Some of you may have noticed things have been a little quiet around here the last few months. There’s a number of personal reasons, and I thought I would write a small update.
Unable to pursue my chosen career in life, it has been a blessing to find a way of taking my hobby and start to create something I can be proud of. While not a full-time paid job, The Kessel Runway has brought me a lot of joy and fulfilment, a sense of purpose and direction. Sadly, my family had some devastating news last year, and it has had a lasting impact on our lives. On top of the day-to-day issues and stress, it has meant that I haven’t had the time and money to work on my blog as I would have hoped. As a stay-at-home mom, I really love having a creative outlet for my love of Star Wars and fashion, so not being able to work towards my dream has been hard. Coupled with medical issues stemming from an event in high school, this has all left me struggling to find the enthusiasm to continue. Illness in the past few months has meant I have missed Star Wars fashion news, I haven’t been able to post as often as I wanted to, and it’s hard not to feel like a total failure.
Today is my 9th wedding anniversary with my husband, and we spent some time reflecting on our time together, the ups and downs of what life has thrown at us. He has been my rock so many times, and always supports me when I’ve lost faith in myself. He reminded me about why I started The Kessel Runway, and despite being hard work at times, it brings me joy. Star Wars is how my husband and I met (and got engaged), and continues to be a huge part of our daily lives, we love having a hobby to share together. With support and encouragement from my husband, my goal is to approach tomorrow with the same excitement as I had when I first launched this blog. So, with renewed optimism, I’ll be doing a bit of catch up on news/reports, a bit of writing and planning, and making goals for the future.
Thanks for being a part of my journey,
