Do what you love. Not because you are the best at it. Not because someone likes it. Do what you love. But don’t do it ‘Because’. Let your love for it be the motivation. Do it for your passion. They may flatter you, they may criticize you, they may admire you, they might call you crazy ! Don’t let anything keep you away from your doing what you love. It may be singing in the shower, smearing the floor with paints rather than the canvas, writing with imperfect grammar, dancing with two left feet or anything that gives you joy 🙂 Live your dreams, discover your calling and chase your passion. Pour your heart and soul into doing the things you love. And you will not be the same person when you look back much later. It brings happiness and satisfaction, unbound.
I am not a painter, I paint nonetheless. I have long lost memories of my grammar lessons and figures of speech, I write despite. Because it is only by doing what I love, I get better at it. Fear of failure or criticisms should not hold you back, live your dreams !
