Life Lately and New Found Freedom

Life lately - Freedom

Oh Haiiii! I know I’ve been a bit infrequent on the internet recently. I’ve had shed-loads to do, made some big decisions, and life – changes, so haven’t been able to dedicate as much time to Arts & Graces as I would like.

BUT – here’s the deal…


My biggest bit of news, that many of you know about if you’ve read this post, is that I left my job. I handed in my notice a month ago and now the day has finally come where I am FREEEEEE! To focus on myself, my life, and living my dream of being an actor/dancer/practitioner/theatre maker/creator / general all-rounder / (Probably need to figure out a better answer to give when people ask what I ‘do’ now.)

And as a result I’m hoping I’ll have a lot more time to getting my blogging mojo back, and start posting all kinds of great content for you lovely lot over here. I’m pretty blooming excited about it, and I hope you all are too. Depending on if Sylvie stops giving me sad eyes every time I get my laptop out and forcing me into cuddles and playtime.

I know the next few months are going to be full of stress, anxiety, confusion, joy, relief, and A LOT of doubt as well, but right now, I feel like I’m making the best decision I’ve ever made, and I’m taking that as a good sign.Someone please remind me of that when I’m crying into my pillow and haven’t left the house for a week.

*Update, one week on from writing this, and I have in fact experienced all these emotions as predicted – I am now at a combo of fear, anger frustration because WHY ISN’T MY LIFE TOGETHER YET! But re-reading this has bought me quite a lot the joy back so hopefully we can take that as yet another good sign*

So yes,  that is my life. I’m sure I’ll be all change again in a few weeks as I start to understand what it is I’m actually trying to achieve. I’m pretty terrified. But also feeling all kinds of happy, positive, and ‘GO ME’ ish.

I hope you’re looking forward to the next post as much as I am! Can’t wait to get back to writing regularly again, so thanks for baring with me through this little tumultuous stage.
