with such deep gratitude

Last night I opened the doors to share my new studio space. It has been for me much more than a transition to a new space, it has been an intense transition for me personally. 

When you begin a journey that you KNOW you are meant to but are uncertain of the other side, it can be quite unsettling. It is vulnerable, it is scary. However, something changed in me. I had no preconceived notion that this was going to happen. 

I feel like I found my new and higher self in this process. I feel like with the hope of spring (trust me, I live in Rochester, NY it is JUST a hope at this point. There is snow on the ground!) there is a new bloom. I am ready to work. I am ready to create. I am ready to take big huge chances. 

The overwhelming and tremendous support I received yesterday felt like nothing I have ever experienced before. When I opened my doors (a whole seventy-five minutes EARLY) I felt nothing but joy in wanting to share the next step of my journey. There was no panic, there was no regret – there was only joy. The fact that I was confirmed repeatedly by loved ones and strangers alike was incredible. 

Last night felt like a party- a dance, a tremendous bloom! 

I have said for a long time that if you live your fingerprint you cannot help but bloom. I gratefully feel as though I am living those words. This is not to say that life is without challenge, but it is to say, I know I am on the right path. 

Thank YOU for blessing me with your love, support, and kindness. 

the best is yet to be…with love and gratitude, 

Susan
