I'm listening to India Arie and it has put me in one of my thoughtful moods.
Her music just speaks to my soul through so many songs. Here are my thoughts for today.
I'm mainly up because I took a 5 hr nap earlier. Packing clothes and going up and down stairs multiple times tends to tire me out. lol. The bad thing... or maybe good thing about staying up this late is that you have time to yourself to do all kinds of things. I happened to be reading emails from Etsy. As mentioned before Etsy is a website to find all kinds of things that are still handmade.
I never thought I would have the courage to do this, but very soon I will be opening my own shop called Eclectic Oasis. I will actually be baring my soul and selling some of my artwork. I can't even begin to explain the bubbling joy and the gripping fear that is swirling inside of me. Last year in September and October to be exact, my life began making a major shift.
Nothing was going as planned...
I had it seemed my whole life figured out or so I thought. Then by the forces that be I was pointed in a whole new direction and it scared the hell outta me. I know there is a reason for everything that happens in life so I decided 2010 was to be my year to start reaching my full potential. Time to take control of my life and not let other people dictate who I was and wanted to be. It's very scary to think about actually being successful in your endeavors and then thinking about having to keep up a certain level of success at all times.
I was reading an article though, about doing what you love for a living and it has a lot of good information and inspiration. I think it's worth checking it out if you're tired of your 9-5, want a career change, or are currently unemployed and find yourself with free time.
Although somewhat fearful, I feel like I'm ready for this..
Sometimes you just have to take that leap..
And I'm ready to get the ball rolling..
