It doesn't happen overnight.
It might take 3-10 years.
It might not turn out the way you imagined.
It feels like a grind, often with no positive signs to be found.
It's easy to look around and feel hallow, especially when movement is everywhere else.
At first, it's slow, really slow...
What can you do?
Look backwards to see where you came from.
Keep moving in the space between.
Never give up, ever.
But, give, give, give.
Learn to love difficulty.
Realize that being able to make something from nothing is an extraordinary gift.
Realize if you have that gift, you also have a responsibility to share it with others.
Realize that if you can stand in the face of being swept away without being destroyed, that's when you've become honest, lucid and bruised enough to make the spectacular come to life.
