thanks Jacquelyn, for the insightful writing. sometimes we just need to step back look at what we have created, in wood or written in your case. I guess to see if we’re on the right path, the right direction, to validate our struggle to create, while paying the bills. My hats off to those who dare to be able to create a product or art and make a living while doing it. I on the other hand; I, must work my forty hours, and perfect my techniques on the weekends. the coward that I am.
Here’s to you Jacquelyn…create, and endeavor in the arts, as long as you can.

Good story –
in the last part you ask the question. Is it true that if I follow my dreams I will succeed?

The answer is YES! But it is up to you to decide what success looks like.
Just because you follow your passions – doens’t mean you will be rich (money wise).

But if you are true to your passions, the life you are making will be a source of strength instead of stress. WHen you are actually enjoying what your work is – then whether you are just doing OK financially or making 200K is not the driver. (but starving is starving)

Location can also play into that – if you live in the middle of the prairie in a one horse town, and you want to live as an artist – - you will need to do more travelling to be successful. Nobody survives as an island.

-- “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” Mark Twain
