Talent is a pursued interest. Anything that you’re willing to practice, you can do.

Grit

Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. Grit is having stamina. Grit is sticking with your future, day in, day out, not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years, and working really hard to make that future a reality. Grit is living life like it’s a marathon, not a sprint.

~ Angela Lee Duckworth

Living Normally, for me, was Dancing

Some people sometimes ask me if dance is a passion for me. But it is much more than a passion, it’s part of me. It’s like breathing, it’s a need. It is true that dancing helped me to set myself goals but if I continued to attend classes during my chemotherapy, it was not just to achieve and keep myself in shape. I wanted to continue living normally. And living normally for me was dancing.

Certaines personnes me demandent parfois si la danse est une passion pour moi. Mais c’est bien plus qu’une passion, ça fait partie de moi. C’est comme respirer, c’est un besoin. C’est vrai que danser m’a permis de me fixer des objectifs mais si j’ai continué à suivre des cours pendant ma chimiothérapie, ce n’était pas juste pour les atteindre et me maintenir en forme. J’avais l’impression de continuer à vivre normalement. Et vivre normalement, pour moi, c’était danser.

This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often.

The Holster Manifesto

This is your life.
Do what you love, and do it often.
If you don’t like something, change it.
If you don’t like your job, quit.
If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
If you are looking for the love of your life, stop;
they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.
Stop over analyzing, life is simple.
All emotions are beautiful.
When you eat, appreciate every last bite.
Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people,
we are united in our differences.
Ask the next person you see what their passion is,
and share your inspiring dream with them.
Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself.
Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them,
so go out and start creating.
Life is short.
Live your dream and share your passion.

~ The Holstee Manifesto

Follow your heart and intuition

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
