I’ll admit something to you from the start – I’m overwhelmed.  I have so much going on that some days I feel like a surfer on the top of a big wave – but a precarious one.  One wrong move and I’m falling hard and not sure how I’ll get back up.

Trying to stay on this wave, get ready for SURTEX, get art done for clients, get paperwork done for college, get ready for the last part of my move, deal with re-modeling surprises… and, keep up with this blog – is tricky!

As I was driving on Tuesday I was thinking, “What should I blog about?”  I knew I needed something but wasn’t sure what… then Michael Bublé came on the radio.  “I just haven’t met you yet” – a fun love song that makes me smile.  I remember the feeling of not having met “him” yet and now the happiness of planning our life together… but then my brain went into analogy land…

This love song is very similar to the journey of the professional artist.  You know what you want… you look, you work, you create, you try… and you are often frustrated and alone.  You just haven’t met your clients, your calling, your business mojo yet…

So today, I want you to listen to this song regardless of where you are on your journey.  Starting out or managing your dream business.  As the tile setter told us for weeks when we had no toilets in the house and wanted to know when the floor could go in so I didn’t have to go to the store to use the loo… “It’s a process.”

Finding love is a process.

Building a business is a process too.  Have the faith that Micheal does in this song that you will find what you are looking for…
