This Saturday I will participate in Women in Art Marketplace at the Eiteljorg Museum. It is a small show held at the museum. It is a juried show, which means you had to apply and be chosen to be in it. I wanted to apply, but then found out it was the Saturday before spring break, so I thought no, I won't. Yet, I kept thinking about it, I had never applied or been in a juried show of this level. So, I thought, I will apply for the experience, I probably won't get chosen. So I did, then the email came that I was chosen. Now, a big decision, delay spring break for a day and do the show or be happy with being chosen and go on vacation. My very supportive husband urged me to do it, so here I am, nervous and excited for this new experience, but thinking that I am crazy for doing this the day before a vacation!
It has been stressful but it has been very rewarding. My hope is to have a great day and a great spring break. I have been asked multiple times, why did I do this to myself, and I had to think about that and ultimately, my answer was that I was being true to myself, this is important to me and I needed to do it. I needed to do the things necessary to make it happen because I didn't want to live with the "what if's?" if I didn't do it.
Was it easy? no Was it convienent? no but will it be worth it? It already is! So my conclusion is this, if you have a dream, or a need, or a want, go for it and do what is necessary to make it happen for you!
My hope is you all have a great day and think about your dreams.
