Hey bro you why you write password on forums.. (white hat hacker)
Hey look. There are no two ways about it. I am definitely one of those people who has waited, and waited, and waited… AND WAITED for everything to be perfect before I could be brave enough to become ‘an artist’. I put two (maybe three) careers before my instincts to just paint. I got married and had a family. I renovated houses and filled up my life with skinny lattes and champagne lunches. I collected shoes and magazines.
Then disaster struck. There were lawsuits and ginormous legal bills. There was trauma and injustice and also death. There were so many lies. There was the most unbelievable family drama you could imagine and after ten years of it I pretty much lost everything…..my career, my husband, my money and my confidence. Not to mention my sanity.
Seriously. I was lost.
Sooooooooo. What better time to become an artist? The decision that had plagued me my entire life suddenly became so simple. I was stripped bare. Luckily I knew the right question to ask myself. It wasn’t “What am I going to do?”. It was “What do I WANT to do?”
Paint sweetie. Paint. See what the hell you are capable of.
So that’s me. Starting this journey at 48. Its thrilling and terrifying in equal measure. I hope you’ll be there to share some of the ride with me. XOX
PS. A wee admission. It wasn’t all me. Thanks ever so much to my relentlessly enduring friends who are endlessly supportive. And thanks also to my loved one who truly gave me the courage to leap.
