Thanks for coming
well- that was a long (but fun) day :))
seriously, i can't even believe i got all these crazy talented women to conspire to help launch my release. i must be the luckiest girl in the world or something! everyone's posts were so creative, i just want to give a *big* round of hugs to today's guest posters!! each and every one of you ladiez rock my world.
i also want to give an enormous shoutout to my AWESOME KICKSTARTER BACKERS, who obviously helped out so much, i can't even believe.
also the musicians who contributed their time and talents. plus someone i really, really couldn't have done it without- saul.
again, i really hope everyone had fun today, and we helped put smiles on some people's faces. if evidenced by everything you've seen and read, the conclusion i hope you draw is that making dreams come true is so totally possible.
sure, it may not look exactly how you pictured it.
perhaps you wanted to sell your painting for $10,000 instead of $100. the handmade business isn't picking up as fast as you'd like. you thought you'd move to new york city and find success right away, but instead you've been a broke "artist" for five years (twiddles thumbs...) maybe you thought you'd have this rather than that. etc., etc.
things will never, ever turn out the way you thought. that's just reality.
but it's my true belief that if you want something bad enough, you will find a way have it. it might come at a great cost, and take a long time. it probably won't be easy (if you're one of the lucky ones, maybe it might!) i also think it's okay to give up on dreams that you might feel are weighing you down...
but it's my feeling that i'd rather try something than regret never having done it. frankly, sometimes this philosophy can lead me into some miserable situations. lol! but i have no regret on my conscience, and feel proud to have lived my life this way (for the most part...)
even though i'm not "where i want to be" yet (sometimes, i don't even know where that is), i am forever climbing. forever seeking. trying to enjoy the journey.
so again, head on over to bandcamp and pick up a cd if you feel moved to.
since it was such a a hefty day, i'll probably take tomorrow off. but i'll definitely see you again this week.
thanks for sticking around :)) xxoxo
