So last Friday was my blogs 3rd Birthday...and I forgot. I was planning to do something special like a giveaway or a summary of my blog, like favourite posts etc. But honestly lately I've been lacking motivation and worst of all I've been feeling little creativity. I don't think I can be a blogger who produces 3-5 posts a day continuously. It's not what my blog is about nor has ever been about....for me it has been a journey about finding myself again, finding what I love and what inspires me. About finding Daydream Lily the dreamer who got lost along the way. And I think (or hope) my blog reflects that.
The first year I was posting alot of crafts, art, illustration anything to spark my creativity..I was going to alot of exhibitions and crafty things to rediscover my love for art. The second year was "the divorce" not a real one but close enough - I ended an 8 year relationship. When I couldn't find the words to express what I was going through I used quotes and lyrics. They gave me strength. Like this post Question#11 - clearly I was feeling negative about relationships.
The third year has been about falling in love again...hence the ridiculous amount of dreamy imagery and romance going on here!! Now.... now I'm not sure, but there is another big life change coming up for me. In a month I'm packing up and leaving Melbourne. Remember this post about Love vs Career Love? Well I'm moving to the Gold Coast (Australia) for love. It's not the best decision career wise for me, but sometimes you just have to take a risk.
Well that's a really short simplified version of the last 3 years and the ups and downs. I'm putting my archives up if you'd like to look through them.
Thank you so much to those readers who have gone through the journey with me... I know a few of you have been reading from the very first posts. And thank you to all the new readers who joined in along the way.
...to many more years blogging.
