The title [Trust Your Life] alone helped strengthen my resolve to take the leap of faith to leave my day job to pursue my art full-time. Thanks for the work you do to help others follow their bliss—it sounds like you’re doing great work in the world.

I feel encouraged by your words. I like the thought that I should write for a fixed while every day. I shall follow the routine and see where it takes me. Whenever I write I shall remember you.

I have not taken this matter seriously so far mainly because I know that I don’t make the grade. The feeling has been that even if I write how many would like to read it anyway? But now I see things with a small difference. Your mail was a message from the blue, and through you life is telling me to write.

Pardon my late replies and please continue to encourage me.
