Sometimes you have to encourage yourself, because only you know exactly where you want to go & how you’ll get there.
You tell people your ideas and they think you’re crazy... You tell them you’re on this road - the road to creativity - the one that threatens dead ends, detours, and frightening stops, and they don’t understand because they can’t read your map. They’re not familiar with the direction you’re headed in, because they’ve never been there.
And you try to tell them what lies on the other side of all the scary twists & turns, but they don’t believe you’ll ever make it there because they’ve “heard” about others that have lost their way.
They call you mad.
But you laugh, keep on driving, and leave them standing there on the side of the road next to the creepy looking shed as nightfall approaches.
Who’s the crazy one now?
