    One Opportunity Can Open Many Doors

    Imagine a world where you developed the confidence and positive mindset that you CAN achieve ANYTHING you put your mind to, and just give it a try and go do it!
    Don’t fear that your weakness or negative mindset will take over.
    You may be completely shocked by the outcomes, but here’s the truth:
    You’ve had this positive mindset and confidence in you ALL along.

    Trust me when I say this:
    I NEVER thought I’d see the day where I would finish this extremely challenging 40in.x 60in. commission painting of a customer’s NYC apartment view.
    I NEVER even thought I’d get opportunities THIS huge, in regards to being a small art business owner;
    However, this opportunity and the progression of this painting throughout almost an entire year of so many hours and days of hard work, the time dedicated, and the skills obtained,
    has finally raised the high hopes for me to know in my heart, that I’ve needed all along.
    It helped me feel that I really have been capable ALL along, to step outside of my comfort zone by doing this sort of challenge, and I can accomplish so much more, all while chasing my dreams as a creative and disabled artist.

    This IS why I never give up. It is because of these accomplishments that may “appear” so small in my eyes, but continue to open many others other bigger doors in my artistic journey.

    This city painting may just be the one commission that would help make my whole “tiny”, not so “well-known” art business to truly thrive, and finally allow my artwork to reach and bring joy to many more individuals, as I have always wanted it to.

    This should be an example for you all to NEVER give up, and to not ever fear to step outside of your own comfort zone. This should be an inspiration for you all to never stop holding on to what you hope, dream, and live for.

    I was once there;
    before this painting commission, I doubted myself in more ways than any 27 year old should.
    I am now recently 28 years old, and I am starting to finally try and refuse allowing myself to feel any sort of doubt or let my negative mindset control me from any individuals’ negative words or judgements.

    The positive and optimistic “Alexandra” …IS out there, and despite her letdowns, and her hardships, along with anyone who has ever doubted her or continues to doubt her,
    She is finding the strong woman she has always had inside of her this entire time;
    more than EVER before.

    Each day is a new beginning, and a chance for new positive opportunities to arise.

    It is important to keep in mind that when one door closes, another BIG one opens…
    And those “doors” for opportunities will ALWAYS be there, and will never stop coming or opening.

    Never stop chasing your dreams;
    And if anyone tries to doubt you, know in your heart that you have had the strength and confidence in you all along to believe in yourself to fulfill your dreams.
    You have always had it in you for you to be able to develop the skills to see past the ones who doubt you, and continue to thrive and truly be who and where you have always wanted to be.

    Always remember:
    One opportunity can and WILL open many other doors for you if you continue to never give up on chasing your truest dreams.

    • Alex your letter is truly amazing! We should never give up on our goals, and always remember it is never too late to chase our dreams. If you ever feel like you’re stuck, remember that it takes a lot of courage to always push forward and not back down. The same strength it takes to strive for something new, is the same strength it takes to stay true to who you are—to never give up on your dreams.

    • Allie,

      Your letter is amazing. As is that incredible painting you have done. I have something in mind for you to paint if you are willing. I am sure that after a lot of hard work that you need a little break from something that big.

      Whenever you are ready let me know and I will give you more info. I would love a painting done of a photo I took a few years ago. It should be a lot less involved than this painting but its a really cool image and background.

      The confidence I am sure you’re feeling after completing this is awesome. I am so proud of that painting and it is absolutely amazing. The talent required for that is something that I am proud of. I get to say I know an artist!

      Thanks for sharing your amazing talent with all of us!

    • Great letter, Alexandra. It seems like a lot of us have a lot of doubt that keeps us from seeing the greatness we have within. I’m glad you’re starting to overcome the negative mindset and doubt that you felt. It’s a hard road to drive, but with practice, the road gets smoother for us.
      Your paintings are amazing btw! You got mad talent!

        • You’re welcome!! I’m glad it meant a lot to you. I appreciate the kind comment. I just share what I think could help others (like what you and others do here on The Unsealed). I’m happy I found this site and Lauren too!!! I still can’t believe I know someone who used to be a sportscaster! How wild is that?!? I agree with you, this is an amazing platform.
