Worry post #2


Wow. Right after I got done saying that so far the financial crisis had not really touched anyone I knew yet, it started. One friend got laid off. Then I got my days cut from 4 to 3. Now today another friend got laid off from a job she has had a long, long time. I feel badly for my friends, but I KNOW they will be fine and as for me, well I have no idea how I can afford to work only 3 days with very little art selling, but you know what? I will. I am grateful I still have 3 days of work. I am also expecting to sell art, yes, I do indeed :-), so I will now have more time to make art and I must admit I am happy about that, it is what I live to do. I WILL NOT PANIC! This is my mantra. Life in this moment it very good. I want to send love to my friends and all the folks out there reading that have lost a job recently. I will leave you with this photo of magic Taos mountain. Be well.

I most certainly agree that you will be fine, that being the case, you may as well enjoy the extra time off while it lasts.

WT-You are so right, I will be complaining about working too much, soon enough :-).

Annie, you will do well, just hang on and believe in yourself. Yes, the credit crunch and financial crisis have hit worldwide. While I dont know anyone yet jobless, it's already being felt everywhere, the slow or rather tortoise paced business..Have a great week my friend, remember - positivie thinking..big hugs XO

Sorry about your friends. Will summer bring more opportunities to sell your art? Can you set up in the Taos plaza and sell direct to tourists?

awww annie i can relate to the struggle of letting go and not worrying all will be well... i so believe in the power of our thinking to direct our actions and therefore our lives... but then there are those random, seemingly inexplicable things that happen in life. so the best i do is when i give over the mystery and the idea that 'all is as it should be'. not necessarily good...just 'as it should be'.
bess you and hold to your path of doing the next right thing that is in front of you. i think that's a good guide.

M.Kate-Thanks and big hugs back!
Suki-My art is not the type that sells to the tourists, they like landscapes and I am fresh out :-).
Robin-Yes that is it exactly. Good or bad, it is all well and as it should be.

That is so sad about your friends. Perhaps it is their chance to do something for themselves that they never had the time to do before?

Each change is a chance for a change for the better in our lives. Oh what's that saying ah "an opportunity to excel". I know you will make good use of your extended crafting hours. :-)

Have you thought about prints of your "heavier to post" items say on small things like cards so they reach a wider audience?

May you climb your own mountain and be with whatever arises. Your perspective is so uplifting in tough times.

It's all around and it is worrisome. I think the more we hear about it, the more momentum it takes. It will work itself out but I feel for you!
