pinterest is far too addicting, if you havent been there yet, dont.
warning: this isn't a "fun" blog post.. but i have always blogged for me, to first and foremost document my life.. i love looking back on archived posts and be reminded of things i experienced and things i have been through....so this is the post that i have avoided... not blogging as much as i have wanted, because i knew i needed to address this...
i'm fearful how things come in threes, and i havent had my 3rd yet.. i think i have, but not sure... not sure how much more i can take
i can rant about shopping local, supporting the little guys... who know your name, can answer all your questions, offer above and beyond waaaaayyy more then the BIG guys, work harder then those other stores and downright love their jobs.... BUT 1. melissa did well with that here , and 2. i'm exhausted of it all... i feel like everyone is singing that song, but not DOING IT!
i have heard all the comments
"when one door closes, another opens"
"you are talented you will find something"
etc. etc. etc.
and i appreciate them, most of them are coming from the customers who have turned into friends and whom i have gotten to know VERY well over the past 8 years, but i'm not going to lie... it is still downright scary
the economy sucks. the cape doesnt offer many job opportunities for LSS managers... I haven't been in the REAL graphic design market for over 8 years.... and although i know i am a fighter... i just dont see "the light at the end of the tunnel" right now
things i do know.
i want to some how continue in the papercrafting industry... hoping that teaching will still fit in my NEW life
i want to stay near the ocean if possible... whether that means its going to be on my left... or right who knows...
and i will eventually figure this out
i have LOVED my 8 years at colorful creations... i have always called it "my store" even though i don't own it, because i have poured my heart and soul into it... I have been soo lucky to have worked with jayne... where she let me voice my opinion, and really grow.... I'll never forget the day i walked into the falmouth store, to show her some of my card samples... hoping i could teach a few classes here and there... ha! funny how that turned out!
so bear with me the next few months... and if you hear of ANY, aNy, any, AnY job prospects please let me know... for the most part i am going into this with an open mind... knowing i may have to move, i may have to have a complete 180 career change....
and as i have done in the past with all the other obstacles i have over come.. i say BRING IT... i'm ready
"and baby i'm much stronger then you know..."
and because he makes me smile i'll leave you with this:
