Dare to follow your dreams

Are you CONSTANTLY thinking about following your dreams but haven’t done it yet?

Today is the day to bet on yourself and go after what you truly want out of your life

Through my illustrations, I am able to express my childhood dream and goal of making a living as an artist every day. Yet, even though I am doing what I’ve always wanted to do, I often find myself feeling a mixture of crippling self-doubt at the same time as intense bravado. Over the years, I’ve realized that I am not the only who has experienced this. Maybe, like so many, you are also preparing to launch a business but don’t find yourself ready to take the entrepreneurial leap yet. Or maybe you haven’t felt the confidence to follow your bliss in years or perhaps you did in the past and things didn’t go as planned. Past failure, self-doubt, fear, uncertainty – when it comes to our dreams the struggle is definitely real as these feelings can cripple them out of existence. As an artist and creative entrepreneur, I have battled these emotions multiple times in my life (and continue to do so). How I’ve learned to handle it is to create through negative feelings until I shatter them and to be focused on my goals and my ultimate body of work.

I have decided to write from my personal experience, and that of other cool dream and paper chasers, about these unwanted emotions; I will, however, not only dwell on the negative because, for real, ain’t nobody got time for that. My goal is to encourage you, wonderful reader, to practice self-love, to help you become more self-aware so that you can crush your goals, and to inspire you to follow your dream(s) everyday. I’m not perfect nor am I an expert at this – I’m going through the process of allowing myself to live my personal truth every day. BUT I am dedicated to becoming the best I can be and to getting where I want to be professionally and personally. I hope that you engage with me and share your own stories, that you spread the posts to fellow aspiring #girlbosses, and that this site helps you on your own personal path.

Happy 2017!
