Well, my website is almost done so it won't be long before I go "live." Painting is getting to be more routine and it's easier to remember that this is my job; my new career. I do however, still have a room full of materials that I used in my previous life of long-term care and consulting. Maybe if I give it all away it will be easier to let go.
What a blessing to now be able to do what I have always dreamed of doing - spending my days lost in the creative flow of painting! The transition has not been easy and I still struggle with feeling guilty for having so much fun at my work but I'll continue the process of letting go of that and surrendering to the joy that comes from doing what I love.
