Being 40-something has not proven to be easy. After continuing along for 20+ years, I still do not have an instructional guide. Just when I think I have it figured out, the Universe says, “nope, let’s try this instead.”
Originally, this blog was my way to keep swimming. I believed that by sharing my ups and downs, I could help others who were struggling with the same thing. Even if I only helped one or two people, that is better than helping no one. My struggles had to be for more than just me and my family.
Two years later, my struggles were just for me and my family. Quite honestly, it’s hard to write while struggling because it sounds like therapy, and I found myself in extremely negative space. No one wants to share that with folks. A few years later I tried again by starting a #dovolution. It’s a shame that I don’t have follow through because that one would have been fun.
It’s now been eight years since I first started this. I STILL have no clue. Most would say, “shouldn’t you just stop?” A sensible person would, but I’m not finished. I don’t have much to offer other than suggestions. Most of the good nuggets will have to be excavated from the other fluff, and I promise to keep the fluff to a limit.
This site is going to become a way to share what others are doing in the world of art. Art is what has gotten me through all of these rough times in the last eight years. Now if I can just get my Instagram connection working correctly.
