Living my Dream

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined."
- Henry David Thoreau

I have this quote posted on the cork board in my office - which is a closet by the way.It's hard to be inspired, or for that matter, inspirational, in a closet. It's a space that if in your home, you would not hesitate to store your brooms, recycling bins, cleaning supplies. I've painted it "Melon", a bit of a creamy orange, but alas, it's still a closet and my co-workers love to ask me if I feel as though I'm sitting in a pumpkin.
I have changed many things for myself in the last three years - I have a brand new husband and a new home. I am closer than ever to the life I have always wanted for myself. The last piece of the puzzle is to leave my corporate job, and finally work for myself. In another life (read: When I was younger) I went to art school, worked in the fashion industry, lived and worked around the world. Then I had three wonderful children and after spending several years as a stay at home mom, I found myself in the job market, looking for a good salary and benefits. And I found one! But the pressures of a corporate sales & marketing job with a public corporation have after five years, grown tedious, time consuming and stressful.
Now I have found myself needing to rearrange my life once again to find that last piece of
the puzzle.
I am on a quest to complete my dream.
Another one of my favorite quotes:
"It's never too late to be who you might have been." --George Eliot

The world is my oyster!

The "youth" that I mentioned.
I'm ready for the next phase of my life!!
