Until about 6 months ago, I’ve pretty much lived my whole life having very little self confidence. I was too afraid to take big steps or changes in my life, in case it was a bad move, or I failed.
As most people would know, when you don’t take action on anything - when you allow your environment to determine where you go in life - any self respect in oneself diminishes quickly. Not only did I feel like a weak person, but my lack of action brought on anxiety - of fear of the future - because, to me, my future looked bleak, because I felt like I wasn’t in control of it. -
Something the older generations often tell younger people, is to not waste your life doing what you think you SHOULD do, if it makes you unhappy. People should spend their lives doing what they love, because life is fleeting, and regret is heart-wrenching.
6 months ago I decided to take my life into my own hands, and determine my own destiny.
I used to be afraid to tell people I was an artist and to show them my art, because I knew the sparse work I had to show wasn’t a true reflection of what I was capable of.
I used to feel guilty telling people what “I do for a living,” aka my job, because my job made me unhappy.
I felt like I was cheating myself, like I was laying waste my true potential.
But now, because I put faith in myself and “allowed” myself to follow my dreams, I am much more proud of the person I am than I once was.
My self confidence in not only myself, but my work, has skyrocketed since then.
I believe everyone should do all they can to chase their dreams, because if you do, you will live a life without regret.
And a life lived without regret is the best life you can hope for.
Holiday memories: When I was growing up in the mountains of Colorado, you could buy a permit to walk into the woods and cut your own Christmas tree. It was usually a very Griswold affair. It was exhausting trudging through knee high snow to find, cut and carry the “perfect” tree (which was always too big for the house), but I still have fond memories of the experience nonetheless.
Most recent piece 😊 digital recreation of a painting I did in high school which was inspired by Peter Max. Still trying to figure out this digital art but I’m enjoying it nonetheless
I️ can’t believe that the stores are decorated for Christmas already! I️ haven’t even had my turkey yet 😜 I️ absolutely love the holiday season but I️ am reminded that I should be thankful each and every day for all that I️ have! I️ have been blessed with so much and I️ owe all to my Lord and Saviour!!!
Well apparently my ipad hates recording its own screen. I had about an hour’s worth of notes recorded that never actually saved?? So here’s parts of my immunology notetaking 😊I think I might stick with my usual timelapse videos 😂👩🏻💻📝📱🔴
