I would like to share a thought or two as I smile at the good fortune of my first day of business. I opened an Etsy shop “Artisticlyxpressed”
I was sure something good would happen and knew I would sell some of my art. I will smile and say I didn’t sell a thing. Sounds kind of odd to say that yet I was the happiest I have been in some time as far as where and how I will transition my life to what I choose rather than what I have to do.
Sometimes life gives a bigger gift than we had hoped for. I had been hoping for a sale a few dollars in my pocket and validation that I was on the right track to living and being me. Dreams? No I choose to be me and make my choices and desires reality a path I took years to find.
On my first day of business I didn’t sell a thing! 🙂 I got scouted and invited to showcase my art! I have been trying to get in local galleries after many ” we are not taking new artists and you need to be recommended” statements I am happy! I wanted to share this smile and perhaps a few more.
Better than a sale!
If you are in the area it would be awesome to see you stop by and say hi! I could use and would be grateful for your support. I also have to sell 20 tickets the proceeds are used to help upcoming artists of all types by hosting shows like this one. So if you are in the area please come and see the exhibits and support the artists as well as the arts. If not and you want to just help me and or the art community please buy a ticket. If you buy one from my first art showcase not only will you be investing in the arts you may find satisfaction in knowing you helped me become famous! lol 🙂
I thank you for allowing me to share a thought or two… I couldn’t resist sharing my joy with you all. Even a day when you start a new venture and don’t sell a thing can be a day of great joy in a very unexpected way!
Thank you for being you and being the positive change our word needs by sharing your smiles and sharing your love you are helping make our world a better place for all we share it with. Thank you! 🙂 Joe
