Do you ever have those moments when you just know you are going to look back tomorrow and next week and next year and remember the scene down to every specific detail? Those moments are perfect. It was one of those moments, I know I am going to remember. It was those few words strung together in a perfectly constructed sentence that clicked with my brain exactly how they should.

There is no turning back from this point. I will forever be inspired by a short British ginger with a heart and the ability to put together so perfectly. If you have a dream, if you want something there is no wasting time. There is only putting yourself out there and doing what you have to do, no matter how hard or difficult or tiring it might be.

"If you want to go into photography or radio or journalism sitting in classes isn't going to get you what you want. You might have to start out making tea,"- Ed

Of course dropping out of college isn't an option or what he was meaning suggest, but if making tea for execs is what I need to do to get to where I want, I will pour all the tea on the earth.

When he was trying to get his music career up and going Ed slept on couches, for years. If Ed can sleep on couches, I can sure as hell write some more. If I want to be a writer, if I want to write books, if I want to make an impact, what really is stopping me from doing so?

Above all other governing and hovering figures in my life, I ultimately, am the one to make the decision as to what is best for me and what I want to do.

There is no giving up or wasting time. There is no trying. There is having a dream and running full force toward it.

Thank you Ed Sheeran for speaking the words I more than needed to hear. On top of a beautiful life changing concert, you gave me the courage to step outside of my little box and do exactly what it is I want to do.
