Today I am stronger than I was yesterday.
The puny Michigan girl who moved to Manhattan 5 years ago is now more tenacious and sturdy.
This time last year I juggled a budding creative career alongside a 9-5 job that often made me cringe. Eleven months later I'm much happier, filling my time with the things that I enjoy -- making art, teaching, and being around fashion on a regular.
Filling my time with more of what I love has been the greatest gift ever. I have a better sense of self. My purpose is clear.
I will say that sometimes its simply frustrating. I get impatient as I sit and sort through my list of dreams and aspirations wondering how they'll all come to fruition. I feel glad, I feel sad, I feel like I accomplish alot, I always want to do more but sometimes I just can't.
I've discovered that the dots do not always connect instantly, but working towards a dream takes endurance and faith. Each seemingly little connection moves me closer and refines my weaknesses.
Thanks for making me stronger on this uncharted creative trek via The Creative Cookie. What a trip!?! Luckily this is just the beginning. xo
