I’m not going to lie, August has been one hell of a month.
Life has this wonderful way of putting things in your path to test you, to see how far you’ve grown. I’m happy to report I passed. This month threw quite a few kinks into my life. But hey, we survived relatively unscathed.
The most important thing of note? The beginning of August denoted a huge life change for myself. I decided after much deliberation that I was going to take the dive and begin doing my art full time. I’m still working out all of the kinks and making my way through this transition, but I’m lucky enough that I have such a supportive husband, cat children, and an amazing group of friends.
Currently I’m helping out at Gypsy Moon in my spare time, selling some of my creations there, and using it as a base of operation. The ladies there have been very supportive and I am very excited to offer my talents to help them reach their goals as well. I’ve started doing freelance graphic design once again and have actually been fairly busy with a few logo designs for some local businesses which I will post soon. So despite the little hiccups everything has played out pretty well and I feel like I am on to a good start into whatever this is.
Life really has a way of surprising you and making you step up and realize your true potential. I can’t lie, I am still pretty scared. I never thought I would be where I am at currently. There are a lot of questions and uncertainties. But like everything else in my life, I’m approaching it from the “Failure is not an option” stand point. And also, deep down inside, I am very happy and excited for what the future holds and have this overwhelming sense of peace… For the first time in my life I feel like I am actually following what I need to be doing and that I am exactly where I need to be. So here is to having faith in yourself and taking the leap into the unknown. Cheers.
