It’s been almost two years since I last posted. Well, since I decided to start blogging. A lot has happened during such time: started a new job, got a new car, lost my dad, miscarried, lost my grandfather and three uncles, moved to a new store, battled wills with employees, almost gave up multiple times, met new people who will have forever changed my life, moved to a new state, found myself. It’s been a wild 20 months and because of that I have come to realize writing – whether good or crappy – would probably be the best thing for me right now. So, in an effort to offer what I promised I’m embarking on a month long post-at-least-once-a-day-about-anything-and-everything-good-bad-and-ugly blog blast. I can almost guarantee you that it’ll be pretty blah, but from my heart to yours. In either case, it is better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. So lets do this!
Everyone calls me Pearl. Well mostly everyone. I currently reside in Vancouver, WA and will probably live around this area permanently (look at me mom settling down!). I'm an Office Manager by day and a wife/fur mom/writer/wanna be singer by night. I'm not the greatest writer. Sometimes I can just go on and on. But, I do like to write. I chose to start blogging because I want to be able to provide some sort of inspiration. I want to find a way to make a positive difference. It is so scary watching the world develop the way it continues to do. The hate crimes. The sexual violence. The bombings and shootings. I want to be able to shed some hope. Even just a sliver. Something to help someone take another step in their day. I started this blog in the hopes I could help change a dark and hatred filled world. I'm not exactly sure I'm actually doing it or not. But, I'm trying. I’ve had some pretty dark disappointments in my life so I know how hope can push someone on. My past has helped me build character and made me a stronger person. I hope to help someone out there through my blogs to find comfort, to find the things that makes life exciting again, to find healing, or even if it’s just to motivate their life because I know how important it was for me to have someone during those dark days to help me keep going. I trust that everything happens for a reason, even when we’re not wise enough to see it. After this past few years I now firmly believe that it is never too late to be what you might have been. Remember, happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions. I hope to take all of the sandy situations in your life that feel like you're sinking, and help refine them into the gemstones that make you everything you are. xoxo
