I have my days. Some days I feel my time is coming (where my work will be recognized on a larger platform), and other days I sit and ponder why am I even doing this. Some days I am unbelievably uninspired. Most days I believe that every thing is already written and that what ever I become I am currently walking in that path. I've learned something along the way though - and that's to forever remain humble despite any accolades or praise because there is a lesson in everything. A old friend once told me to never feel as if something is owed to me or that I deserve something no matter how talented I am told or may think I am.
I don't particularly think that I am too good for anything because I feel I am always put in a position to learn something. But there's something about ego that can destroy unseen opportunities. Just when you think no one is paying attention...everyone is paying attention. There is always at least one person observing you and you could never know who that person is, who they know, or what they could make happen for you. I'm huge on energy. I'm the type of person where if I know my energy is f*cked up, I'll keep to myself and stay low until it passes because I know what it's like to feel that energy from other people and I don't like it. I think it's of the utmost importance to put forth good energy and vibes. I know it can be difficult sometimes depending on the day or a current circumstance because after all...we are mere humans - but people pay attention to that sort of thing so it's good to be mindful.
In working on your passion it's important to repel negative energy as much as possible. I swear it's one of the most draining things in life but I notice that when you see positivity in all things life just becomes easier. In being a positive force you affect people around you, and they too have no choice but to follow in your footsteps...if they want to remain in your company that is.
I say this to say...it's not easy living a creative life and I know that it's not easy for those who aren't creatives, but if you have a passion, don't let life take that from you. Don't let it take over your time to the point that you have no time for it. Make time. It's the hope you have, it's the thing your heart truly beats for, it sustains your soul. It's the thing that you'd do regardless if you could get paid for it or not...what you rise thinking about and the last thing on your mind before you sleep. I may or may not know you dear reader, but there is one person who cares. Keep going.
