Choices

The choices we make shape our lives. Seven years ago my Dad died, followed a year later by my Grammie. These were both very important people in my life, and I suddenly realized that life was far shorter than I ever thought. So I retired from my accounting career and became a fulltime artist. The monetary paycheck isn't nearly as good, but the rewards are unbelievable. I get up every morning, thrilled to be alive and head to the studio to "play" all day. Life doesn't get much better than that!

Thanks for sharing that, Karen. I recently made a decision to 're-retire' to become a full-time artist... won't happen until the end of this year, but I'm really looking forward to it!
