Welcome to Old Soul Studios, We love vintage and aged items that portray a silent story about them. We create new items from salvaged items and create new stories, kind of like the makings of "An Old Soul".

Seagulls over Walmart

These seagulls are flying over the top of a local Walmart. We live an hour and a half away from the nearest beach, I feel like a seagull over Walmart. So far from home.... what am I doing here? Why is it taking so long to get where I know I belong? Since I was 8 years old I knew I would live by the sea, life and the choices I made kept me away, each time it looked like I was headed "home" there was always something to keep me away. Now I have a partner in my life that wants the same thing, we have the careers that can move successfully, we know what we want, we are ready to move and start a new adventure, every thing seems to be just right for me to finally get to live by the sea. We can't find what we want, I look and look and my house and property are no where to be found, it just hasn't showed up! Do I change what I want? or do I continue to wait? and wait and wait.... I feel like a seagull over Walmart to far from the sea.~Jacque

  1. Oh Jacque, I can so relate to knowing what I have wanted my whole life in so many ways & how diverted I have gotten off my path.
    To have a wonderful partner that wants the same thing is priceless!
    You will get there. The right place isn't available yet. That place that is meant just especially for you. I have had that proven to me over & over again. That doesn't make it any easier.
    But just imagine if a week or a month or a year before you met James, that you decided to settle. If you would have said to yourself that maybe your expectations were a little too high & you needed to change those things that you wanted, you would not be where you are now.
    Hold out. Hold on. You are on the right path. I promise you will find it!!!
    And you will understand then...

  2. Never give up. You will get what you want. It just means being patient a little longer(-: Until then you have a great place to live with beautiful things to surround you and a great guy who loves you(-:

  3. Jacque dear - my heart goes out to you. I have been where you are at times in my life. I believe that the hope is in you and James. All things are possible and often appear when we least expect. Lani
