'll realize that God has HIS hand is ALL that you arre doing for these sweet baby girls!!! He will trade your mourning for dancing!!!! XOXXOXOXOX

  3. I have been going through a VERY weird funk ever since realizing that my first foster daughter will be going back to her birth mom.

    i have been in denial about being depressed and have no motivation to do anything. at all.

  4. So I'm not sure if you'll know this is from me, so if I mess it up, it's Stoozie with the Twosies!!

    Yourself??? Hmmm, let's see. MICHELLE......
    Well, you're spunky, you're crafty (as in the artistic way, not like the whole "serpent is the craftiest animal" way), you're giggly (an easy laugh - which is why I like you, you always make me feel like I'm funny!), you're loving, you're tender, you're compassionate, you don't hold back from relationships - you give and express and lay it all out there and I LOVE that about you.

    I don't think you're losing yourself at all. I think that Your Daddy in Heaven is reshaping you....and He's creating a Masterpiece.

    You're an amazing person Michelle. Keep the posts coming, keep the real-ness coming, keep the good the bad and the ugly coming. It's real life and we all feel the things you feel we're just not bold enough to say it. That's what makes you unique!! It may make you feel vulnerable, but I believe it holds you in Your Father's arms. After all, HE IS TRUTH. So when you share the truth, you're like your Father in Heaven.

    I love you so much....consider yourself hugged and loved!!!!
