I came upon the following quotes in The Artist's Way. They kind of say it all, don't you think?
"Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do to have what you want." Margaret Young
And then there is this:
"We are traditionally rather proud of ourselves for having slipped creative work in there between the domestic chores and obligations. I'm not sure we deserve such big A-pluses for that." Toni Morrison
Enjoy your weekend everyone.
