Finding your inner artist, day 8: About being grateful to those who lit the spark

Today’s quote:

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. ~ Albert Schweitzer

I had a wonderful music teacher at school. I played instruments before I met her, and I had music teachers before her, but no one had ever made me feel so passionate about singing, or made me believe I could achieve what I wanted to achieve, quite like her. I am convinced I wouldn’t be the artist and teacher I am today without her. I met many other wonderful musicians and teachers throughout my life, but she was quite literally the one who lit the fire.

Do you remember who lit that spark in you? What would that person say to you in a crisis, or if you felt like giving up your art? And wouldn’t you believe them if they always believed in you?
