Where did @KarenSueStudios Go?

4Q4A9776.JPG Hi Friends,

I know it's been a hot minute since I posted a blog. 2019, has been a really busy year for me, and I decided to step away from Steemit for a little while, so I could focus on my business. As many of you know, I'm an artist, and this year, I decided to dedicate a lot of time to pursue my dreams.

If there is one big life lesson I learned this year, it would be "follow your dreams." I know it's cheesy, but it is totally true. Growing up, I was taught to live a "traditional" life. Go to school, get a job, rise up in your career, etc etc. Since the start of my Steemit journey, I really started to question my values and belief. Steemit showed me that there are so many alternative ways to live life. I even got to become a travel blogger all of 2018 and blog and meet Steemanians all around the world. It was GREAT! This really led me to start looking at life differently. Maybe I don't have to follow the "traditional" path. Maybe I can make my own path.

Fast forward, here we are 2019! So what have I done with my time away from Steemit? I'm proud to say I published 2 more coloring books this year on Amazon, "Mandala Daydream" and "Flora and Fauna." It has been incredibly fulfilling and I cannot believe I am living my dream as an artist.

I've got a couple more books that are in the works, and I cannot wait to share them with you soon.

I've really missed my Steemit community, and hope you are all well. I'll try to post more, so I can fill you in on all of the adventures of 2019!

    Traditions are good in the sense that they may be founded on eternal principles that can then be applied as needed. Variables can change. Therefore, traditions should sometimes be tweaked if needed lol. Karen, keep up the good work.

  • @mineopoly

    I really like this update. It shows that even though Steem slumps Steemians don't slump. What you said is totally right for me also. This community got me out of the thinking box and opened new avenues. I hope your books do well and I'm glad you can enjoy what you do.

  • @goldmatters

    Whoa!!!

    Miss you Karen!! <3

    Congrats on your books and your continued success. We have a LOT of Mene to catch up on !!

  • @ramengirl

    I missed you <3

  • @nathangibbssss

    That would be surely gonna be awesome!

  • @golden.future

    Hey ... @karensuestudios Nice to meet you. Where are you from?

  • @skramatters

    Congratulations on the colouring books. I flag basically everything over 25 dollars I see, especially if it has been promoted needlessly. Clearly you're unaware of the new dynamics on steem. I'll introduce you to the new reality here with my weak friendly flag to let it be known you will need to do much more than stop in to say hello and have a 50 dollar valued post.. Clearly even after 6 months away, you either have a helluva following, as there's likely not even 1000 active steemians here, or you bought all these votes. This is at the top of trending LMFAO!! If you're gonna hang around, know that things have e changed for the former "full timers" and this shit ain't gonna cut it, unless you're some special class of steem elite.. We shall see, this place is full of hypocrites and circle jerks..

    Nice post, welcome back to Steemit Karen. I think like you. You should or must follow your dreams. A friend's grandpa said before he died: In old age you won't regret the things you did but the things you didn't do.

    We all have only one life so trust your gut feeling. You can't do anything wrong. Either you do something right or you have an experience.

  • @shharafat

    I agree with you.Steemit show us so many alternative for living life.

  • @blackflame23

    That's awesome to hear! Currently doing the same of pursuing my dream as a music composer at school, and even if some parts of life seem rough financially, I know that I'm immensely happier knowing that I'm pursuing a dream.

  • @titan-c

    This is awesome. Your post is so motivating. Watching the examples of people finding a different way of living that the one we get educated into is so encouraging.

    Very cool! Yay, adult coloring books. So soothing. Best of fortune to you with all of your ongoing projects.

  • @whatamidoing

    Keep going! Glad you feel that way and that things are working out for you.

    Those coloring books look sick!!! I will try my best to pop out lots of kids to buy them for, and to get my own shit together enough to justify buying a coloring book for myself which I would also love to do ;-)

    For now I’ll share this with an adult friend who I’ve seen coloring in mandalas before

  • @jekhy
