So. This week I finally joined the rest of the civilized world and got myself a Facebook page. So far, it's pretty quiet over there.
oh. and I also opened a little shop on Etsy.
I whisper that. I'm afraid to say it out loud. Can it be true? It's a dream I've carried for so long, I hardly know how to feel now that it has happened. It certainly doesn't feel the way I thought it would. My fledgling flight into the world of artistic entrepreneurship is fraught with more anxiety than exhilaration. I am afraid of failure, but I am also afraid of success. ?????? do you do that too?
Now I know how all the little baby birds feel when it is finally time to leave the nest. I understand all the questions that must flood their wee brains. Where will I land? What if I can't fly????!!! What the crap made me think I could???? What if I fall? What then? Everything at that moment is an absolute unknown. And still they jump and spread their wings and.....here's the key.....they trust.
I never realized how brave they are.
