If you can't find it, look for it.

If you can't hear it, keep listening.

If you don't want to follow your heart, find the willingness.

I found my inner child by following my heart.

I followed my heart and did a pro bono film project for a high tech company. They just contacted me and told me they want to PAY me for my pro bono services, and HIRE me to do a larger, more in depth project. This is a MAJOR opportunity for me!

And all because I followed my heart - I love the process of film making .. I'm not in it for the money or for fame. I just love doing it. I took a risk and did a project for them for free. It challenged me significantly (fighting off the negative internal voices inside, struggling to behave appropriately, and to believe in my abilities).

I hope this inspires someone here.

Congrats!! Keep following your heart!


I see recovery as a lifelong journey rather than a final destination, a journey, though, which can have many successes along the way.

This is a wonderful accomplishment and worthy of praise. The fact that you quieted the "negative internal voices" in lieu of more truthful, positive inclinations is inspiring to say the least. As you continue to fight the good fight, to thrive instead of merely survive, and create the destiny for yourself that you deserve I will both cheer for and learn from you!
