I suppose a considerable amount could be said about having the right kind of perspective in life. I also wholeheartedly believe that it is a choice, in many ways, on how one looks at the events that unfold in their life. I have had to make tough decisions, as we all have, about the direction I see for myself. This means choosing to “walk away” for what does not ultimately serve my higher being. The beauty of it all, I wouldn’t change any of it. As with anything in life, I am learning. I am learning to “let go”, I am learning to “stand up for myself”, I am learning “what I want-matters”, and I am learning “I have a lot to say”. Okay, so maybe that last one is ridiculous since I have ALWAYS had a lot to say. However, my voice matters, if only to me!
I no longer fret about tomorrow, not really. I no longer allow myself to be “bogged down” by all the visions of what has not even come to fruition. This does NOT mean that I do not dream. I do! I dream about a better life for my girls’. Everything that I am working towards is for them and selfishly; or better yet, with self-interest, is for me. As I work towards achieving my goals to be an artist that can make a living at what I love to do, I see the chapters that end before my eyes as not an ending; but a beautiful unknown beginning. And that is exciting! It is afterall, “A New Dawn”.
