‘It is time for you to fly Amy’…is what I heard during the exit interview.
Last Monday I posted on FaceBook that I had a ‘life hiccup‘….I then received all kinds of comments of concern and a lot of kindness…and prayers.
So What’s the hiccup Amy?
The hiccup was saying Goodbye to my 9-5 job ……it was like the baby bird was being pushed from the comfortable nest. It was time to fly.
You see….this wasn’t going to be easy. I have ‘worked’ since I was 15……full time since I was 18, I was a bank teller, an entry typist for Dun & Bradstreet, a Kelly girl, a manager at Bath and Body Works, I’ve sold chain saws and hardware, and flipped burgers…. among other things.
For the last 13 years I was a blue-collar girl living in a white-collar ‘cubical’ world. But my happiest times were stocking shelves and creating window displays at Bath and Body Works and M &S Hardware…this all prepared me for… what I am about to do.
Over the past week there were a lot of tears, some nail-biting, a little whining, some sofa 80’s movie bingeing, much prayer and going thru every ‘what if’ scenario in my head…...‘what if I fail…..oh my dear, but what if you fly’, …….what if.
and I am ready to fly…..I am ready to be a full time Artist. Pinch Me.
Who says dreams don’t come true. It is within His Plan for me. I have been surrounded by Art in one way or another over the past 30 years. He has prepared the path and I have taken the much needed journey.
And He now has given me wings…..and it is time to Fly.
Over the past week ~ I have been taking walks, praying and listening to GOD and have received many many many signs….of assurance, that this is right and good and I am ready. I tried not to do all the talking with GOD.…but listen. And the Blessings I have received have assured me the time is right…and now….to Fly.
I’m settling into a new routine, a new way of life. A happy Art-full life.
There will be blog changes, more photographs, more patterns, more clubs, new projects, updates, newsletters, Studio tours and make-overs, new adventures, selling originals, new mediums, added classes, workshops and open houses….and, and, and….
