1. to come, change, or grow to be
2. to come into being
I walked past this last week while walking with a friend and I instantly knew I had to take a picture.
I also instantly thought about my blog, my photography, the jewelry I've started to make again, carving stamps, the etsy store that isn't open, and dreaming of the much needed studio space.
And then I took a deep breath...took the picture and kept walking.
While at lunch, my friend mentioned that she reads my blog at midnight after her day job and Mom duties are finished and how proud she is that I have started discover the creative part of me again.
I love my friends. They really are an extended part of my family. Thank you!
Looking back on this picture I realized that it is a process. To BECOME. This journey of creating, taking more pictures, living a creative life - my life.
I also realized that right now, at this moment, I am BECOMING...slowly BECOMING the artist that I want to BE.
I need to enjoy the journey, do what I can, not beat myself up when I cannot, and most importantly embrace where I am at this time.
Don't get me wrong, I still have dreams and goals but part of them is THE BECOMING, the growing, the ride, the journey.
Even though I may not BE where I want to BE entirely...I am BECOMING. Rather than just dreaming - I am doing, creating and listening to the song my soul sings.
Today, I encourage you to BECOME...
Listen to that little voice, that whisper that teases and tugs at your soul.
How will you take one step (may it be sideways if necessary) towards living your dream - towards BECOMING who and what you are deep down inside?
