To my Fellow Amateurs: Fight Your Way Through.

There is a gap between what we dream of doing and what we are doing.

It’s going to take time and a lot of hard work to bridge those two things. We love what we do, but as a friend reminded me recently, we can’t schedule creativity. It comes when it wants to and we piece it together with equal parts love, sweat, tears and that magical electricity we pass around to each other called passion.

I have read this before, but saw it again today and thought to share it.

Don’t despair when success isn’t immediate.

It’s going to take time, and then at the right time and the right place after all of our hard work—things will come together.

You’ve just gotta fight your way through:
