I generally feel fulfilled until I listen and watch a music clip or some inspiring masterpiece and I think, am I doing enough in fulfilling my passions in life and sharing them with the world?
I am not sure if many creative people feel this way, I suspect that is part of the reason why some of us just want to have more recognition about our skills, not to show off, but purely to know we are sharing our talents and therefore spreading the light and joy that we feel, creating and making something so inspiring that it touches the deepest depths of our soul.
I guess this is why I write. It helps me reach that inner feeling of contempt, awe and peace.
I have always said this from the beginning but if I had heaps of money, I would still write because it is the essence of my soul. In a way, words help connect with my soul to help me think about the world we are in, the people we meet and the true essence of our selves and our inner light.

Sometimes I do wonder, is it enough? Am I reaching enough people? When they read my work can they feel what I can feel when I write it?
Is it enough? Will it ever be enough? Perhaps that is why artists keep writing lyrics and keep producing new albums and music videos, because no matter how successful they are, they can’t let go of something that sparks their inner light and can’t help but want to share it with the world.
What lights up your life? How do you share it with the world?
