If you want to become something. If you want to do something with your life other than just exist. If you want to be creative. If you want to be successful. You will be tested.
G-d/the universe/fate/life will test you to see how determined you are to be want you want to be. Life will throw you curve balls to test you resolve. Obsticals will be put in your path to block your progress. Shit will happen.
All of these designed to test you. To make you into the person you want to become.
It has always been thus.
And it always will be.
And you have two simple choices:
Either suck it up, accept it and deal with it.
Or abandon your dreams.
The balls in your darling.
Everyone you admire and respect whose life and or work inspires you to better yourself, EVERY SINGLE ONE has been through what your going through.
The question is and always has been thus: How badly do you want it?
Good night my brothers and sisters. And spare a thought/prayer for our brothers and sisters in Egypt and everywhere in the middle east.
