I had a very interesting conversation with a fellow friend/artist yesterday.
They have been suffering from some dark depression, etc., and the thing(s) that have helped them most are friends encouraging to get art-ing again and the act of art-ing.
How awesome is that. Not the down-in-the-dumps, but how making and creating is saving them!!
I know about that- I've worked almost every job, have had tons of "kick-in-the-faces",
and just not liked where my life was heading.
When I started making things again, it wasn't to make money,
it was to because making was making me happy again!
Wouldn't you know- I've finally realized my dream job- my dream life!
I'm not sure where my end goal is, whether it be a brick and mortar storefront or travelling for shows or online, but as long as I'm making, and get to see my art making other happy and laugh- all is well here <3

Moral of the story:
sit down, relax, think, and ponder with a glass of wine
how you are going to make your life awesome and happy!
