I’ve always been an artist. Everyone in my family is an artist in one way or another. Creating art is part of who I am.
I feel so blessed to be able to do what I love and share it with the world. When I am decorating cookies I feel as though I am fulfilling my purpose in life. It has become my meditation.
It makes me wonder, then, why I drifted through four years of business school thinking that I had to get a 9 to 5 job in a pantsuit in order to be successful?
I learned recently that being present is the key to feeling content and whole. When we get caught up in dwelling on things that happened in the past or the problems that await us in the future, there is no space to enjoy this moment. It is no easy task to live in the present. But crafting, whether it is cookie decorating, crocheting, or drawing, is one of the few things that allow me to reach this place.
I truly believe that anyone and everyone can find this feeling through crafting. When you are creating something from your heart, you are doing God’s work.
