Yesterday was the first snow of the season. During this busy time it was nice to take some time just to watch it fall from the window of my apartment and reflect over the past year.
After being laid off for a year and two months, I start a new job tomorrow and at the end of March I am moving into a house with a room for a studio. I am excited to start this new chapter in my life. I am hoping that I will be able to balance my art, my new job, and setting up a new living space. This new job will give me practical experience with running an organization and who knows what will happen in the future. I have been thinking so much over the past year about my life, my career, and what is truly important to me. This new job is certainly a step in the right direction. I feel like I am starting to come into my own and really know what I want from life. I keep thinking it would have been nice to have been this confident when I was younger, would have saved lots of heartache and disappointment, but then again, what I learned when I was younger is why I am who I am today.
So during this busy Holiday Season, take some time to reflect, think about what is important to you, and know that each new day is a new chance to do what you want to do and to be the person you want to be!
