When you’re a creative person (or a person who strives to be creative) there are times when you feel exceptionally vulnerable about your state of being. Questions like “What Am I Doing With My Life?”, “Am I Good Enough?” or “Should I Just Give Up And Get A Temp Job?” can plague you night after night and drain your soul even though you already know the answer before you even ask the question.
Yes, you are doing exactly what you should be doing.
But knowing that is different than believing in it, and sometimes you just need to hear about giving into your passions from one of your personal heroes, like Ray Bradbury for instance, who is so unapologetic in his own self-belief that when you hear him muse on life and love, you are replenished with fervor to renew your exploration into art, or writing, or whatever it is that brings you a sense of fulfillment in life.
And really, isn’t that all that we truly need? Someone to say it’s okay to be who we are.
I know I do.
