I think that this is a really strong quote and I really appreciated the fact that I came across it on FaceBook. This has really benefited me especially at this point in my life where I am striving to be a working artist and set up my own business selling my art and growing my blog. I know that some of the decisions I have made and the decisions that I want to make are going to cause some people to be concerned or try to prevent me from doing what I want and know that I should be doing. Reading this quote has reminded me that first I need to believe in myself and do what I know I need to do to get there and if I start believing in myself, everyone else around me will and realize that I am a working artist and that I am striving to be better for my blog and business.
I want to encourage you all to follow your dreams. I have a dream but it took me years to act on it because I was afraid of jumping over the hurdles and letting people lead me astray. But not anymore. If I don’t believe in myself, how are the people around me supposed to believe in me.
