This Is Your Ticket
Take that first step. Take the next one, and the one after that. It might be a very long journey. There might be long convoluted detours. You might be delayed. You might pick up travel companions along the way, and you might lose some. You might get weary. You might lose faith in even the existence of that glorious destination. Try anyway.
This is a ticket that says, Yes, you have the right to try for that very hard, very beautiful thing that you have always longed for.
This ticket says your dreams are worth the sacrifice, the hard work, the road less traveled.
Sorry for the dark picture. But in a way, the dark picture is fitting. This ticket was drawn during the middle of the night, because I had to. And the photo was taken in the middle of a thunderstorm, because when the sun was shining, I forgot about what I wanted to do.
Well there's something else for you. Sometimes we need those storms, those shadowed moments, to remember what it is that fills us with light.
So, like I said, you have permission to follow your dreams.
This is your ticket.
