Listen to your intuition, it usually isn't wrong. I know you have felt lost at sea, being a military spouse. It has made having a career difficult. It is a fact, not an excuse. I moved one year 3x from Brunswick-Searsport, ME then to Honolulu, HI, then back to Searsport, Maine. My son started 6th grade in Maine, moved to Hawaii,came back and finished 6 grade with the same class. Crazy! It has been an unique journey, but it time to open the window and allow your dream and desires to breath. Time to make more room for your passion. Passion is key to you succeeding, so is patience and perseverance. You need to find time to practice. Someone or something will always need your attention, but you need to remember this is not always going to be this way. A shift in your schedule can create moments of opportunity, but you will have to make sacrifices, less Tv, less computer time, etc. It will be a juggling act, but you are worth it. People around you feel this shift and it won't be easy, as you lean more towards your goals. Maybe you will only have 20 minutes a day to make, write or do something. You owe it to yourself, to respond to the whispers of your heART. You have had an artistic eye, you didn't allow it time to focus. Your family came first, but there is time for both, if you adjust your view. It won't be easy, but what is?! YOU have heard since a young age, "I would of never thought of that" and you are still hearing it. Listen to your soul, it whispers everyday, the time is now! Wake up and pay attention to what your eye is drawn to. What causes you to linger, what colors, images or words attract your muse.
