“No one else is the authority on your potential”

People are amazing. And the things we capable of when we decide to follow our dreams is incredible.

Here are 2 interviews from Brit Hammer that I found especially inspiring:

“Follow your heart. Do what you’re passionate about; do it to the best of your ability, and everything else will fall into place.
And there are only 650,000 hours in the average lifetime, so do it now!”
from an interview with Arctic explorer Ben Saunders

“The hardest journey is “from the warm bed to the cold floor” meaning that getting started is the hard part. Excuses, procrastination, justifying our excuses to ourselves… Apathy and inertia. These are the things that stop us achieving, that smother us in frustration. I cried a lot, I was scared a lot, and I wanted to quit most of the time. If I had known at the start of the journey all that I knew by the end, there is no way I would have dared even to begin. But I’m so very glad I did begin!”
from an Interview with Alastair Humphreys (he rode his bicycle around the world)

Armand was checking out your post on (MMMMMmmm!) pie crusts since he’s the better baker in our household and I had to let him know what you’re up to with schmalz, I mean, lard. (cue giggle fit). He got curious and headed to (cue movie trailer voice) “Post #1” (cue normal voice) to see how you started out blogging and told me about THIS post. Geez, I missed this one. So just wanted to say thanks. It warms my heart to know that the DreamQuest series did what I hoped it would cuz lookit ya NOW! :-) xxoo
