“Open your arms to change but don’t let go of your values.”

I was going to come right of the gate with a run down of what I’ve been up to the past few years– 8 years to be exact. I don’t think I could do the past decade (nearly a decade) justice, nor would you want to absorb all of that at once. What I can tell you is that I am back once again.

The details of the past will trickle out in the upcoming posts, I’m sure. For now, let’s just say things went awry. I’ve spent the past two+ years putting the pieces back together and feel like I’m in a much better space now. As a matter of fact, I am doing really well.

Although it took a proverbial back seat, my spiritual practice remained in the car during this ride. Was I super diligent? Hell no. I am finding more and more stability in it. Sitting in silence, walking with intention and all that has provided me with a solid base to look within. I blamed myself for a lot of what happened, and rightfully I should have. At the same time, it wasn’t healthy to dwell on that self blame and I started to come out of the doldrums. Though my life was in a state of retraction, there are indisputable positive things to have come out of it.

So what’s the plan going forward? Well, like my original intention many moons ago, it’s my hope that my experiences can help others possibly cope with similar situations. Precious Metal was always an outlet for me to bare my heart and soul and that will continue as things move along. Some things may change, but be certain that my voice will remain the same.

Without sounding tacky or indignant to the truth behind this very ordinary adage; may my words and experiences benefit all sentient beings!
