Fresh Start and Exciting News

My new creative corner
I recently had to say goodbye to my first home. After 10 years in the house where I brought up my children, I had to move on. Part of me was really sad and hesitant to let go and part of me was relieved. Many beautiful memories were made, many tears shed, many firsts....but it was time to let go of the old and embrace the new. It started with a new love, then a new baby, a new job, now a new apartment and a whole new life. FRESH START. Don't you love the sound of that?

I have been thinking about all this change and new-ness and I decided I was going to STOP being AFRAID of being successful and START being BOLD. So for my first bold move I signed up for Lilla Roger's Make Art That Sells (MATS) Part A & B starting in October of this year. ((SUPER excited!!)) Today I made my second bold move - I registered for Lilla Roger's Global Talent Search 2014!! Yes. I was tired of sitting on the sidelines watching all the exciting, fun things happen to other people so I decided I would grab the new, exciting, challenging, and fun by the horns and go with it. How else am I going to grow? My life has been topsy-turvy and oh-so-stressful the last year and a half. I have not been able to concentrate on work AT ALL. I think MATS and GTS are JUST what I need to get back into my groove and remember why God put me on this earth. And I can't wait to share every step of my journey with you guys!! Are you excited?? I AM!!

Change is scary but OH.SO.GOOD. And necessary. One thing is for certain. I am DONE fighting the current. I am going to go with the flow from now on. No more struggling for me. My heart really wanted to do this so I jumped in and I did it. Now my heart is happy and excited and scared and anxious but that's ALL GOOD because it means I'm going in the right direction! And THAT is EXACTLY where I need to be going. Until next time! =)
