Following your passion

Me at my first art show displaying and selling my paintings (December 2007)
Follow your passion! Life is so much better when you’re following your passion!
A few years ago.. in 2007-2008 I had that fire... that passion in my belly to paint.... and well then 'life' happened. Engaged... buy house, plan a wedding, and get married. And slowing but surely the water started to boil again... and I could feel that passion sneaking up on me again!
My spirit was saying...
Take heart, chase dreams!
It’s been almost a week since I last blogged, and the time just flew by!
I’ve been running, creating, running, painting, yogi, running, running, running, fun, running. Not running like on the treadmill running. Running errands, visiting with friends, buying birthday presents, making presents, taking pictures, capturing moments, make art! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
I am really doing it! I’m learning how to spread my wings, how to believe in myself and how to make time for my passions. It’s not always easy... but I’m finding if I put the work in... It feels so good.
For me finding the time that extra time... To put the work in has been in the morning. Mornings... Ugh.
A MORNING PERSON!?!?! I know so many reach for the coffee first thing out the bed (or even soda... I’ve been there!). Me personally I like the fancy coffee with flavoring shots, sugar and milk. But lately I haven’t even been reaching for the coffee in the morning... Why? Because I’m making time for my passions! And I’m excited to wake up! I don’t dread the mornings, and yes I used to dread the mornings!
Yep, a morning girl! I can’t believe it but I’m getting up early. Really early! Early enough to make a smoothie, early enough to create and take a few minutes for myself!
Meditating, creating, blogging!
This is making all the difference in the world for me!
I always wished I was morning person... And now I’m kind of am becoming one!
It’s becoming habit, a habit that feels good... So why wouldn’t I keep doing it?
My friend Goddess Leonie..  Has the coolest FREE book on how to be a MORNING Goddess!
So inspiring!
See what can happen in your life if you take the time to follow your passion!


  1. I am so glad you are finding time to create! I find morning is the best time for me as well. It's calmer in this busy house during that time. Best of luck on continuing to follow your passion!

  2. I love reading your blog and it's so fun to see what you have created! I love it and so happy that you are finding inspiration!
