The universe—has been good to me the past 25 years. I count myself as one of the lucky ones to have met so many good people who have influenced who I am today. I count myself as one of the lucky ones to have experienced just enough struggle to learn about myself, to appreciate…to reach and let go without breaking.
I am only one person, one voice, one idea out of billions, and I have always been comfortable being a wallflower, a leaf in a summer breeze drifting along any path that opened before me—but I have also always wanted to be a person, a voice, an idea that touches billions. I have wanted to inspire the way I am often inspired by a story, a song…a clear blue sky after rolling off the wrong side of the bed.
That feeling of your insides lifting—I want to be the one to make you feel it.
Today, I am resigning from my full time job. After 7 years of working (from retail to corporate), I have learned that stability can be poison—a poison that paralyses your person, your voice, and your ideas very slowly, eventually, permanently.
In the coming months, I’ll be experimenting a lot to develop my illustration style, exploring ways to communicate through art and learning more about myself.
I will be giving up many comforts, disappointing many people (mainly family), but I have never given anything my all and it’s about time.
Life is lived on the edge, with the threat of the fall, but also the exhilaration of taking flight. Right?
