Pain is a Teacher

All things that instill pain are temporary. The more you focus on actively creating an enriched life for yourself, the faster the negative energy subsides.

I'm obtaining a successful art career, a move to Hawaii with Michelle, vitality, financial independence, a loving boyfriend and real happiness. 

Around this time seven years ago, I created this blog with zero understanding of how much it would help me. Writing your thoughts down creates momentum. I don't even recognize or care to remember the person I once was. I was a lost soul.

To protect myself from destructive behavior, I went soul searching, which led me on a beautiful journey. For the first time since I graduated in four years, I hung up my diploma. Proudly. That piece of paper taught me SO much more than how to draw. College sharpened my intuition, woke me up spiritually, brought Michelle and I together, gave me a glimpse of what independence feels like, allowed me to experiment, make mistakes, be reckless, decipher between good and bad people, allowed me to come out of the closet, meet some amazing people and Professors and guided me in the most magnificent ways. UNF was magical and now I have a new magical adventure that awaits around the corner.

Michelle returns from New Zealand in five months (the middle of December). To kick off 2018, we're attending a 10 day meditation retreat. I have no idea what we're going to gain from the experience, but I know it's going to be life changing. Prior to her return, I am going to create ten more pieces for the series. What's crazy is how before she left for her trip, the series consisted of 12 drawings, but once she returns, there will be 30.

I have two weeks to create each piece. This will be a test to see how capable I am to achieve what I set my mind to. I'll be working my other job three days a week, working out four days a week, eating super clean and allowing the Universe to help me create the future I want and dream of.

It's all possible, you just have to believe (in yourself) that it is!
