As I was writing in my journal today I had lots of positive thoughts and ideas. (I got sleep last night!) Actually, I was busting with nice things to write about. I mostly thought about how grateful I am to wake up everyday for the last 4 years and be excited about my art and the possibilities that await me as an artist. I am grateful for my drive to be creative each day and for all of the ideas, sketches and inspiration that I recieve everyday.
I am grateful that giving up isnt an option. I am grateful for the friends I have that are the "wind beneath my wings" when I need it most. I am grateful for my mother who is my biggest cheerleader at 81 and is there when I set my booth up every month and is the first person I show my new sketches and ideas to. (I'm grateful that I made her laugh yesterday, she has been under the weather for a couple of weeks)
I am grateful for this outlet and that I am able to hopefully inspire and to make someone happy with my art.
Most of all I am grateful to be an artist, and to be my own special and unique self!
I'd love to hear what you guys are grateful for, please feel free to share!
