When a friend tagged me on an Instagram post and suggested I should set up a stall at the upcoming Afrobeats Festival I almost dismissed the idea. I had a house move looming on the horizon and I wasn’t sure I would be ready for the festival.
Getting ready for the day was frantic but we pulled it off and now I’m set up to pop up anywhere!
I enjoyed the atmosphere although I needed a couple of days afterwards to recover from all the excitement. It was a treat dancing to Afro music, many of which were from my heritage. There was a lot of interest in my artwork and it was thrilling to sell a few large and smaller prints.
I learned that we never feel ready for some challenges but that shouldn’t deter us anyway. We are usually more capable than we believe.
