This lack of creativity has had me thinking about what it is that I really want out of life. I would love to - stay at home, create a few beads, learn more glass skills, potter around my large garden, learn more about photography, spend more time with my family, cook (and enjoy the process), teach jewelry making again and even video the odd tutorial. That 9-5 day job is stifling my real passions.
Well it is time to take a stand, pull up my big girl undies (Australian Slang for underwear) and make a change. Whilst I love being able to go to work and be appreciated for what I do, I just don't love it that much to keep me ultimately happy.
I have come to the realization that I have to start my "real life design" on the side whilst still doing the 9-5 thing. This poses a problem for me, as I am so easily distracted during the day with all my amazing ideas for my "real life design". It is going to take Focus, Focus, Focus, Organization and Patience - these are skills I need to hone in on.
Step One - JUST START!!!
One of the life coaches I listen to regularly says to FAIL FAST. So if what you are doing is not working, find out sooner than later and change the plan.
So over the last couple of days I STARTED!!. and now I wanted to share that first step with you.
I compiled my first ever Kindle Book. The book features my jewelry designs using my own lampwork bead creations. It is a book that offers inspiration to beaders struggling with what to do with that awesome beads that they bought.
To celebrate Step One - I am offering the PDF version of the book for FREE to 5 of my fellow bloggers.
All I am asking is if you can share this book on your blog or your facebook page and leave me a comment to let me know that you have done so.
I will let the lucky 5 Bloggers or Facebook fans know on Wednesday 7th August - I will contact you again then so I can send it to you via email.
