When I attended High School My English Teacher asked everyone what would we like to be when we grow up and I said a poet. She responded that poets does not make very much money. So at fourteen I did not think my writing was good enough. My inspiration to write came from a teacher when I was twelve who took a poem that I wrote in class and kept it for herself. I remember her because she loved my poem and kept it for herself. So as Inspiration I try to remember my seventh grade teacher to continue on a passion and journey that I gave up on for years. As a result my life took. A whole turn in a direction that could have been prevented If this teacher could have inspired me rather than criticism of a natural Talent that was predestined by God! So at thirty one I know believe in my ability to write through Divine courtship and Life Lessons. I love worldly Leaders who inspire me to do better and I encourage Greatness for our Youth. Stay Educated and Always Believe in your appointed Dreams No Matter What others say. Always Be a Bigger person and value your Dreams!
I used to write poems as a kid too. I had to teacher who called me to read my poem in front of the class. That made me feel so good and impressed on me the power of words. On the other hand in third call we did an aptitude test and the teacher told me I was good with my hands and would make a good factory worker! I wonder why she didn't tell me, I would be a good surgeon, or sculptor? You will always find the jerks, that have no business teaching children. We have to champion our children's dreams, so that when they get a blow for a bad teacher they will already be secure in their talents!
I agree! It is difficult to keep from becoming disheartened when things don't come easy and people doubt your abilities. But staying true to your heart and pursuing your dreams is worth it in my opinion. If you don't try, you will not succeed. And who wants to go through life wondering "what if...?" I believe we are given passions for a reason, and what we love most may be part of our calling.
