Pursuing my dreams, I've learned, isn't just about doing what feels good in the moment. That will alienate a lot of people and you'll fizzle out.
You matter. Where there are thousands of people making going about their lives on the street, you standing still in the middle of it all, you matter.
In a tough moment don't clench your fists. Open them. Then, be prepared to tear apart the paper around your soul and unwrap your gifts.
