I have been really lucky in finding a fabulous group of artists and mentors. Recently I found another mentor to help me with the business end of being an artist. I am so grateful-it’s just what I needed right now. And it literally just appeared one day.

Sometimes I have a hard time with seeing the forest for the trees. I get so caught up in what I want, that I forget all that I already have. It happens in all areas of my life. I think I am getting better about seeing it, though.

It really comes down to mindset. How I choose to perceive the world around me. It is a choice. It’s easy to forget that. My perceptions really do influence how I feel about what’s happening in the world around me. Which effects everything in my life.
