And we get to a point where we reflect on what’s really important in our lives
What we want from life, what we are willing to accept, and aren’t, and where we want to go, and what we’re willing to do to get it.
These questions don’t come lightly but damn are they worth it.
And they will be worth putting every ounce of your being into once you start getting a taste of those goals coming through. If you’re passion is anything like mine, you aren’t going to let anything stand in your way.
Because I’m telling you it’s not an easy road, or a short road, but it’s worth it.
Seeing my dreams starting to come true, slowly, once piece of the puzzle at a time, has brought me to tears. Losing things along the way so better things can come together, has been a bittersweet blessing I wouldn’t trade for anything.
The strength I’m finding inside me to persevere I never thought I had it in me, and I’ve had some pretty hard tests along the way where I thought my strength was maxed. But guess what? Somehow, I’ve tapped deeper, and found even more!
What an amazing thing! And I know everyone has that in them….if they want it bad enough. But you have to want it, with every pore in your being, every ounce in your heart, every fiber of your thought. It must drive you and pull you towards it whether you want to or not.
“Writing is the only thing when I’m doing it, I don’t feel like I should be doing anything else.” I heard that phrase and something clicked. What a wonderfully simple way to put it, and it’s so true. If when you’re doing your passion, you are so immersed and so happy, and so content and fulfilled, you need to make that happen. You need to find a way to make a career for yourself out of that. You will succeed. Just have faith.
