I am not giving up on my dream

Art exhibition in Singapore. ARTualize is the only art gallery in Singapore that lets you rent paintings for your home. Singapore artist Low Hai Hong painting outside his HDB flat in Singapore.


My apologies for missing in action for the past two months.
It was not because I was busy with other projects nor down with poor health or went travelling. 
I was preparing the next article in April when suddenly I asked myself, why am I doing this?  Why am I spending time and effort writing articles that most probably nobody reads?  Why am I pushing on when there are no results?  
So I stopped doing anything on ARTualize. 
I spent time thinking: when should one give up? When should one stop trying?  When should one accept reality?
This is the answer I found for myself: when it is no longer your dream.  When the thing you are doing is no longer your passion and your goal, it is time to stop pursuing it.  You do not stop because the world tells you so.  You stop because you heard yourself. 
I listened carefully to myself and now know that my dream is still much alive in my heart.  I must keep going. 
I will continue to listen to the feedback that the world tells me, and adjust my strategies accordingly, but the world will not be allowed to determine when I let go of my dreams.
