For the love of chasing dreams

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

The hubs snapped these shots upon my arrival home from another part-time creative gig.
Being an artist type is not easy. And sometimes I find myself getting disappointed or distracted by certain plans and dreams that don't exactly turn out the way I'd hoped they would. But then magically, something else always comes along.  And I'm reminded that if I keep doing what I love, if I keep being creative, work will come. 
And what kind of a life would it be without the love of those spirit-rising, heart-thumping, awe-inspiring dreams? 
Not a life that I'd like to be a part of.  Not a life at all. 

So here's to the chase, lovely girls...

Keep going!

  4. This post is my absolute favorite of yours! Staying strong and moving forward can be hard, especially when times are stale. But you are so right that just when you think you can't keep going, a break happens and makes it all worth it.

    Thanks for keeping creativity alive! (Beautiful header by the way. You look stunning)!

  8. Such a pretty outfit with the vest. I put a similar vest in the basket on line at F21 but haven't pulled the trigger yet, you might convince me. I have the same exact earings in gold (guess right?).
    I love your hair this way by the way.

  11. You look beautiful (always) in earthy tones!

    Isn't it SO true. I am SUCH a control freak and since the birth of my baby boy I am freelancing and it is SUCH an out of control feeling...and when a gig ends, I wonder when the next one will come along and then BAM something just falls out of the sky...Actually right now I might have a BIT too much going on. lol.
    Feeling ya.

  16. i'm so glad you wrote this! i've been going through a terrible time the past 5 days (as you might have read) and was very hurt by some people close to me about being who I am. i'm a creative person and my lil budding style blog was something i enjoyed immensely and all my sisters/family are all musicians, artists, creative artsy people and we live for this type of stuff. we need the chase, we need the drive and desire and we need to rise above the petty people and those that wouldn't want us to shine as bright as we possibly can. keep going, i ADORE this blog and you as well!
