Letting go of expectations

"...You need to realize something else: you can lead a perfectly good and satisfactory life even if you're not a writer [artist]. When i figured out that i could be perfectly happy and not be a writer, i became a better writer. The unhappiest people in the world may be the ones who think their happiness depends on artistic success of some kind."

-- Wendell Berry
