At the beginning of the New Year I made a a few lofty goals/resolutions. One was to take Kelly Rae Robert's online class Flying Lessons: Tips +Tricks To Help Your Creative Business Soar. A few weeks ago I got an email saying this was the last time she would offer the ecourse, thought about it for half a second, and decided it was one resolution I really wanted complete. It just started this past Sunday and I'm on board. I have a creative business right? I have a blog, an Etsy shop, and a workspace to call my own...not a bad start but I lack goals and have so many fears about possible failure and success that I rarely get anything off the ground.
Today, driving home from the day job I noticed a hitchhiker on my wiperblade. Kept thinking at each stop I made that he would take his leap, but he didn't. Instead he stuck with me all the way. Once home, I snapped a quick pic and left him him peace.
I took a few minutes to read online about grasshopper symbolism and found this interesting bit of mythology:
green grasshoppers indicate fresh starts (new beginnings), as well as the concepts of youth, rejuvination, sentimentality, nature, adventure, growth and health.
