Lately I have been thinking a lot about what my next creative venture will be - I am yearning for it! I was having a chat with a young woman in my office who is facing the cross road that I once faced in choosing a career path, on one hand, she wants to please her parents and honor them by taking on a job in finance or medicine. On the flip side, is what she actually wants to do, study film, be in a band and explore her creativity. I once had to make this bold choice when I was in college. Do I carry on as a chemistry major heading to a life of needing drugs to get me through a life of boring monotony,(my apologies to those who love this:), or do I choose my own destiny and learn to live with the consequences - not to sound negative, but there is a possibility of failure:). Well, what I have learned in my years, is always fail doing what you love - by doing so, you never lose! My journey is and has been highly blessed and I am grateful and excited about what lies ahead! In the words of one of my favorite artists:
CREATIVITY TAKES COURAGE!
- Henri Matisse
My other favorite saying from him...
“Nothing can be accomplished without love. ”
