"Those individuals who serve as our mentors in our personal and professional affairs help us grow by providing us with the information that allows us to carve our own path. Even when we desperately want answers handed to us, a good mentor will recognize that we absorb so much more from a response that inspires us to search for knowledge in our time and in our own way. They provide us with the curiosity-inspiring questions that lead us on a veritable treasure hunt of wisdom and experience that can last as long as our association continues. Similarly, they serve as role models we can approach for guidance and support when we are unsure where we should go next. Your mentor will help you maintain a sense of optimism today by reassuring you that you are on the right path."
My horoscope today was about mentors. As I am focused, once again on my personal artistic path, it was appropriate that I should receive this in my inbox.
If you have ever considered a mentor, I highly recommend it. Someone that has your personal vision in mind, is a true asset. I found my mentor a couple of years ago. He has become a friend. One that knows that my life journey has been complicated at times, but he is patient. He realizes that I will never be far away from my art. I wrote about it here.
Michael Newberry, is a gifted and generous artist. I suggest that you take a tour of his site. It is a pleasure. His mentor program is discussed here and here.
