What made me start a Jewelry making business?

I never knew that I'd grow up to be a full-time jewelry maker. 

I knew I was ambitious...and creative, and full of spunk in my younger days.  I always wondered how and where I would end up when I finally grew up.  I pictured myself excelling in life at something, but I had no idea what.  One day, I woke up and realized that I wanted to create.  Create what?  I couldn't draw...I couldn't cook...I had no musical talent....So, I searched deep in my innovative brain...and I remembered how I loved to make brightly colored bracelets and necklaces growing up.  Boom - I knew I'd stumbled upon something great.  Wait til I spread the news - I was gonna be a full time jewelry maker!



But....now what???  What does a full time jewelry maker even do?  Could I really spend 8 hours of my day making necklaces, earrings and bracelets?  There is no way that I could sustain something like this long-term, right?  
How wrong I was to think that.  I still laugh at myself for second-guessing what my heart and mind knew I could do.  Are there days I'm on the struggle bus?  For sure.  Do I sometimes think that every creative bone in my body is broken and I can't possibly think of anything else to make?  Totally.  But guess what?  I prevail.  I win every time.  I create.  I'm innovative.  I'm my own boss.  I wear the pants.  I answer to no one but me.  My creations are my heart, my soul and my mind.  Each piece unique, like I am.  Each and every item made, tells its own story.  
Is it hard to be a jewelry maker?  Absolutely.  It is worth it?  I can't image anything better.
