I turned the big 3-0 on Tuesday. And while I am not one to dwell on numbers, statistics or age, it has not passed without the ineitable 'am I where I want to be in my life?' reflection. Across the board, I'm pretty psyched to be where I am at. I have great family and amazing friends. I am not wanting for anything in life....I have more than enough. I have found a teeny, tiny niche in the crazy art world that has allowed me to spread my wings and be on my own. Translation: I am broke but happy. Opening my new store has been waaaaaay more work than I thought it was going to be, but I am am still ironing out the wrinkles and every once in a while can come up for air and take a breath of self satisfaction. But every once in a while I wonder if I made the right decision when I came to that huge fork in the road...trading in my cushy job with benefits and my domesticated relationshipy lifestyle for a completely independent, unpredictable and creative life. And this week more than ever I can say that I did. They say everything happens for a reason...a motto I believe strongly in. Everything I have done prior to today has helped me get exactly where I am, emotionally and physically, spiritually. And it is all good. So am I where I want to be? Yes. Exactly. Bring on an amazing year! :o)
