When I applied for MFA programs in December, I wanted to be accepted. I planned to be packing around April. Fortunately I was rejected from all 4 programs.
I was recently pink slipped as an art teacher and will not have a job next school year. I am so grateful.
These little “problems” are just such perfect timing. My shop is doing very well. I have enough savings to focus my energy on art and the shop for the next year. I am awestruck at the perfectly aligned path that the universe has laid out before me.
Through commitment and hard work, I have placed myself in the perfect position to pursue my heart centered desires. For the next year, I am going to create full-time. What a great journey for a blog titled “Seeking Joy”.
I am calling my journey the “Dharma Year”. Dharma refers to my ultimate purpose, my place in the cosmic alignment of things, conformity to my nature. For the next year I will pursue all of these things. I will work diligently to build a career in which I am able to pursue my truth.
The year is already off to an outstanding beginning. I am three days engaged (did NOT see that coming…my friend pointed out, “All a part of your Dharma Year!”). This summer I was accepted into a very selective drawing and painting intensive, Studio Escalier. In France. So I’ll be there if you need me…for three months. My art is going to blossom. I can’t even imagine how. So I’m not trying. I’m just letting it all unfold.
Thank you universe! Please follow my journey on instagram, facebook or on this blog!
