At least - that's what my black dog keeps telling me.
And this ain't the black dog that's soooo friendly, as in the restaurant, or in the big calm black lab that saves somebody from drowning in the big lake. No, my black dog is the voice inside my head that tells me I'm somehow never good /talented / pretty / smart / clever enough for ...someone. Usually me. Because really? No one else is judging me as harshly as I'm judging myself.
But more about the black dog later. (I think most women have an internal black dog so hopefully some readers can relate).
So, this is all part of the plan to launch a blog and an Etsy site and a website and an eBay store and links to cool sites and favorite blogs. For my second life as a successful, well-known multi-media artist.
Of course, to have a second life you have to have a first life, which I do - I work for Huge McNormous Corporation, as a Sr. Director of Corporate Stuff. And most of the time I feel that I'm making a difference. But looking into the future, I really want to do something that I love - to have that wonder of waking up in the morning anxious to get to work because it's fun, not because I have so many meetings to wade through, or issues to handle.
This will be my story and my journey as I try to create a business to enjoy in the future.
