“Peril, loneliness, an uncertain future, are not oppressive evils, so long as the frame is healthy and the faculties are employed; so long, especially, as Liberty lends us her wings, and Hope guides us by her star.” -Charlotte Brontë
As a writer, this quote means that there is always a way to do what you love. No matter how bad your circumstances are, you can always find a way to do the things you love. If something is your true calling, God will open the doors for you to continue following that calling. It won’t always be easy. Life will sometimes weigh heavy on you, and you just have to decide whether or not you feel like pushing through the obstacles and pursuing your dreams.
I promise that if you let Hope and Faith guide you in your calling, you will find fulfillment. It may not be the kind of achievement that touches others and changes their lives right away. There is NO SUCH THING as an overnight success. Not really, anyway. The things that appear to be an overnight success are usually the result of a lifetime of practice and hard work finally paying off.
Take pleasure in the hard work, enjoy the practice. That, in itself, is a beautiful sort of success. Anything else is just a bonus.
