I Don't Live Up to My Full Potential Either

I once saw pictures on line of a 15 year old girl who got up every morning at 5:45 or 6:00 AM and spent two hours painting or writing poems.

Over the course of a couple years, her art became very popular and her poems became an interest to the pubic.

I learned Japaneese, while I lived in the country, by going to one of their colleges for 9 months to get the basics, and then I spent 2-3 hours a day, usually in the morning or late at night, studying.

If ANYTHING of our potential is to become available to us and others, it will take that kind of sacrifice.

Unfortunately, I really like to read or listen to Opera or watch T.V.

Yes, you have that right! I truly enjoy life through people, books, music and art. BUT when a goal needs to be reached, I am happy that I CAN organize and concentrate. <br />

Is this picture of you? Whoever it is, is very cute.<br />

Yes, true. But never forget to live your life! There might not be another chance for that! But it is good to use as much of your potential as possible but still live your life :)
