In whatever you choose to do with your life, know that the perception of those around you is secondary, your intuition, that gentle voice from within is most important. Rest in your heart's call, remembering too that as long as you are aware that you are becoming a better person, and as long as your soul is nurtured, it doesn't matter what anyone says. It is when one is deprived of the freedom of choice that he retaliates against the world and himself. When you cultivate your soul, you cultivate not only yourself but the world around you. When you follow your joy you can only cause more joy. Like a pebble that sends that ripple of love and hope and inspiration through creative expression and passion. Don't ever deprive yourself of your own destiny. Claim it! Only you know what is right for you, so heed that voice inside. Your soul is a child. You cannot put a child in a cage. That child must run free in the paradise of the heart, even if it takes some risks. Only risk can bridge a dreamer to his dream. ~ J.C.
