After what feels like forever, I’ve been feeling marginally better today, and I decided that I would spend the whole day trying to gather my energy and get to a place healthy enough for me to start writing for myself again.
That reminds me; I got news of a project that I have been working on for a really long time and things are looking really good from where I am at right now. It feels like all the patience and all the waiting is finally about to come to an end and I just hope that the result of it is as good as I expected it to be, in the first place. I have decided to talk about it only when it has been officially finalized, but I can tell you that this is something huge and it means the world to me.
Also, I would like to remind you all, today, that if you ever feel like your work isn’t important enough, always remember that there is at least one person out there who religiously follows your work and looks up to you. Maybe one person isn’t nearly as much reach as you deserve, but that one person is hope. They are hope that you are going somewhere, even if not at the pace you would’ve wanted. Your work is, first and foremost, for you. So, always remind yourself why you’re doing this and why you should continue to do so.
If you’re wondering, today, why you should continue to believe in yourself and your passion for what you do, remind yourselves the reason you began doing it in the first place and the reason you decided to take it all a step further. What motivates you? And why do you think it isn’t worth it anymore? Remind yourselves of all the reasons you choose to do something you love, and you’ll eventually find a reason to stick to it even if you don’t see your progress.
We’ve all still got a really long way to go, no matter how far we get. I think it’s important for us to keep an open mind about the way we see the world around us and how we let it affect what we do. It takes less than a moment to drop everything you love and decide that you no longer want it just because you were told that it serves you no purpose. But the things you love don’t have to serve a purpose– they simply exist for your love of them. Remind yourself that the next time you find yourself looking for reasons to stick to what you love.
I hope you do find your reason and the courage to stick around to the things that motivate you. The world outside can be pretty snarky and mean about the things you love, simply because they don’t like seeing others thrive. How you help yourself rise above that remains to be seen.
Rise to the challenge against all odds. Xx
