A Different Kind of Voice

I think most people are more in need of encouragement than discouragement. There are always plenty of voices around us and in our heads telling us why we can't do things, how bad the odds are, what obstacles we'll face. The world is full of negativity. There is no shortage of people telling us not to try. 

I want to be a different kind of voice--one that empowers and inspires. It's not that I think everyone can make a living from their art or their childhood ambitions if they just go for them. But I think everyone should pursue what excites them in some way, large or small. I think they will be better for it. And so will the world.
