Watching this made me feel so much better about my situation. At 42, I have just recently found my calling. I started doing screenprinting about 4 months ago when I lost my miserable, full-time job. I absolutely love it! Although I don't really make an income from it (yet, haha) I don't think I could ever go back to the 9 to 5 drudgery. I have always been interested in art but could never find the right medium for me. I love sculpting, as well, but what I do now is so much fun! I love the whole process...from creating a design, I find joy in every step right up to the finished product. As Rebecca says in this video, it's just an amazing feeling to hold something in your hands. I suppose I am still in the struggling part but even that, I love. I can look at something and proudly think to myself, "I made this! This started as nothing but an idea and became a real thing because of me!" And it just reinforces that feeling when someone else looks at my work and tells me they like it. I've always lived with the philosophy that I don't need validation from others to know I am worthy and be happy but when you get that without seeking it out, it's a pretty sweet reward in and of itself.
