I really didn’t feel like writing today. Hey, I’m being honest. But I remembered the fact that I want to stay committed to this venture. If I stop now I may not get started up again for quite some time. I’m still trying to balance everyday life with my writing. Such a task is no small feat.
On those days where I’m in serious danger of overdrawing my account trying to pay bills, I think, “Why didn’t I just go to law school?” It’d be so much easier and I wouldn’t be a literal ‘starving artist.’ Then I remind myself that anything worth having comes with a price. There will be sacrifices. I cherish my gift from God. I’ll continue to nourish it even at the expense of my poor bank account.
I said all that to say you should never give up on your writing… or any dream for that matter. Heed God’s call and pursue your purpose.
