on Dec 16, 2010They say the longer we take to do something challenging is the harder it is to get it done. So I'm learning. I've been away from MI longer than I care to recall. A lot has happened, much of it having nothing to do with make up and my craft (which I had to put aside for a while). Thing is, the longer I stayed away the harder it was to come back. I felt somehow as though I'd deserted the family I'd established on here and wasn't sure I'd be welcomed back with arms wide open or rather if I'd deserve that welcome.
Now before you shun me with my melodrama understand that MI is the first online community of professional artists I've been exposed to that offered me the kind of encouragement and support I got on here. I had tried other sites before but nowhere else compared. (The fact that I joined in the 'development' stage when the community was relatively small might've been a factor but looking around now at the way newcomers are welcomed I doubt that that's it). You guys are truly special and it does make me wonder why I stayed away so long.
A lot has happened since I last connected with the gang and I am still on my journey to that place of accomplishment. So I'm back. To share that journey with the people who encouraged and inspired, allbeit from a distance. Just now I was reading my old blog entries and the favourable comments and believe me when I say it warmed by heart. Wata come a mi yeye.
SuperLaura, Kim, Curtis, Glen, Hal and Craig (are Hal and Craig back?) you guys are truly phenomenal. You all embraced a Caribbean gal from all the way in Jamaica as if I were your next door neighbour. I have nothing but love for MI and the community of professionals on here. Like Dorothy said, there's no place like home! U guys rock! Luv unu bad bad :-)
