I've had a soul searching kind of day.



Well, friends and family, I have had a pretty crappy day today; I was laid off from my advertising job, and now I'm faced with a lot of uncertainty -- where do I go from here? After a bit of soul searching today, (and a long, somewhat painful visit to the Georgia Department of Labor), I've decided that things could be a lot worse, and that I have a lot to be thankful for. I have hobbies and passions that are in the works - painting and selling my cards and art on Etsy, and here, on my beloved little blog. I have those of you out there that reach out to me with words of encouragement every so often about both, which means so much to me, and it gives me the fuel and the desire to keep going and to keep dreaming big. I have an amazing support system; my family, my friends, and my fiance, James. I couldn't ask for a more phenomenal group of people to love in my life. The bottom line is, I am a very lucky girl, and the worst is behind me.


I truly believe the best is yet to come.

  1. There have been so many layoffs out here in CA as well. I believe you're 100% right in feeling the best is yet to come! :)
    We get from the universe what we put out into the universe. And, even though I don't know you, from what I've read of your blog and seen of your art I think you are putting a lot of heart, love, and beauty. I know that you'll be getting all of those things right back....in spades!
