My Journey as a Creative Designer

My Journey as a Creative Designer

  1. As I sit here and begin writing this morning, I realize just how much things have changed since I began blogging several years ago. What began as early morning conversations between you all and myself regarding what the plans were for my day and what the previous day had brought to me has now evolved into something a bit different. In those early days of writing, I was striving to be successful and prove that success not only to others but mainly to myself. I had started writing at a time when my business was just beginning to build up steam and I was dedicated to making my mark in the creative world.
  2. In keeping with my promise to myself and you all to try to do better with blogging regularly, I decided to post some pictures of a project that I am working on for the Toletown painting community for September. 

    For those of you who are unfamiliar with 
    Toletown (www.toletown.com) it is an online painting group that is a fun place to learn about and share our love of painting.
  3. Try as I may, it just hasn't been possible for me to write and blog the way I used to. There just aren't enough hours in the day.  

    It is funny, but we work so hard to achieve a level of 'success' and sometimes we don't realize that along with those successes come added responsibility and time. It isn't as if I didn't know this. I just perhaps didn't foresee that the path to succeeding required as much additional time as it does.
  4. Yesterday I did something I rarely do - I took the day 'off'. 

    There were several reasons that I did this. Lately, things have been busier than ever and I was beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed. After many years of having my own business, I realize that working seven days a week - even when we are busy - isn't always the best answer to getting caught up. Sometimes it is best to take a step back and rest and do something completely unrelated to 'work'.
  5. A long time ago, I read that in order to achieve your goals, you need to first set them. 

    As simple as it sounds, how many times is the list of things we wish to accomplish undefined and 'blurry'?  How many times are we flying by the seat of our collective pants and not really sure exactly what we intend to accomplish?  

    When this happens to me, I must admit that not only do I not achieve as much as I would like, but I feel a higher level of stress as well.
