If you’re into art in all forms I’d recommend checking out the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibition while you’re in Seattle. The artist, Dale Chihuly, is a Washington native and has created more than a dozen well-known series of works and exhibitions around the world. My favorite part of the exhibition was when @witandfolly and I got a glimpse of the Seattle Space Needle through the glass.
🔐 Tickets are $26 USD, but cheaper for kids and seniors. There is also a cafe within the property (Collections Cafe). It is a good spot to relax and have a nice lunch while enjoying the creative decor. #AydaJuneinSeattle

I created this piece, 'Twilight Garden' 2.5 years ago and I still am super proud of it. I don't often have the energy to make such an elaborate piece, but when I finally do again, I'm hoping it's at least half as good as this lovely. No shame in loving your work ❤ I'm trying to get better at celebrating my accomplishments. What are you proud of recently?

In the end, she became more than what she expected. She became the journey, and like all journeys, she did not end, she just simply changed directions and kept going ♥️🧡💛 #followAmetoIndia | Words by @rmdrk 📸: @dan.ng_
Current studio sitch is THIS BEAUTY! It's the height of me and my current fave thing is to sit and look at it and pretend I'm a mermaid because there are some serious Coral reef, underwater, mermaid lagoon vibes going on! What do you see so far in this work in progress? 🧜

Looking back, I was always entrepreneurial.
I was the kid with the lemonade stand.
I started a craft camp as a middle schooler.
And every J.O.B. (just over broke), I had after college left me unfulfilled -- even when offered promotions and more money.
Can you relate?
If you have the entrepreneurial itch or have a little voice in your head telling you you are meant to do more, STOP ignoring it.
Yes, starting a side hustle can be scaring.
Yes, people might think you're crazy.
But you aren't going to be happy if you settle for punching in and punching out at a 9 to 5.
If you've been thinking about making the leap into entrepreneurship but something is holding you back, share it with me below.
“Trust me when I say — the greatest thing you will ever do for yourself is to simply listen to what you actually want from life. Drown out the guidelines, the advice, the 'shoulds.' Drown out all of the opinions, all of the ways in which others are telling you how to live, and love, and exist in this world. It won’t be easy, it never is; because this is what they don’t tell you — finding your own version of happiness isn’t this comfortable, miraculous thing. It can get confusing, it will be hard. It’s difficult to be the person who does things differently, who chooses to walk away from from a life, or a love, or a hope that they once wanted. It is never easy to be the person who changes.
But it's the greatest gift you will ever give yourself. It will push you towards figuring out what your own personal version of happiness looks like; and when you grow on your own terms, when you figure out what actually matters to you, what actually ignites your heart, what actually drives you to love yourself more — you live on your own terms. You become the person you have always wanted to be, rather than the person you were always told to be, and that is beautiful. Because when it comes down to it — life is about finding a happiness that works for you.
So choose that happiness. Choose the kind of love that feels right, the kind of love that makes you understand why it didn’t work out with anyone else. Choose the kind of life that makes you so damn happy you kept fighting for the things you wanted, for the way in which your heart asked you to believe in more. Choose yourself, unapologetically and without guilt — the way you choose others. Show up for yourself. Give yourself permission to hope, to care, to trust in the things you deeply crave from life. Choose letting go. Choose forgiveness, choose to turn your losses into lessons. Choose to move forward, into the kind of story that fulfills you, into the kind of person that holds your heart just as carefully as you hold theirs, into the kind of happiness that exists because you chose to fight for it, and never stop fighting for it.” - @rainbowsalt
