accept yourself

"You can deny your nature
only up to a point;
otherwise
even your feelings for God
melt away.
Knowing God demands
self-denial,
not self-destruction."

- Juris Rubenis

Thank you for this too. Even with all the affirmation I've been receiving the last few months, I still fight the inner voices that tell me it's wrong to become an artist. I guess I'm still working on getting comfortable in my own peel. :-)
