Well...I went forth with my plan this weekend, and listed my art. I ended up putting five on etsy (which I haven't tried selling on before.)and five on ebay(which I have, and actually did alright on in recent years.)
So...I made that decision, and followed through. The hard part for me is going to perservere, and not bale on myself. That is an absolute classic move that I have pulled several times over the years. The minute I start experiencing success with something I tend to cut myself off of it. I've spent many an hour pondering this. I'm pretty sure I know why...I am also aware of how completely nuts that must sound.
Anyway...here I go. And I wanted to take a moment this morning to thank all of you for your beautiful words of encouragement. Reading your own stories of strength and struggles has been enormously inspiring...
