Taking Chances

I have been feeling this push lately to take more chances. I want to make more alive choices! I’m finding smaller ways to take “big” leaps. I have been working on a vision for awhile of what I want my art studio to be and what type of job I want to live. I’ve known what I need to do, but I keep dragging my feet. Last week, without thinking about it, I started dialing numbers. As a result, I  booked some partnerships and have been asked to submit some proposals!

I have also been playing with the idea of creating some sort of group that is full of open people looking to inspire each other. I started focusing on what type of people I want in my life, and suddenly my art classes have been filled with these type of people who are becoming friends. Today I was out working and I met the most amazing woman. When I walked in the door I instantly felt her energy. It was BIG. She exclaimed, “Oh my god! How many times have you heard how gorgeous your hair is?” We laughed and joked for a moment. She is much older than me but probably has more energy than me. I walked away wishing I had some chance to know this woman a little better.

Five minutes later, I decided I would take the chance. I went back to her office and gave her my phone # and e-mail address. She instantly replied with, “I am so happy you came back! I need more people like you in my life!” I had a fear that she would think I were some kind of freak. I took a chance…I booked some work…I made a new friend. I’m going to start looking for more ALIVE decisions to make.

I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
