Inspiration from J.K. Rowling

24 Jun

Seven years after graduating from university, Rowling saw herself as “the biggest failure I knew.”[52] Her marriage had failed, she was jobless with a dependent child, but she described her failure as liberating:
Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy to finishing the only work that mattered to me. Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one area where I truly belonged. I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter, and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.
– J. K. Rowling, “The fringe benefits of failure”, 2008.[52]

This quote from J.K. Rowling is such an inspiration to me because I have gone through a similar situation me being jobless, and a single mother as well. What inspires me is that even though she may have failed as being a wife, or at her job, it was a freeing experience, free to be who she really was. I can really relate. Over the last couple of years I have been hiding who I was, my dreams, my likes, dislikes , everything, because I guess I was embarrassed of what people would say. Now, I am accepting who I am day by day, trying to be fearless and step out on faith to follow my dreams. Because I don’t want to die regretting things that I didn’t do out of fear. I’m all in!!!!! Sky’s the limit!!!!!!

Peace, Love, and Write on,
