Happy Monday! I totally did not want this weekend to end. We escaped into the woods for the weekend and had such a great time enjoying the sunshine. It was so great to unplug for a few days and really unwind.
Getting out of town always let's me think about my focus with my art and reground myself with what's important. I know deciding to be an artist full time was one of the hardest decisions of my life because I would be giving up a steady pay check, the 401k, and I knew it would be hard. I realized that don't I deserve happiness? I know everyone has their own set of circumstances but guess what? you deserve happiness.
I have been thinking a lot about when you are a kid and you get asked the question - What do you want to be when you grow up? I always said that I wanted to be an artist and looking back I thought it was more of a wish. I mean my parents have regular jobs and we lived in a regular house and I know I was supposed to be and want to be regular but over the last few years I realized that I needed to figure out what my regular is. When I say regular I just mean the middle of what happiness is as an individual- not anything boring but everything extra-ordinary.
