My freedom...

It has been just over a year since I quit my blood sucking 9 to 5.  Yes I said blood sucking! That job was killing me...Sucking the life right out of me! Killing my spirit, killing my creativity, killing my family, and killing my health.  I found myself always thinking of ways to escape the incarceration...literally.  You see, I'm a creative spirit, a free-spirit, a bohemian spirit :)  My mother is an artist, my father a musician, my grandmother a woman who can do anything with her hands.  I come from creative spirits and I was destined to be JUST THAT!  So here I am now, being ME.  Sipping coffee, making jewelry, running my farmer's market, crying with my best girlfriends over their accomplishments, laughing with my husband mid-week, dancing with my son in the morning.  It took me 36 years to get here, but I'm here dammit and I'm loving it!

My Mantra: Why are you trying so hard to fit in, when you were born to stand out?

be free,


  1. I can understand this feeling 100%!

    I have been unemployed for over a year and a half, and I'm JUST figuring out, that I do not want to go back into the corporate arena. I love to cook and I have just added jewelry making to my passions. However I'm maxed out financially. Just thinking about a cubicle makes my stomach hurt!

    Do you sis, do you! I get inspired by people like yourself and others. I have a feeling that 2011 is going to be the year, I'm just going to do me and go for it!

    Peace! : )

  2. OMG!!! You are doing the damn thang! I am so proud of you and everything that you do. Keep on doing you.
