‘And, when you want something…

…ALL the Universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.‘ – Paul Coelho

Recently, I finished reading ‘The Alchemist’ by Paul Coelho for the first time. The backbone of the story made me feel a lot calmer about Life – especially the above quote. I have always been more creative than academic but never had the courage to TRY and make anything of it. I think I even did my best to suppress the creative side of me. Until two years ago. I just remember having this need to draw e.v.e.r.y single day after going through something which got me feeling pretty *bleurgh*. And every time since then, when I’ve thought ‘what on earth am I doing trying to make a living out of this?!’, encouragement enters my life in the form of words or actions from family/friends/strangers and new artistic opportunities. I sincerely believe that the dream which keeps coming back is your destiny – and for me this is it; unleashing the creativity I kept locked away for so long into the world. All I had to do was try. X
