So I quit my job this week… After nearly ten years of consulting for KnowIT I felt it was time for me to move on. It’s a very good company to work at, but I’ve been thinking about this for years, so it wasn’t like it was lightning from blue skies. I am not quite sure that I know what future brings, except for my MajaDesign position. But I feel free and able to do whatever I want and that is a wonderful feeling.
I have done some serious thinking the past year. Maybe too much thinking to be honest. I don’t want any regrets. I don’t want to wake up when I’m 70 wondering why I didn’t jump. Why I didn’t take the chance while I had it. I’ve been thinking a lot like that ever since I graduated. That’s why I got rid of the TV (do you want to tell your grandkids that you watched TV all your life or that you did something creative with your time?) and travelled so much.
I want to be proud of the life I lead. It doesn’t have to be glamorous or anything. But I want to be a good role model for Joel and I want my family to be proud of who I am. I created this canvas during one of my serious thinking moments. It’s about what you see when you look yourself in the mirror and being able to like what’s looking back at you.
I have used the Coffee In The Arbour collection for this canvas (6×6). The Prima frame has a real mirror and you can fold it down so you can read some thoughts that I have written inside.
