There is a searching that happens in any art form; be it martial arts, dance, photography, writing, playing, or any other art form you choose. A seeking of connecting on a deep, emotional, and spiritual level. It happens slowly, unsuspecting. Then one day, it catches you and makes you smile when you realize this searching is what’s given the “talent” to your art.
It is also the thing that could frustrate the hell out of you, keep you up late at all hours, and drive you mad.
Whatever you find in your search, wherever it leads you, enjoy it. Live it and love it fully. Even the darker parts, learn to ride through those. Because those, too, are a beautiful and necessary part of life. It’s what helps us to appreciate the fluffy, bunny parts 🙂
