Sounds like an oxymoron doesn't it? How can work and relax go together? When you finally choose to do something that you love...when working is so fun it doesn't feel like work, that's when! For me, that's being creative! I've always known being creative was fun but never thought I could make a living at it. Thank goodness for this junk revolution!
I get to pick at auctions and flea markets, work my magic to make everything beautiful and people actually want to display it in their homes. Even saving the old barns across our great state from being a pile of ashes when they start to fall down is so rewarding when it can once again be a work of art. So for now it makes my heart happy to make everything beautiful - that will be my life. I challenge you to go back to your roots of doing something that you truly enjoyed, even if it's just for fun and see what it can turn into.
