To blog or not to blog… that is the question? As I sit riddled with doubt, that niggling voice of fear chimes – “why do you think anyone would be interested in reading what you have to say Karyn Chopik?” Then it occurred to me... It doesn't matter!
Epiphany; One of the coolest things about being over 50 is that you no longer worry about the naysayers.
The universe is a fabulous magical place. Thoughts are energy. What you think becomes reality. The matrix lines up to our thought patterns. If you think, “I want to express myself and start painting” The Universe listens. It works into alignment co-creating your desires. Ads for painting classes will magically appear on bulletin boards at the grocery store, art gallery shows will show up on your news feeds. The universe is sending you arrows pointing in the direction of your dreams. If you say to yourself “I don’t have the talent to be a painter, who am I kidding!!” Again the Universe lines up to make your new thought form a reality. You will never start that painting class and you will never know the thrill of squeezing that first thick gob of magenta onto a pallet from a newly opened paint tube.
Did you know I hadn't originally planned on becoming a jewelry designer? It was something I always really enjoyed, but I didn’t think I could make a living at it so I studied to be a teacher instead. The Universe in her mysterious ways, made the teaching path really difficult for me. While I was waiting to find a teaching job I started making jewelry as a side project. Much to my surprise, the matrix lined up very quickly. I felt that the Universe had listened to my heart's true desire and opened that path for me, all that was left to do was walk it. That's not to say that the journey hasn't been without it's difficulties, but I have never once regretted my decision to not teach. The irony is that I never thought I could make a living as an artist, and here I am 30 years later making a living as an artist! Pinch me!
I have long considered writing a blog, but I was quick to second guess myself. But again the Universe has opened this opportunity for me and so I am going to dive right in and take it. Moving through the fear and self resistance… I believe that my words will resonate with those of a similar vibration. I believe I have valuable information to share, as an artist, and as a student of the great mystery.
I want to share with you the source of my inspiration, my thoughts, and the funny moments that created an "aha" moment for me. I look forward to paving a road to future possibilities through writing, and I am glad I'm not alone in this journey. Thank you for reading!
