I have a confession to make.
I’ve never written a blog before. Nor do I follow anyone else’s blog. It’s always been something I wanted to learn about so I figured, what better way than to jump in head first and do it!
I’ve always been a creative person, but never felt it was really beneficial to my career goals. Even being in an art field, and the photography industry, so much more of my focus has always been directed towards doing the things that make money- rather than things I enjoy. I’ve always steered more towards the business end of things, or sales rather than the fun artsy stuff. I’m finally at a point in my life where I’ve realized that no matter how much money I make (not that I make all that much), it’s not enough to cover the feeling in my heart that I should be using more of my creative talents. I heard someone say one time,
“Our sole purpose on this earth is to serve others with our God-given talents”.
I don’t know the guy’s name but he was a wise old man and seemed to know a bit more about life than I do. I’ll take his advice. 😉
Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do, and every day I am able to see how being where I am is exactly where I need to be to learn exactly what I am learning. Life is a journey….(insert other cliché slogans about life HERE). I’m hoping that this blog will inspire me to unleash my creativity in a way I’ve never before felt empowered.
Speaking of talents, here’s a video of the EXTREMELY talented singer, Nora Jones. Her voice is like an angel. For real. I listen to this song almost every morning on repeat when I get ready for work. Since this is the first blog post, I figured I would start it off the same way I like to start my mornings. ENJOY!
