“Every artist was at one point, an amateur.”
Now, take a minute to actually absorb this. Every public figure, every rock star and pop singer, every actor and actress, every painter, every writer… In the beginning, they too, were amateurs. We’re all amateurs!! We’re finding our passion and running with it, which eventually leads to success, and gives us the chance to say “I’m no longer an amateur.” But if you don’t follow the passion that drives you; if you give up because it’s too difficult and the competition is fierce, you’ll always be an amateur. So, for today, acknowledge that you were once an amateur, think of how you can help someone out of amateur status, and relish the fact that you are no longer. Be grateful for all that you’ve accomplished. Be appreciative of all that you’ve obtained whether it be mental or material. And just be. Be you, doing what you love to do. Someone (or several people) out there love your work. Keep it coming!!
Peace, Love and Happiness, Always!
