This blog is mostly about me finding myself as an artist. I have 182 days till the Spring semester starts at Academy Art and I feel that I have much to learn, do, and become before I step foot into a single class. I have always had a low self confidence in not just my art but myself. So I have been contemplating the idea of this blog for a while now. As lame as it may sound I have even shed a few tears.
See the thing is, I had hit a real rough patch a few years ago and let my self fall into a sixteen foot ditch. I felt as if my every dream was floating pass me on a white puffy cloud. A few years later I can gladly admit that I have reached a few of my accomplishments but I’m still not at the level I feel I need to be.
With that said, I need to not just grow as an artist, but as a human that is confident and faithful in my self and vision. From figuring out not just how to live on a budget but learning the discipline to stick to it, to developing a bag full of film, to finding confidence in myself, creating a product line, building a stronger relationship with God, getting back in touch with my art photography, and so much more.
Yes, it seems like a lot. But I have 182 days to make at least one of those things happen. As long as I try, as long as I post this damn blog, I feel that I am honestly able. So here’s to finding myself and becoming the artist I wish to be.

That's exactly how I feel right now.. I mean I know I'm not old enough to actually go through some things but I am at the place in my life where I am trying to become a better person and where I can start being completely honest with myself.
Just keep your head up and believe in yourself. Find what it is you want to do with your life, we have all been given a purpose. Then committ to it. But my problem is I doubt myself. I'm learning that you have to be honest with yourself. Two Quotes from Iyanla Vanzant I love: “The truth is that God believes in me” and “Trust in self is Trust in the Devine.”
