Whilst I continue to enjoy painting animal portraits and taking commissions, I have spent the last 6 months filling my days with self-development. I think it is important to invest time in yourself and develop your skills and knowledge as much as you possibly can. Life is about learning, not matter how you look at it. It doesn’t necessarily mean you have to go out there and get a Masters – if you can afford it and can do it – that’s something to be proud of for sure – however, if you can’t it’s no less achievement to improve YOU by reading books, looking at magazines, watching tutorials on Youtube, etc. It’s how I got to where I am right now! Courses and workshops are widely available, whether they be online or at your local community centre, signing up for these can provide a great foundation to self-development.
On New Years Eve 2018 at 11.50pm, I signed up for an online course. I literally thought this is for ‘ME’ as it popped up on my news feed on Facebook. The course probably went out to thousands but at that moment, I believed the Higher Power was telling me something. So, I went with my gut feeling and thought “That’s it, this New Year’s Resolution is SELF-DEVELOPMENT” ( I didn’t have one until that point) Since then, I have completed 3 courses and have already signed up for 2 more which will help me progress even further with self-development and my business.
As I was learning about the subject of therapeutic art I realized one thing – that I was living proof that this stuff actually works and that I could help others realize this too. I was basically adding the cement to my creative brick wall. Filling in the gaps with the knowledge and science behind all the practical blocks I had already built. After this ‘light-bulb’ moment I spent hours of time researching more and more, learning more and more. It’s been wonderful to see my own creative reflection and being able to visualize the next part of my Creations by Fina journey. So, with my HAPPY – INSPIRING self (not always, as I am Human and I do have bad days, sometimes really bad days), I am really looking forward to this journey, being able to help my clients invest in their own personal development using my support and NEW knowledge as a Therapeutic Art & Happiness Life Coach will bring much happiness into my own life too.
