"All the genius I have is the fruit of labor."--Alexander Hamilton
Have you ever said "I wish I could play the piano like she does" or "I wish I could paint like he does" or "I wish I could write like she does?" I have. Over the years, I've said many such things, as though by saying the words, I could transform myself in to that pianist, that painter, that writer.
Unwittingly, I negate the hard work those people put in to attain their talent, their prowess, their accomplishments. For they have put in countless hours of work to achieve what they have.
Joy for today: putting in the work.
