Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
from the Stanford University commencement by Steve Jobs June 12, 2005
Wow ..... sometimes I stumble upon some of the most profound statements, statements that truly touch my heart.
I always wanted to do this. I always wanted to create - and now, here I am - creating and yes I am humble with my creations - I also feel good about what I have to offer. Wasn't always that way tho. I used to listen to others, who had no clue as to what I was trying to do, share, offer. And because I listened to the others .... I stopped doing what is my passion - my art - my creations. Till just recent -- I found my voice and my will.
