It was in that moment that I was first enthralled by math. It had been something I could do and could even enjoy, but it was that moment, when I saw the most beautiful thing I have ever seen in the world, that I found a goal to strive for.
It was in that moment that I found one of my holy grails to search for. I wanted to know more and the teacher could offer nothing else.
The most beautiful sound I have ever heard is that of the violin. I could be spirited away by the sound of those strings.
What is the most beautiful thing you have ever . . .
How did that thing make you feel? Do you get the same or a similar feeling when you think about it or learn about it or experience it? Is it something you can learn for yourself?
For this moment do not give any thoughts to whether or not you can make money doing it. That is not important in this moment. (and besides the world is changing and how you can make a living is changing just as fast) I want you to look into whether it is something there is information on that you can obtain. Or if there are people you can talk to. Whether it is in-person or online.
I had a realization one day. I had been going to a community college for several years. That college had a music department. I made some inquiries and sent some e-mails and soon enough I was enrolled in violin lessons. And the school provided a violin on loan to me for the classes.

So have you looked into how you might be able to learn something that moves you? Have you even considered the implications of having something that moves you?
