The Art Walk

.....When you enter into a new workshop, creative craft lab, you never know what you will find.

"Good things to know".....ask ...Many times I've stepped on toes in the journey but didn't know what I was doing.  Artists, we are a unique breed.....but the compassion and passion we have for "Beauty" we are like a small baby that looks like us, talks like us, crys like us. 

Featuring people:  I was once asked if I would like to be featured.  What a joy!  Then as the piece was ending the person said "oh and can you email all your friends to let them come sign up to my blog".  This is a reasonable request...but a part of me was sad because they had only stated they wanted to feature me because of their desire to help women.  

Being in Sales since college, I have learned that being up front with what you are looking for or need is the best policy.  It may not work for a lot of people.....I know that I personally scare the HECK...out of people because I am so up front!  But tomorrow isn't promised so to me it's better to "spit it out".  What drives me crazy is people are looking for that 'alterior motve...i.e. hidden agenda'.  It is sad that so many people have jaded us in this world ...that we can not just say "hey want an apple...i have two".

Enjoy Your Life, Change what you do not like....and keep changing it till you like it- Yaaaay!

This is a great read, with good advice! How true is the "what's in it for me" statement!
