I’ve been wanting this book for ages – I’ve been pining over it since I first saw it on Moira’s Etsy shop (Ariom Designs) but I just couldn’t justify spending $122 on a book that I didn’t actually have a purpose for.
Recently my fiance and I have been getting a little bit of extra money so that we could both have some spending money each week and I chose to buy this as my first ‘thing’.
I know what I’m going to put in it now – it will be my new ‘Book of Shadows’ (that’s not what I want to call it but I don’t have another name – I guess I will have to think of one!).
The significance of all this is that when I contacted Moira about setting up a payment plan she told me that it was an important piece to her and she was glad it had finally found a good home. On inquiring to what she meant (I love good stories that go with artworks) she told me that it was something she created during a major turning point in her life. She said it was “where I realised almost wasn’t enough and I was deserving of setting my skills to something truly worthy” to do what made her happy and to just allow it to happen. I feel this describes exactly what I’m going through right now with my job and my art – I want my art to be an integral part of my life but I’ve never considered making money from it. Could I?
Either way I have a feeling this piece could be something that helps with my healing through art project I’ve just undertaken.
I’m really happy I’ve finally gone through with this – it took me a while but I got there in the end. Hopefully I will eventually say the same for a few of the decisions I need to make in my day to day life.
Amanda…. you are so beautiful….. what can i say… reading this…..THANK YOU! I appreciate so much how truly you understand this piece and what I communicated with you. If gaining an income from your passion and what truly fullfills you is what you want then there is simply no question! Our interaction is a perfect example of this as I am doing exactly this and you are part of what makes it possible for me so again thank you!! Everything takes time and you have your own pace.. allow all the space you need to make these choices and create the outcomes that support your growth the most! Bless xo
It’s absolutely my pleasure Moi. You’ve been an inspiration to me and hopefully I can be an inspiration to someone else 🙂 xx
