Everyday I’m Hustlin’

The life of an artist is not always fun and passion seeking.  There are times of intense stress and days I just want to give up.  Now don’t get me wrong – I love the path I have chosen but those feelings just seem to creep up into my soul.   In the end, life seems to work itself out.  Maybe because I am just doing what is meant for me and I have chosen what my divine path should be.  But, again, those negative downers like to burst out from time to time to say hello and burst those bubbles.   Although I get into my funks every now and then – they become fuel – the food to bust out and make a move.   I taught myself how to hustle my way out of a funk.   I have developed a hunger (not for food) that feeds my soul to push forward towards success.

So I in a sense – I am Hustlin’ everyday

Am I not going to make the mortgage this month or pay for those extravagant college tuition costs for my son?   Well, what’s a girl to do?   I am going to push myself to create more, be persistent and get someone to buy some art and support my hustle.   Does it always work?  I will say about 9 out of 10 times.  I find a side hustle – a teaching job or a quick commission to hold me over.  It’s like when I am in need of help, the creative soul reinforcements come calling to save the day.   Someone magically reaches out and decides to buy that painting they have been looking at for a few months.   I get a random email for a local pop up show.  Something always seems to come through – just at the right time.

Do you believe in magic?

I am not going to call this all luck.   Maybe karma.  There is some strategy going on here.  But I truly believe because I have chosen my path and am passionate about what I do everyday – the happiness finds a way to return its favor just in the nick of time for me.   It’s like the positive Gods refuse to let me give up.  Because this is my destiny – this is my chosen path.

What happens when you feel like throwing in the towel?

All I can say is don’t!

  • Stay positive.
  • Don’t give up and stay strong.
  • Find your hustle.
  • What can you do to support your dream?
  • Are you willing to do whatever it takes to get there?
  • What are you willing to give up?
  • Can you sacrifice to make your dream come alive?
  • If it doesn’t work this time – are you willing to pick yourself up, even if it hurts and start over?
  • Can you listen to your inner soul and not the outside critics who will try to keep you down?
  • Can you silence the inner critic that tells you – this can’t be done?
