I like to think that there's a moment once the clock strikes midnight and we let go of all our struggles and heartaches of the past year, and start looking forward. What are your unshakeable dreams? What kind of person do you want to be? What do you love?
I have never for one second, ever regretted deciding to chase a creative life. Working as a emerging artist is a struggle - I spend a lot of late nights drawing and churning out ideas when most people are out with their friends. I pore over expense spreadsheets for my print sales on my lunch breaks and sometimes I'm squeezing minutes out of my day to meet my own deadlines.
But it's amazing. And fun and challenging and surprising. It feeds the soul. I hope to any other creatives out there who are just starting out - I am struggling out here with you and sending encouraging thoughts! Happy 2018.
