Listener shout out of the week!
Listened to Breaking Free of the Golden Handcuffs. Very powerful! I too remained in a position far longer than I should have: it was not a high powered position but it was well paying. However, omg, it was soul sucking and excruciatingly boring and monotonous. It allowed me a lot of things I would not have had if I worked in an office, gave me the opportunity to travel, some nice jewelry 😉 It didn’t give satisfaction, though. Eventually I left, pursuing university education. That was considerably better but proved not to be exactly what was in my heart: there was always the desire for art in some form or other. Listening to the experts I sought more sensible solutions. Did this provide either security or financial rewards, no, not at all. Had I listened to what I always knew, go with my gut/intuition, I could have saved years of frustration. Now I am making some real progress in developing my art. It really is not too late :).

People. Love. Pets.
💜 It’s a special kind of love that only a true animal lover can understand.
.....Your pets are like your children.
.....You think about them throughout the day.
.....You wonder what they’re doing when you’re not around.
.....You find yourself getting funny looks from non-pet-people when you talk about your pet.
🐕 So why not take some time to learn to paint pets?
🎁 Imagine this December you’ll be giving pet paintings as gifts to your friends and family too.
I can’t wait to see what you paint!
