I've read the preface and through page 6. I find myself excited about the possibilities in my creativity, and at the same time I feel very sad. I'm sad over all the time I've let slip by without *doing* anything with my creativity and my dreams. And I'm sad and maybe a little scared because I'm having a hard time fully believing that I can live my dream and have the life I want.
Still, not trying will make sure that I remain dissatisfied with my life. So I have to try. And I have to remember that it will take work and time and patience. Here's a good quote from the book: "Creativity is a divinely installed feature of ever new joy, but it simply cannot be categorized as 'quick and easy.'"
