Trying to find a balance

I’ve been looking for work as an “older” experienced administrative assistant, but I’m feeling a change.  I am a dedicated worker, but it’s been challenging to say the least.  I will keep trying nevertheless and plan to upgrade my medical knowledge even more.  Of course, I will still keep at the music and photography pursuit.  I’m not dead yet! 🙂  For those of you who feel the same, I say, don’t give up the fight!  Here’s a site to support artists:  https://theabundantartist.com/balance/

Feeling overwhelmed, but hopeful…

I can imagine that there are many artists, whatever their art is, who feel like giving up on their dreams.  Lately, I’ve run into financial difficulties and realize I cannot pursue art alone.  I am worried that I will lose much time and energy I would rather channel into my music creation.  But there is also a financial worry when your art is not “bringing home the bacon,” so to speak.  It’s just a matter of looking inside yourself and seeing what you can concentrate on.  How to manage your time better and to compromise.  I look at it this way, when I “retire” from my day job, I’ll really have time to create!  But, for now, I will do as much art in my free time as possible.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way!  Here’s an article for those feeling overwhelmed:  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/stephenie-zamora/when-life-feels-overwhelm_b_5567778.html

Stay positive and hopeful – even if you’re frustrated! 🙂
