“Energy and persistence conquer all things.” – Benjamin Franklin
All I can say is this: if you want something badly enough, go for it. I can tell you from personal experience that Ben Franklin was right. This statement is true – 100%. It may not happen in the timeframe you think it should, it may feel like it is NEVER going to happen, and it will definitely take every ounce of energy you have and persistence you didn’t even know you had. You cannot give up, you must be patient, you must try hard to maintain faith. It may not be easy, it will most likely be terrifying. But in the end, if it is something you are truly passionate about, if it is something – or someone – you truly love, it will be the best thing you ever did.
By the way, this quote by Benjamin Franklin is my wife’s favorite. She’s the inspiration for this and many (maybe most) of my pieces of art. She’s also the reason I know this quote is true.
Put your energy into what you love, be brave, be persistent, follow your heart… You won’t be disappointed.
That’s what this piece is about. You can see more pictures of it in my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/kerrytopjun
