I have always loved to paint and draw and write, but for the past eleven years, I had got caught up in trying to
make a living and that left no time to pursue the desires of my heart. Through a series of circumstances, it became
clear that I needed to pursue these desires and the doors have been opening for me.
The quote at the bottom of each page is one my husband sent to me and it really spoke to me. I consider it to be
one of the things I held on to during all the changes in these past few years. The one thing I refuse to do is leave
the planet dissatisfied with myself because I did not do what was on my heart to do. So, I'm doing it and I am much
happier with myself and with my life.
The gifts and callings of God are given to us freely, he won't take them back, but it is up to us to use what we have
been given. That is why it is so important to know your purpose, your giftings, your calling. Knowing those things
and using them or doing them, make the difference between making a living and truly living. If I could wish anything
for you, it would be for you to use your talent (whatever that is; and if you don't know, may you find out) so you don't leave
the planet dissatisfied with yourself and wondering how much you could have done if you had just tried.
