It makes me feel excited- well, Excited and scared!

Post by leapinglizards on Tue Jul 29, 2014 10:49 am

If any of you are musical fans, you'll recognize where the topic title came from....

OK so I told Rhonda a while ago, but I have to share... now that I signed the contract...

In October, after 22 years at Disney, the last 10 of it pretty miserable, I am quitting my job and opening a physical store in the International Drive tourist area of Orlando! I'll be doing body paint art there (Obviously not FULL paints nor anything that isn't G rated), selling canvases of body paint art, as well as showcasing other kinds of art that I do. (Masks, Artisan Soap, etc)

Here is all the info http://www.livecanvasart.com/announce.htm (Warning- there IS also a fund raising link on that page so if that offends anyone don't look.)

PLEASE send me good vibes and tell me I am NOT a crazy fool!

Gooooooooooood vibes! You are so NOT crazy. Seeking and actualizing <<-- your true path in life is sane, wise, uplifting, hard work Smile, beautiful, shining, authentic, hard work Smile, real, exciting, magical, hard work Smile, and the very best way to LIVE. On a planet filled with people who are unhappily NOT doing it, you ARE doing it. There is nothing foolish in that at all. If everyone tried this, the happiness quotient on planet earth would magnify a millionfold in one bright morning. Good luck Dean!!! †I love youI love youI love you

P.S. I did the same thing when I stopped accepting new work in my other field, and began to replace it with face painting gigs. Hard work. Surprised) Happiness. Surprised)

...and though everything familiar seemed to disappear forever at the end the path lay Granny once again!

Congratulations on stepping away from the familiar and ordinary and taking such an exciting (AND scary) step. May you get your new cloak of wolf skin and much success on your journey!

I agree 100% - Do what you love and love what you do. Life is too short to do it any other way.†

So we wait in the dark
Until someone sets us free,
And we're brought into the light,
And we're back at the start.

BTW, that is AMAZING, good for you Smile

Yes... it WAS! Grumble Grumble.... The entire mall has delayed opening for one month! We now open the week before thanksgiving. Which does give me more time to prepare but.... WHAT a let-down! Sad
