This weekend I watched a special on E about Katy Perry. Love her or hate her, she said the most fascinating quote, "You got to go on a journey to fulfill your dream."
Granted I paraphrased the quote a touch but the message is still the same. My friends, we are on a path to our dream. And each day we struggle to reach our goal. No matter what we are pursuing we often imagine the end result-be that publication, a finished art piece or etc. But the truth is-this moment, right here, leads us to our dream.
The tears, frustration and friendships that we form while pursuing our hearts desire is the journey. You can't have the end result without the journey.
There is something beautiful that awaits you. Your dream is going to help people. Keep going, keep climbing.
