Inspiration Wednesday …

I have been looking for Career Opportunities lately.

I am of a particular stage in life that I have a wealth of eclectic experience.

It wasn’t until I had a wonder-full conversation with my Bruddah Cuz Lawrence (Thank YOU) did the ‘lightbulb’ go off so to speak. I’ve been trying to mold myself into what I think they want and leaving out what makes me distinctive.

I have been self sabotaging + not looking to myself for Inspiration.

Mark my words, from now on I will be sharing all my unique endeavors because each and every one of them have shaped me into who I am today!

I went through a Decade’s worth of saved bits, and I have A L O T of saved bits. I purged as I went through it all + then it dawned on me, ‘How am I going to take all this s t u f f with me if and when I move?’

Find the opportunity first, I said to myself.

… I am glad I saved this lovely Recommendation Letter from my then Supervisor at the Del Paso Heights Library.   I ran their Homework Center.

Still the best job I ever had.

1. I taught Art within the Sacramento Public Library System.

Absolutely loved it:

2. I taught Art at the Crocker Art Museum.

It was more challenging than my Library Gig: but I am a Self Taught Artist + went entirely on my Passion for Art + my Muse.  The experience made me a better Artist.

3. I was invited to participate in two Inspired Art Fairs.

It made me fall in love with London + it’s Art Community + I made life long Mates + I sold a lot of my Art.

I will have a Creative Career in London one day.

5. I made CD Covers + Posters. It was a lot of fun collaborating with other creative folks:

6.  I made a cover for an Internationally known Music Magazine.

I was in a few Mixed Media Magazines + a German book on Websites as well.

As I found more + more bits to scan,  I became more and more Inspired.

Most of my past experiences, I did not have any formal training in that position. I had and still have, that Grassroots + DYI attitude that has served me well.

And at the end of all this, I SO look forward to that next big Adventure.

If anyone reading this has an opportunity that might appeal to me or might be a good fit:
