It's dare

Can't embed this clip, but I invite you to follow the link for a bopping soundtrack to this post.

OK, are you wriggling to the rhythm? Dancing comfortably? Then I'll begin...

Tomorrow I dare. I dare to take the BIG new step in my career. I dare to take everything I've learnt in safe full time job environments and spread it about in the freelancing world. Tomorrow my first assignment begins. I'm daring to be big, bold and adventurous. I'm daring to live my dream. I'm daring to believe...

Next week I'm daring to put my artistic efforts for sale at a craft market. I even dared to organise it!

Dare I open that Etsy shop as my next step?

I dared to make quick art by flinging paint and ink on paper. How very satisfying. Two minute art! (See, I knew there was a good reason never to pack your paints away!)

Dare you make your wishes at Wishcasting Wednesday?


  1. Congrats on your bravery! I know how scary it is- opening an Etsy store is not half as scary as taking that first step is.....tho I must admit that I opened my shop, but was too intimidated to put anything in it for three months! Hooray for being on your way!

  2. i have had enough years of not daring to do things! tho i may be late ... but now ... i dare!!

    congratulations on all your dare-to-dos!! you rock!

    one new etsy shop coming up!!

  3. I dare you!

    As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also!

    Many blissings,

  4. As Wrightstuff wishes for herself, I so lovingly wish this for her also!!!!!

  5. Oh yes, I wish everything you wish for yourself and lots of luck for this huge step!!!
    May angels guide you.

  6. Go for it gal - what have you got to lose?
    It will be a learning experience whatever happens as long as you take positive steps forward - and no regrets.
    You ask if I have read Julia Cameron "The Artists Way", I haven't but I did a bit of investigating. The trouble is I am an old cynic and although I think books can be inspiring, I am always cautious about follow a method. Even though she purports to enable you to release your own creativity, she is dictating right away that you should be writing'morning pages' every day - no! I don't want any guilt about not doing this. These books are good to take what you need from and disregard the rest with a clear conscious. It is good that you have been inspired to take charge of your life - but YOU did it, with just a bit of help. Cherry pick from all the inspiring ideas around - make them fit your life, not the otherway round.(But I am sure you do this already)
    Best wishes for you enterprises, Jill

  7. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also!
