There is something to be said for encouragement. When someone offers you encouragement, it re-ignites a flame that could be wavering on the edge of being extinguished.
That small kick or push that one gives you, despite how insignificant it may seem, holds a great deal of weight. I wanted to thank a friend for his encouragement today (by linking to one of his posts) and to all those in the past that have offered words of encouragement.
I encourage you all to live your passions and follow your path.
