What is the last time you Jumped, tried something new or took a risk?
"I believe that we only learn and grow once we are outside of our comfort zones. I have recently jumped into the wily world of parenting. While on maternity leave, I began creating digital art and submitted a piece to a gallery show. I am still learning so much about both parenting and creating art but I did learn this: both parents and artists always feel like they are guessing; they are always questioning if they are good enough at it; they are doing it anyway."
