Growing up was not easy, as is the case with many.
The only things that got me through the storms were silence, understanding, and art
I learned from a very young age to look at everything through the lens of creativity. That was really the only way for me to have some sort of greater appreciation for my life and life all around me.
Recently I left my job, tried another one and lasted 3 months …something isn’t right with me. My heart and mind are continuously unhappy with the constraints of a 9-5 job. I would much rather work hard and lose sleep over something I have control over and I feel proud of.
Here’s what it comes down to…I keep thinking “I would much rather” so that’s what I’ll do.
I’m going to fill in as many of the “I would much rather” as I can.
Starting with this blog.
Because really, I would much rather write to all of you then sit at a desk arranging someone else’s calendar and life.
I would much rather share my life with those who choose to know about it than those who are forced to listen to it out of sheer obligation, pity, and politeness.
If you’re joining me I hope that you can relate to the things that I write. I hope that it helps you weather your own storms and you come to realizations that will make you take the leap into changing your own life.
After all…wouldn’t you much rather write your own destiny than rely on the universe and others around you?
