One of my biggest fears in life is failing which is why for so many years I hid behind a computer screen not sharing my personal work. I was afraid people wouldn't like what I was doing or if they did, they would copy me. This past year has brought so much growth not only in this business but also in my heart and soul. Letting go of fears and simply pursuing things that I'm most passionate about has made all the difference. I stopped listening to others who had their two cents about what I should be doing and focused on what felt right for me.
When I opened a promo email about decorating a dorm room from Society6 yesterday I wasn't expecting to see my work featured, but it was, amongst other talented artists. I sat there staring at the screen for a good ten minutes in shock that my most popular handwritten print "Let Go" was out there for the whole world to see. As I clicked through all the pictures, a video and a blog post I couldn't help but smile ear to ear.
It's pretty ironic that earlier in the week I was wrestling with so many emotions of uncertainty about the future. As I was in tears driving to my full time job I said to myself, let it go. Whatever is meant to be will be. God you are in control, use me and lead me to where I'm supposed to be. Then this happened. This is the first time my work has been featured on a large scale like this and it makes me hopeful for a better future in regards to business growth and the ability to reach out to others spreading love and positivity.
If you're feeling down, frustrated and defeated keep the faith. Sometimes when you aren't sure or just want to quit, that's when things start changing and getting good. Hard work will always reveal itself in the right timing so keep pursuing the things you're most passionate about.
