I tend to fall in love with something and then turn the thing into work.
But it’s important to love what you do.
I start doing for the wrong reasons. And then my passions stop being enjoyable.
For me, I write not for the sake of writing but because I love the creative process. So even if I never make it as a writer, I’ll still spend my life working away on a story or twenty thousand.
Same goes for blogging. Every time I think about my passions, I realize I’ve stuck with them because I don’t need external rewards to motivate me to keep going.
It’s enough that I enjoy creating characters, sharing stories, visiting worlds.
I hope I get to do what I love for the rest of my life.
At the very least, I know what I don’t love. I try to avoid the stuff I despise as much as possible.
I’ve been thinking about how I’ll make money doing what I love, how I’ll make a living.
A part of me believes if you work hard and you do what you’re doing out of love, you can’t really go wrong.
Life’s too short, but it’s also too long if you don’t enjoy your time on earth.
Don’t be too hard on yourself. You’re going to make mistakes just like everybody else. That’s okay. You’re going to be all right.
Every storm ends. Every moment passes. Cherish what you have. Remember to laugh. Don’t forget to love. Keep going even when you think you can’t. Good luck. Believe in yourself and your abilities. It’s the least you can do.
