Hello, new blog friends and welcome! It is so hard for me to know where to begin; I have so much I want to share! My journey right now is really about discovering my authenticity and sharing it. Each one of us is different and I think that is so cool. We all have our own unique strengths and weakness and struggles and triumphs. Figuring out how to truly be ourselves is something that I think takes a lifetime. I am giving myself permission to be myself and I want to share that journey with you in the hopes of inspiring you to be yourself as well.
My life path has been a winding road. I got a degree in Interior Design right out of high school, then worked for a year as a kitchen and bath designer. When I was laid off and couldn’t find a job for several months, I ended up taking a temp job as a chiropractor’s assistant. That led me to going back to school to be a radiology tech. While I was in my second year, I got very, very sick and a month before I would have graduated, I was diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma. I am now in remission. Going through treatment and surviving has definitely changed my life.
My philosophy now is life is too short to not follow my dreams. I am now following those dreams of being a social media manager and artist. My main passion in life is (and pretty much always has been) creating. I love painting, especially with acrylics, and plan on opening an online store soon with my own original artwork. In addition, I love helping people and sharing knowledge that I have accumulated over the years. All of these things are what have led me to create this blog. It is a blog for creatives (and we’re all creative, in one way or another).
Thank you so much for being patient as I am getting started on my blog journey. I truly want to make this blog a welcoming, supportive place for you and me to hang out. I would appreciate any comments and feedback that you would care to share.
