i have very few Absolute Truths in my life: Convictions that i would literally give up my life for.
1. My children are by far my most beautiful Creation.
2. There is no better man for me then my husband.
3. I only need a handful of really good friends: those people for whom know my thoughts before i do.
4. I would have an affair with Ani DiFranco if given the opportunity.
5. I was put on this earth to Create Art.
it become blatantly clear to me two weeks ago as i was driving the familiar route to work, the same road i have driven the last 10 years, sometimes in the middle of the night, that i was truly beginning to suffocate with every additional trip north to the Hospital. For months, my husband and i had been discussing my future both as an employee and as an Artist. And this particular day, two weeks ago, i will give credit to my own Genius, for giving me the courage and/or stupidity (pick your poison) to hand in in my resignation: not because i had another job lined up, not because i won the lottery, but because quite simply i was not honoring who i truly am and why i am here by doing anything BUT making Art.
Next week will be my final week and i have absolutely no idea where this will all lead me. I do believe however, by following my passion, listening to my heart, keeping those friends close, and believing in my Self the only possible outcome for my future is a successful one. Someone asked me the other day, “Loryn, aren’t you scared?” Of course.
But, if fear is the only thing keeping me from honoring who and what i am, well, quit frankly, i would rather be held prisoner for a crime i didn’t commit then held prisoner by my own demons.
