Fall has this second New Year quality to me; Try, try, try again mentality. The seasonal pull of change and beauty, gives us a time to pause, reflect. My souls longs for walks, the smell of wood smoke, apples, pumpkin patches and the magic of the harvest. I love all seasons, but this one has an alluring quality, leaves changing moods readying us for the bare branches of winter's embrace.
What is your dream? What is lacking in your life? What did you really want to do, but somehow, life
sidetracked you, you were derailed and need to get back on track. It is true that most people have several careers in life. It isn't like it use to be, one job, retire and settle back.... Our lives are different, we have to morph, conform, change, grow, do more, do less, wear shoes that don't fit, and try on many different hats~
I'm going to turn over a new leaf this Fall and jump into some online classes. I think if you want to be creative, you have to push yourself, try others shoes, try their tips and techniques, learn from them, and move on. I have seen many artist, emulate their favorite artist and through the process, find their style. Trying to craft your dreams, is work... I think of it like a hurricane, change is hard, you will feel the tug and pull of your emotions and inner turmoil. I can't do this, what was I thinking... But you continue, you might feel this is your path and stay the course. The eye of the storm comes over, there is a calmness that enters you, you see things more clearly. This is what I am meant to do and finally when you are convinced the 2nd part of the storm appears. The storm never ends...it is adjusting yourself, your eyes, your emotions and charting your mind's course to continue on...no matter what! Because we all know, if we quit, we could of been this close to reaching our star. ~ Cheers~
