We Must Begin Somewhere…

I AM NOT AN ARTIST YET
I recently moved to a new home and befriended a woman on my street who I adore. We are connected through a women’s group we belong to, The Spirituelle Divas, through our interests and now mutual friends. Our children have also met and they get along.

This woman has brought a lot to my life and I know that I have touched hers as well. We both agree that this is meant to be in so many ways.

One evening in late December we were at a coffee shop and through a discussion and me mentioning that my friend is a great artist – it was suggested that she hang some of her pictures in the coffee shop. The discussion continued over the next few weeks and before my friend new it she was having her first showing.

She was excited and nervous and wondering if she was ready for this. I told her to breathe and sure enough the night before her showing in February she trekked down to the coffee shop with her art in hand. She even had a great idea to take prints of her work and sell both the original and prints. It is an exciting time for her.

She has joined a group of artists and she was telling me a story that she was out for dinner with them this week and as they went around the table to introduce themselves she started with, “I am not an artist yet”. This wise older man stepped in and said, “You are an artist, you are a starting artist”. This profound message gave a new perspective to my friend.

This message is not just for my friend, rather for EACH ONE OF US who is beginning or just starting something new – a passion or interest that may be just for fun or something that you want to turn into a business.

The point is we need to begin somewhere, likely at the very beginning. Even the most successful, call them experts, started at the very beginning, not knowing much, not having experience. It was a journey of highs and lows that brought them to where they are now.

When you are clear of who you are and what you want in your life, you begin to trust, believe and know that it will all work out! When you vibrate at this level you begin to bring more of the experiences that you want into your life and eventually time passes– one day you look back and say WOW I AM A THRIVING, SUCCESSFUL ARTIST(or whatever your passion/purpose) WHO IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE!

Exciting. As I always say — it’s baby steps, one step at a time. Surround yourself with unconditionally loving people and see your journey unfold.

All my love,

Sandra
