September was quite bittersweet, as I officially bid adieu to the hub of my creative outlet: my blog, The Lioness’ Den.
The Lioness’ Den may have only been in existence for over a year and a half, but it was a place where everything I worked so hard on could be viewed in one place, one world. A universe encompassing all of my passion, ambition, blood, sweat, tears, frustration, elation. Lengthy tomes that detailed every single thought or idea I had (with the backup to prove it), and short bursts of energy that cut right to the chase.
I realized that I was outgrowing that format, and I needed to find a new way to keep sharing this work with the masses. When I started doing research into creating an official website, that’s when it clicked. Pablo Picasso was said to have made a fabulous quote which can be adapted to anyone who has a creative, artistic soul:
“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”
If you ever visited The Lioness’ Den, I send you a sincere and heartfelt thank you for all of your support and readership. Through that format, I found my life’s meaning and purpose. I wrapped up that gift in a huge box, tied it with a gigantic hot pink bow and gave it to as many as I could. Now, I can take that gift and present it to a whole new audience. The best is yet to come.
In the immortal lyrics sung in The Sound of Music: So long. Farewell. Auf Wiedersehen. Goodnight. The Lioness’ Den, I raise a glass in your memory. Maybe you’ll return one day.
