Why You should never give up...

I found this while blog hopping the other day.  So TRUE!! 
 I really could have done with this a few years ago! 
 I've been on such a LONG and HARD creative journey and
 I only feel now that there is a flicker of light at the end of the
 tunnel for all my efforts - but I have NEVER given up - 
I have cried, I have sulked, but I have picked myself up off
 the floor each and every time and just kept trudging along,
 because, luckily for me I was born tenacious.  

Nothing in this world comes easy, yet I am so surprised to 
hear so many people say 
"Yes, I tried that, but I was no good at it" 
- there are very few prodigy's in this world, the rest of us only 
get to where we get by not giving up, so I hope that this will 
encourage you on your creative journey today.

Just create.  And create.  And create. 
 And the best class you can ever take is your own. 
 It's called PRACTICE.  And ultimately it makes perfect! 

Still trying to close the gap...

This is so very true, and we often go along thinking that we are the only ones feeling like this. Nice to know we are not alone! Tx
