Artistic Imaginings is a blog to organize and share my artwork, thoughts I have about different topics, and dreams for the future.

In order to live the best life possible and to accomplish goals and aspirations, it’s important to outline visions. For me, journaling and blogging are the perfect way to do just that. After all, without writing down my thoughts, I don’t think I could get anything done.

Even though much of my life and wisdom is still to come, what I’ve learned from the years I’ve lived and the inspirational people I’ve met is to make the most of the years one has. The best way to do that is to live through whatever one is most passionate about. My blog is about that… passion!

    It’s all about priorities, isn’t it! Not just to do with our own aspirations, but also how much time we spend on our relationships and our contributions/responsibilities as citizens. A tricky balance at times! I think our society is finally learning that there’s more to life than just making money, too … =D

      Definitely! It can be confusing, too, to try and decide about careers, especially with the economy, but I do get tired about people talking about money all the time. It never makes anyone really happy… 🙂
