sorry to all my watchers and friends but I have no where else to throw this in the universe and maybe all you arty people have been down this road at some point or other as well.

I am struggling with myself. like literally I fight with myself on a daily basis. it started off small and just a desire and a dream. now its becoming a nightmare.
I have a good job but I hate it. I don't want to do it for the rest of my life. be stuck doing things that I have no drive or passion for and quiet honestly I'm tired of people's attitudes.
when you don't like doing something it reflects in your work. the other day I got in big trouble because I forgot to make a booking. I was in tears how much I hate myself for not doing my job well and honestly don't want to.

Then I try to flip the coin and say "you're finally financially stable enough to help people comfortably" I just feel I am being so selfish that I have daily thoughts now of just up and quitting my job with no regrets.
Then I fall into a spiral of financial worry as I have a daughter to support and bills to pay and petrol/gas to put in the car and I want to look after and support my family.

I keep daydreaming of just doing this for one more year to clear my debts and then hitting the high road of a starving artist.
fear. worry. doubt. horror. insecure. depression. anger. self loathing. selfishness.
these are the negatives that swirl in my brain

do you know what I want to do?

I want to draw. I want to paint. I want to create. I want to inspire. I want to bless others. I want to work on my characters. I want to write my story. I want to flourish and grow. 
most importantly I want to love what I do on a daily basis.

I count my blessing in this job really I do. I will never have another opportunity like it ever again but sometimes money just actually isn't worth happiness. 

I am not looking for pity really but I am tired of holding this in. I am tired of feeling alone on this walk and I know ultimately this is what I want to do for a living.
trust me I will still work hard and on a daily basis. I cannot bare the thought of begging for money oh no. I want to nurture my skills to make a profit off of it.

time

time is what really is killing me. I just don't have it. not for Bible studies, not for cooking, not for cleaning, not for my family and when I do leisure things like play Sims 4 I feel so guilty and that I've wasted 3 possible hours of art.

I feel lost.... but not hopeless.


Has anyone else traveled this road? do you regret it? any advise you can offer? 
Being a responsible adult sucks!!

thanks for reading if you did. means alot
Good fruits by Meeowy

Here are some props to aid the theme "Good fruits" 
9 fruits so 1 on each colour. Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control.

complete pun booklet by Meeowy
complete pun booklet
I made a thank you joke/pun booklet as a gift for all the guests at the wedding.

after much trial and error this was the complete layout of the booklet. thanks to this video www.youtube.com/watch?v=21qi9Z…
I was able to make the booklets without further complications such as glue or threads etc.
skillz level up
