However, it’s easy to see the things that come easily to us as having less value. That’s easy — so it doesn’t count. But that’s not true. It absolutely counts.
Writing, for me, comes easily. I love the challenge of having a project to do — whether it’s sci-fi and fantasy, mindfulness/self-improvement writing, or business/work-related writing.
Yet I have undervalued how right writing felt to me because it comes as easily as it does. But that’s just because it’s a thing that brings me joy and makes me feel content.
Just because something comes easily to you — it might not be so easy to others.

As Einstein may or may not have said,
“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
What does that mean? It means that every individual has their own perception of reality. That’s why some people believe in…
