I found this quote last night on Instagram and it was perfect for a thought Thursday post. Over the last few years I have really been noticing some changes in myself as I have been working more on my writing and appreciating other expressions of art in a deeper way. I have also even been hitting the stage and participating in a few small community productions. I must admit that the last few years have been an amazing exploration of myself as an individual as I continued to immerse myself into art. I have learned more about my strengths, weaknesses, and my talents, learning about what drives me and more about the things in life that ignite my creativity and my writing. By being able to find myself through art I have noticed some of my worse heartbreaks has forced me to write some of my most amazing poems, and help me develop characters on stage. There is often passion where there is pain, because the two are so closely related to our emotions and our thought process. This is not just for artist but for any individual that is focused on pursuing their passion.
