…… & it felt damn fine!

Happy Tuesday Everyone, 

I almost copped out on my walk this morning. I had to ask myself “Is this what you want out of life?”, “Do you want to stay as you are, age as you are?”. Hell no, was my response. I stood up to myself & it felt damn fine. We have to stand up to and for ourselves. We are our own worst critics, worst enablers, worst spokesperson.

ENOUGH! This is my time.. Heck, this is YOUR TIME!

Are you happy with your lot in life? Is this what you dreamt your life would be? Do you enjoy and/or get a feeling of purpose from what you do everyday?

In some aspects of my life, I do. In others, ….not so much.

I LOVE my family & would not change them for the world.

I LOVE my job. I am an Artist & a teacher of art.

I LOVE that I was born into a country that lets females express themselves.

What do I want?

I want to feel better. I want to look/feel healthier. I want to feel desirable. I want to share my art & creativity with more of the world…..and more than any of those…. I want to help other people smile.

This is it! Our one ride on the merry-go-round. Some of us get to ride longer than others, but in the end….. THIS IS IT!

What do you want to accomplish before your ride is over? What makes you happy?

Keep smiling & creating, Nicci
