I disappeared for the summer and had so many opportunities to be with the people I love, to think and to create. What more can I ask for than time to be in the moment doing the things I love to do - being with my family and making art. Fall is here and it’s a time for transitions.
The ride to this station in my professional life was, at times, very bumpy, very unclear, and often very terrifying. I’m grateful for the time I had to learn things the hard way even though I couldn’t see how important that was at the time that I was learning. So what do you do if you want to change careers? It’s scary for sure but here are some lessons that helped me a lot then and continue to help me even now.
Every year I choose a word that becomes a mantra to take me through the next twelve months. I write that word down and try to manifest it. In 2017 I chose "purpose" as my word and each time I felt like I was struggling or facing some difficulty, or felt uninspired, or frankly deterred and depressed by the state of affairs in our world, I turned to my word, PURPOSE, to bring me light and remind me of what I am meant to do and why I am meant to do it. This time I took the lessons from last year to take me into 2018.
