Is It Really Worth It?

Sometimes when I’m sitting here at my work station, I wonder if what I am doing is really worth it. I spend hours upon hours designing, making changes and then when I think I’m happy with the finished product, more changes are made. There are times when I wander to check mail or just to browse, resting on a spot or two in envy when I read how luck shines on someone and they have an opportunity to make it big.

I would like to be successful in my work but I get discouraged and I feel as if all of this is such a waste of time. It’s been about two years since I’ve filed for my copyright and received the document in the mail last year. I was so excited to see it and was encouraged to continue on. As time rolled on, disappointment settled in once again. This is not unusual I’m sure….to be on this roller coaster ride because success does not come without up and downs.

Will I be as successful as I dream to be? Will all of my hard work pay off in the end? If I stay the course, only time will tell. Besides, in the end who has the right to say if success has truly laid a path for me….even if my name is not in the lights?

Is it really worth it?…..you betcha!
