I loved this quote the minute I saw it. Its so right. When I was teaching for a year I was just teaching and not really enjoying what I did. Yeah of course it felt great to receive the pay check but apart from that there was no thrill. No offense to all the teachers out there who do a tremendous job of it, you guys are the people who make ordinary beings like me
However to me creativity is what I live for. I always knew I wanted to take up art right from the days when I drew with crayons. What aspect of art or creativity I would take up as a career just fell into place by itself. So to me HAPPINESS is this. I am living my own dream. Designing and creating gorgeous footwear that I love.
How do I get the designs I make is still a mystery to me as well. It just happens in a split second where I just pair up a few materials and I just know how the completed pair would look. However that moment is sheer happiness. Each new design from start to finish is such a thrill. In the end clicking snaps of my own creations and looking at them on my desktop day after day is happiness personified!
