I’ve always been creative and I’ve always had an eye for beauty in the ordinary. I’ve spent a lot of time in the past year following, reading and looking at creative small businesses, artists, photographers and bloggers. I’ve had lofty dreams of doing what they all do – of being brave enough to put myself out there and test the waters.
I’ve started many blogs and then deleted them through fear of someone I know finding them. Of being judged or worst still being ridiculed about my interests, writing style or even just the fact that I’m writing a blog.
I can’t live my life in fear anymore. I have to live the life I want to and the life that makes me happy.
I want to blog, I want to learn photography and get better at it and I want to run my own creative business making things and selling them. I want to be self-employed and I want to work hard at it. I know deep down I can literally do anything I set my mind to creatively. I now know this is where my biggest strengths lie.
I’ve started this blog so I have a creative outlet and to document how I’m going to achieve the changes I want to see in my life. I also just really enjoy writing. I’m realistic and I know it could be quite a few years before I can support myself financially doing something I love. But the time will pass anyway so why not spend it working towards something that could be life changing?
If you have similar interests or are going through making similar changes yourself please follow along and connect. I’d love to hear from you.
