Well, I have completely neglected this blog. A few things:
1.The reason this blog was put on the back burner was because (like you know) I was in the process of moving. It was a very busy, uncomfortable, difficult time in my life. I was juggling so much and I was so overwhelmed. Thankfully, I'm finally settled where I am and I am getting my life back in order.
2. I have decided to pick up blogging again. Of course, I have my Tumblr, but I mean blogging in the sense of writing out my thoughts each week. It was therapeutic.
3. Speaking of Tumblr, I've just created a Tumblr where I will now be posting my original poems/songs/short stories twice a week. It's incredibly nerve racking to be sharing such personal thoughts with the public, but it's time. You can check it out HERE: http://christinabracco.tumblr.com/ !!!! Be sure to follow if you're on Tumblr!
4. Upon returning to this blog, I decided to reread my old entries. My, a lot has changed since then. I'm in a completely different place. Isn't that crazy? Just a few months have gone by, yet so many things are different. I've switched gears from becoming a Casting Director. I've realized that is not my true passion. I think I was just so desperate to have an answer as to what I was going to do with my life that I settled for anything. Since then, with the help of an amazing Life Coach, I've decided that I don't need to pick one thing. I can do everything. Which is what I've always wanted. I want to dip my hands in more than one basket. I want to work behind the scenes. In shows, films, musicals. I want to reach out to people. Make a difference. Inspire. I want to be a wife and mother.
The main thing that has come and completely changed my life... writing. In the recent months I've become more serious about my writing. It's my main focus. I want to be an authoress. A story teller. I want to touch people with my words. Words cannot express how excited I am to take this passion and do something amazing with it.
I'm about to start writing my first fictional novel. I hope to release it in a year or two. We shall see. I want it to be something I can be incredibly proud of. I will spend some time making "Author Update" posts where I'll talk about how the process is going. It's so incredibly daunting, but I'm excited!
I think that will be it for now! I'm so happy to be back. It feels great to have a voice again.
Thanks for taking this journey with me! I'll be talking to you real soon! :)
