“Escape from the Mundane” Photo of a friend, taken by me.

My heart aches to do something beautiful.

I long to do something important.

I am desperate.

I get so caught up in the “have to” and forget about the “get to”. It leaves me tired, pissed off, and unsure of what I’m supposed to be doing. A long list of tasks or the freedom for discovery in hours without need for productivity?

I hope soon there will be a balance of both.

Also, I just have to share the wealth of inspiration that is Michelle Gardella’s blog. I read through the earliest archives just out of curiosity and it was JUST what I needed. At that time, she was in a similar spot, trying to figure out her way and her business. That’s me right now.
