If you care (and I mean really care) about something that comes hard to you, it might be the thing that has the potential to bring you greatest joy, fulfilment or whatever you hope to get.

If art is the thing you love, you should never expect that times are coming when everything is easy. Masterpieces are flowing out of your brush, collectors are paying a lot to get them and people take them deep into their hearts. No, it will always be hard and great but not at the same time or when you expect it to be.
