    205 This shift in perspective will (also) change your life

    Do you wish things looked different for you? Whether it's your business, your Art, your finances, your health + wellbeing.
    Are you blaming others for where you aren't, yet? Are you second guessing your choices and finding fault with decisions you've made?
    Continuing on last week's theme, this choice, and change of attitude for me, was a tipping point.

Fabulous podcast!

Creative Thursday is in my top five favorite podcasts. Marisa shows up for each episode and shares from the heart. She reminds us that creativity can be nurtured in each one of us if we make the space for it.

Thank you!!

For the encouragement to go forward and share our art, gifts, and purpose!! Also, really appreciate you sharing your experience and advice about licensing on the podcast last week. 💗

Time for epiphany!

Marisa’s epiphany sparked one of my own, and listening to her podcast about hiding felt like a divine appointment. I had just been pondering how hidden I feel lately, and to be honest I had thoughts of quitting it all. Thank you, Marisa, for making me see I’m not hidden, rather I am HIDING. Oh boy, this is bringing on my own challenge to show up for myself and my tribe moving forward!
