Wise words! I have been conditioned by my parents to work, work, work. You have to be productive through a paycheck and if you can’t hack it — stick it through.
As I’ve gotten older — I realize that this isn’t necessary in order to feel successful.
I feel quite fulfilled doing what I want to do which usually doesn’t keep my bank account happy — but it keeps me content.
I just have to figure out — how to support myself while I write with pleasure.
