My so-called freelance life as a Creative Professional

my so-called freelance lifeReality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls. -Anais Nin

I have decided to escape — to live 2015 differently than I lived 2014. Part of that will include contracting for additional freelance work. 

And I would be absolutely delighted for you to join me for virtual coffee breaks, Braveheart! :mrgreen:

coffee-shopHave you decided to escape, too? To live 2015 differently than you lived 2014? Maybe your escape will be for something new — but also completely different than freelance work? Congratulations! Simply replace the word “freelance” with “more independence” or “more internal motivation” to reflect your intention to work less because of demand.

Creating within the conscious surrender of your ego — your own demands and expectations and what “they” will think.“releasing to become” {my post today at Secret Rebel Club}

letting go to become profileI am stargardener. I believe in the power of pause and country drives, of trying one more time; doing what is in your heart, succulence and serendipity. I add art and syllables {here} Right Brain Planner and at The Art Journaler Community. Communities resulting from this work are safe places of {becoming} for which I am ever-grateful.

within yourself

“It has been stated, but you may just need to be blunt.” she said.

I have lived my whole life comfortable with specific levels of The Uncomfortable. It is mangled and messy sometimes; I blurt out crap I later roll my eyes about.

August Dailies — Building Resilience

one thing leads to another

One thing leads to another … routines, rituals, dailies, day-be-day — complimentary themes that go well with Leah Piken Kolidas’ choice of “Cycles” as the theme for August’s Creative Every Day. Right brain planning is allowing something mundane to become art; this week I will post my daily planning-art — and likely  hopefully the remaining days of August. ;) Continue reading
