Spring has sprung here on Cape Cod. A couple days of warmth rotating with chilly and rainy days. Of course everyone would love it if it was all sunshine and warmth, but that isn't how it works. The reset button for Spring comes with rain and sometimes a step back into what seems like winter. The same is true for the Artists reset button. We, like everyone else, going through changes or taking on new challenges find we have some very sunny days and also some rainy ones filled with set backs.
I am sure you can relate. But Spring is wonderful. T o me it's even more of a chance to change than New Years. It's a chance to try new things and find hope in the reset. My wish for this Spring is to find new ways to look at the world, to go back to a place of wonder and awe. I am planning more away time to rekindle that spirit in me. I am also refocusing my business and my way of making my art to put myself into uncomfortable places so I can grow into a more fearless place of inspiration. Easier said than done, but that is my goal.
My wish for you is to also find a place of reset to become the person you want to be. Never stop challenging what you think you know. Never stop wanting to see what you've never seen. Never stop having new adventures. Life is a journey and you can't have one if you never step outside into the rain and the sun.
I am an artist/small business owner and I wanted to share with you the struggles we face in this business and an inside view of what we are really thinking sometimes in our crazy, creative minds. As well as the usual stuff, ie newsletters and updates.
