Have you ever woken up and thought. I am nothing! I live a life of perpetual inconsequence. I did . . . 2.5 years ago I woke up and made a decision. I sold everything I owned and I moved to another country with an industry that I didn’t know and a market that didn’t know me. I was terrified. But fear was more palatable than apathy. This is my big Sister, she loved modelling for this. Not because she is like this subject but because she likes my work. She is the antithesis of this image. A far cry from the yellow cardigan. A mother of four incredible children. And one of the bravest people I know, someone who has never been afraid to be her true self. One of the MOST talented illustrators I have ever seen. With long curly crazy red hair. But this image was about my apathy, my lack of plans.
and here I am living in Beautiful Sydney, with so many new friends and business I am very proud of that fills me with passion. It’s time to push myself a little further, to go again into the fearful unknown but I am reminded, I would rather die in my dread . . . . than drink from a cup of mediocrity. I would rather your buttons be pushed and your ideals or perspectives challenged, than to be dismissed. I want to be brave and dynamic. I want to be foolish and open. Because that is passion and I want to live a passionate life. Sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone. Start to live the life you dream of. Do you ever reach the dream, well I’d say not . . . but the journey is the best part isn’t it.
