Fan the Flames
There are always those who want to put out your fire.
You may be one of them.
Throw Water On the Fire
Stop all such activity right now. Fling any and all doubts, excuses, rationalizations, and other such junk (new or used) into the blaze.
Fan the flames.
Now do your work, with your mind and heart ignited by that fiery illumination.
It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. ……….~ E.E. Cummings To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight and never stop fighting. ……….~ E.E. Cummings
