Several years ago my dear sister paid for my interior decorating school. My sister had studied to become an interior decorator and she knew that I would also enjoy learning about decorating.
Studying about something that I love helped me to keep my mind busy and positive. Instead of dwelling with my own self pity emotional issues because of my physical limitations, I felt that I was able to feed the starving creative and emotional side of me. I felt whole again.
Almost six years have passed and I haven't graduated yet. So what happened? Why didn't I keep up with my studies like I have promised myself?
Although I was super motivated to finish my studies I still had to deal with life.Yes, there were times that I had rather watch an old movie, listen to some jazz, and even blogging instead of picking up my books. And also there were times I questioned if I was ever going to work as an interior decorator.
But then was I only enjoying learning about decorating only because I might one day get a job as a decorator? The answer was, no. Decorating makes me feel happy. It brings me much joy and a sense of satisfaction to be able to transform a simple room into a more sophisticated and inviting place. I have always loved art, architect, designs, and the wonders of nature. So would I stop learning about these things because I can't become a famous artist or world renown biologist one day?
This time I am determined to finish what I had started! I am going to finish my classes and graduate and become an Interior Decorator!
Anyhow I loved to continue talking and chit chatting with you all. But I have to go and hit those books again. In the meanwhile you can watch me in action as I get ready to start studying:
Thanks for stopping by!
