don't ever let anyone tell you you aren't good enough. It's a complete lie! you can do anything you set your mind to! Sure sometimes it will be hard and you may not always see the light, But press on! Do what you love! don't do things just to fit in, Stand out, be yourself! who cares if it's not cool to tap dance, or program computer software or write poetry. It doesn't matter what others think. Do what you love! if you want to be a writer be one. Who cares if you never make any money doing it. As long as you're happy, enjoying life. Money doesn't matter! It's just a piece of paper with some old guys face on it. All the time I see men in business suits driving to work to sit in a cubicle. Day after day, same routine schedule, never smiling. And I think "wow, They're missing it!" Success isn't measured by how many digits there are after that dollar sign. It's measured by how filled your soul is. How excited you are to wake up in the morning and start the new day. I witnessed an amazing example of this recently. Did any of you that watch the womens world cup soccer game notice that in the break before over time, The Japanese team huddled together and they were smiling! Excited to be there, to represent their country doing something they loved. Even though they had been down most of the game they carried on. didn't let it get them down. Those smiles are what won them the game. Even if they would have lost, they still would have won because they were out there to have fun! "Don't take things too seriously. Live Life and Laugh!" that's my motto. You can borrow it if you'd like. So Find something you love doing and do it! Follow your dreams!
