I'm just gonna say it... today was a sucky day.
You do what you love, and you work to make it happen... Or you work so that you can do the things you love.
Not the same thing. And one is not easier than the other. You have to strive either way.
So regardless of what you are doing have people in your life that support you. That love you. And that make the smaller things in life easier, so that you can do what you love.
