Checking Off My Life List Like a Boss

IMG_3028582

This picture has absolutely nothing to do with what I’m about to tell you, but it makes me laugh. So, today, I’ve decided to take a firm stance that joy trumps relevancy. And that? Kind of does have something to do with what I’m about to tell you.

It hasn’t been that long since the last time I posted about my life list. Still, I feel a bit guilty at how little of it has been accomplished. And, if I’m honest, a bit amused by how many items I no longer have any desire to pursue. Oh, how finicky my interests.

Recently, I’ve actually been working on one of the goals though. The one in which I stop throwing away everything I create. The one in which I make my Mother’s dreams come partially true and do something with the modicum of talent life has dealt me.

This is, probably, the single most difficult goal on the list. Some of the others will require a lot of money or a heaping helping of luck, or even both, but this one takes putting myself out there. And we all know that’s the hardest thing of all.

I’ve opened an Etsy shop.

It’s under stocked and under staffed and I’m still not sure about it, but it’s there. It’s open. It’s one more step in the right direction.

Also, it’ll, perhaps, make the man stop complaining about all the pictures I never display and prevent him from digging through the trash to retrieve every painting I throw away. And that’s always a good thing.
