So we're in our second week of the new year and I am a bit freaked out.  In 2009 I created a website, had an etsy shop and made every possible excuse in the book as to why my art business failed. From not having enough computer time between kids doing their homework, or not enough time to create between my day job and running kids to after school activities. Eventually everything in my art-wanna-be-business went downhill. Between then and now I have resurrected my website a few times only to let it go again.    Now lets fast forward to 2017.  My daughter creates a new website for me, and even designed business cards. Now I am supposed to work on the website to tweak it, add art to it, and be fully vested in this. I literally have no excuses for failure.  I have no valid excuses not to create art, promote my art and sell my art.  I feel like a broken record, like one of those people that keep telling you there going to do something in their life but NEVER do it....   I REALLY do not want to be one of those people!!!!!    

Last night I had a dream that I bought an all yellow scratch off ticket and when I scratched off the yellow, all of these smiley faces were winning amounts. So my scratch off ticket was a big time winner!   So in my dreambook I looked up the color yellow and looked up winning lottery ticket.

yellow: You have a fear or an inability to make a decision or to take action. 

winning lottery ticket: To see a lottery ticket in your dream indicates that you need to leave some aspect of your life to fate. Learn to let go and let fate take its course.

Is this a contradicting dream or what????

  1. Nooooo, it's not contradicting at all! It says you are having a problem moving forward (yellow) but then it gives you the solution to your problem (take the steps and leave the rest to fate). It's a beautiful dream, really, the yellow came in the form of smiley faces and a winning ticket. Go forth, my friend, and don't worry about the outcome. Just be on the journey. Because remember, there really is no such thing as failure, unless we stop trying. Every time our efforts don';t unfold as we wish, we learn something for the next time. And who is judging anyway? You did not fail before. You are just on a new chapter now. I can't wait to visit your new website and share it with others. Be brave, dear Drita, you are so talented. But as the dream suggests, abandon the expectation of any particular outcome and just go on the journey. All will be well. And I'm just so moved by how much your girl believes in you. I believe in you, too!
