I discovered art in kindergarten and swiftly decided I cannot make a living out of art. Today, 20 years later, I have no life without art. 

I am employed and, of course, I changed some jobs until now. I did what I had to do: employers were satisfied and I got the monthly paycheck.
Yet, none of the jobs I had made me engage like art does. I am a mediocre employee, one with no significant contribution to the company and to the world. An impostor. In my company, with or without me things would be the same. I live in guilt.
It hurts saying this. That's why I've been hiding it for years. I want to fix this. I want to put my energy somewhere where I can be brilliant. I want my life to make sense.
I was not able to admit all the above until, by chance, a few weeks ago I started painting again.
Being creative unlocked the true me.

This is just the beginning
I would quit my job today, but I can't sell my art yet. 
The reason is I paused painting for 20 years. I cannot sell my art, because I am still learning.

I may lack experience and technique, but in some regards, I feel like I know what I have to do. And this is the most empowering and vitalizing thing I ever experienced. I am alive now.
