Carrie told me in a comment on my Vision Board post that over the course of the year, my board would reveal more of itself, and possibly change meaning as I moved though. I thought I’d keep track of those changes and go ahead and share them, since I had already shared my board.
One of the things I had put on my board had to do with work.
In particular, see the words turned on their side that say “artists and artisans”? I’ve always struggled with considering myself an artist, but putting this on the board… well, it made me realize that I am both artist and artisan. Saying it out loud, and giving myself permission to call myself and artist and accept that is what I am was like breaking down a dam: within moments, my brain was flooded with ideas I wanted to explore and work I wanted to make, posts I wanted tow rite and people I wanted to talk to.
Sometimes, all we need is permission from ourselves to just be what and who we are.
