I’ve been feeling this tug of war going on with myself for awhile now. On the one hand I love art and creativity and playing in my studio and making stuff. I like being alone and experimenting. Makes me happy and keeps me calm. On the other hand I love my shop and working at the store and being a business owner. I love meeting new people and hearing about the creative journeys they have been on. I love helping those people new to art to find their place in the creative world.
I am constantly having this discussion with myself about the two sides. Which side is my true passion? Which side is more important? Which side should I be devoting my time and resources towards? Where does my real strength lie?
It is a constant debate and I finally decided that I don’t really have to choose. I can embrace both sides of who I am. I can make art and I can be a successful business owner and that is OK! Of course, I may need to be reminded of this on occasion, as I’m sure this will be an ongoing debate.
