In the beginning…
I had been trying out these audio files that my friend, Alana, introduced me to, called Philosophers Notes. Lots of the notes were about following your passion or purpose in life. But what was my purpose? I just didn’t know. I mean, surely I had one, right?
Then one day, a question in one of the notes started me on the path: If you didn’t have to worry about money what work would you do?
Well, that’s easy. I’d always wanted to make and sell things. What kind of things? Well, you know, things…arty, crafty things. My creations.
So, there you have it. That’s what I should do, I thought. No time like the present. If I don’t do it now then I’ll never do it. I’ll just keep putting it off.
But I was scared.
Then I was struck by another comment in a Philosopher’s Note: Do the thing you fear and the death of fear is certain.
So, I made my decision to pursue the thing that I most wanted to do, which also happened to be the thing I was most petrified of.
I know there are some of you out there that want to do something that really excites you, but that fear holds you back. I want to share my journey with you, the ups and downs. The triumphs and the mishaps.
I hope that my words will:
Teach you something new
Encourage you to look at something differently
Help you see the beauty in the world
Make you smile and laugh
Inspire you to pursue your own dreams!
Of course, if you want to buy some of my creations, that’d be fantastic too!
