Other Etsy news, I made my 200th sale this morning, I'm over the top about that. I have for so long battled perfection paralysis and I truly believe stepping out, well more leaping out and into my creative self has cured me. Art allows you to set the bar in your mind's eye, there is no right or perfect way other than your rightful vision. I'm proud of myself. I have a custom order for my other shop and then I will focus on adding some more photography to Pretty in Peace. It's colorful in the beautiful Sonoran desert this time of year, a perfect time to delve into my photographic self.
On a more personal note, life has been good for a few days. I've been really trying to get a handle on my emotions. Not just the depression, but my emotional health overall. I've come to the realization that my sensitivity is a double edged sword. I feel both love and contempt with the same fervor. I'd of course like to keep the former and relieve myself of the latter, but I fear it will leave me too vulnerable. My ability to tap into that deep place for whatever purpose is both a blessing and a curse. I'm often met with so much ambivalence in social situations, that I opt for stagnation which is not at all beneficial. What would the world do without my wit?! Laughs.
