This is a picture of me in my blue room at 43. June 21 2012. At 43 I find myself to be in a very happy place. I have decided to stop climbing the corporate ladder and putting my passions into something that is more meaningful to me. Not that I have any regrets or feel like I wasted time, but the time just seemed to right. I think we all need that approval, acceptance and appreciation and for many years I got that at work. Now in the creative world I find I get it here too. I can't tell you the feeling I get when I go over to the Graphic 45 blog and see all of the comments made when my projects are posted. But I think the best part of creating is the calmness that is brings to my inner self. It's been so wonderful to have something that fills me outwardly and inwardly. In addition I have so many wonderful people in my life, so at 43 life is good!
