The Courage to Follow It
Everyone has talent. What's rare is the courage to follow it to the dark places where it leads ~ Erica Jong
Your talent, your dream journey may lead you to some very dark places. It's not very fun to share your dream journey with close family and friends, only to have them try to talk you out of it. Sometimes honing a talent can mean hours of sacrifice away from family and friends to devote to your craft. There are probably a million other "dark places" I can't even mention.
To me, going through all of that is worth the reward in the end. Dream journeys take time away from family and friends, but usually the reward in the end is more time to spend with them. And even though they can try to talk you out it, it's usually just because they love you and don't want to see you get hurt.
Hone your talent, follow your dream, the dark places will go away.
