I’ve got a birthday next month and I will be turning 45. I’m not old, but I am also no longer young. I am in the middle….middle aged as they say. I knew my body would start changing in my 40’s but what I never expected was for my attitudes to change dramatically. My mental state is undergoing the most transformation. Things that used to drive me crazy, no longer do. I am calm and at peace in so many situations now that used to get me totally worked up. I am patient with my daughter. I appreciate my husband a whole lot more. I am just more clear on what’s important in life. I woke up this morning realizing that for 45 years ALL of my needs have always been met. Sometimes that meant peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and a game of Go Fish for a date. Sometimes it meant The Ritz. And there were times when I had to wait long periods of time to get some things I needed. I’ve had to work hard for sure and at times have enjoyed luxuries that as a kid I could only dream of. And also times where I had to sell everything I could to get groceries. My life has always given me everything to sustain me….in the good times and the bad. Right now one of the biggest changes I am feeling is with my art. I no longer see it as just a means to an end. Income. Don’t get me wrong, I like making enough to support myself and help my family, but I am feeling the joy in creating more and the satisfaction of making people happy. I am here to bring joy to other’s hearts. As history has proven, my needs will always be met, so I do not have to worry all of the time about making a “sale”. Here is to change!
