Now the obvious question... what does that mean for me? Trust me I have already been flooded with comments like, "So how's the job search going?" "You better not become a boring housewife." "You are moving because of a man?" This is feminist California mind you. (Which is not a bad thing of course.) Well yes, I am moving for a man...my husband, but it is more than that because this job provides us both with new horizons. So again, what does this move mean for me? A chance to pursue the one constant desire I have had my entire life...to make art. I have mentioned my love for art for some time on this blog, but up until this point it has been a hobby, a side-lined subject. And with such neglect, my soul has ached. In my heart of hearts I know that I will never find satisfaction in work unless I am creating, moreover creating with creative freedom. I am not knocking the 9 to 5 as I have been apart of this category since college graduation and it takes true commitment, strength, and strive to thrive in such environment. I am not disregarding the "blue collar" jobs because they may in fact take even more of the previous listed. I may very much find myself within one of the two previous listed in due time, but for now I must try- try to become an artist. If not now, when? I realize that this is a profession that encourages eye-rolling and skepticism, but I am fully prepared to face adversity and judgement. Heck call this the year of my quarter-life crisis if you will, but I finally feel as though I am finally coming into my own! The only thing that scares me more than failing, is never knowing and living with regret.
With that said, I have decided 2015 will be my year! The year I finally launch a e-shop and start an art project that I am very excited to share with you! Ultimately, it will be the year I chase my dreams. I have gained the support of many loved ones, and now I am asking you fellow bloggers and friends for the same thing. You and I, we are one in the same, we are always looking for more than the mundane the obvious so we write, we style, we photograph, we create! Now more than ever, I need you- my sweet and wonderful internet friends far and wide. Perhaps you could spread a little extra love when I become truly vulnerable by sharing my art with you and the rest world. And obviously, wish me luck!
I love you all, xoxox times infinity!
