Lisa was cleaning up her room, while she was thinking:"God, I'm so tired today.
Luckily tomorrow it's Saturday and I'm free from school and work.
Wow things really change beyond years.
Time ago I would have never dared thinking to start working at age of 14, at least I do it for my family, especially for Maggie, and this stimulates me continuing, seeing 'em happy is priceless"
Thinking at this used to cause, usually, a mix of contrasting emotions in Lisa, just like in this occasion, very tiring.
When she finished making the bed, Lisa said, to herself:- finally, I've finished everything here, now.. It's about eight, within some time mom will call us for dinner-
Lisa picked up the phone to check the time, and saw a message from Patrick:"Lisa tomorrow, I'm free, what do you want to do?".
Lisa reflected a bit and answered:"I don't know".
She closed the message app and opened the music one, lately she was falling in love with rap and house music, a thing which surprised even her.
When you want to quit art, think about this...I think most of us had it at some point. A moment in which we felt sad about our art. It might have been a full developed artblock, or just a small moment of hopelessness, perhaps questioning our artistic career, asking yourself "Why did I actually start doing this?".

Over the years, I've had many moments like that. Most of them triggered by another failed drawing, a total lack of inspiration (while I needed to get creative work done --nothing more annoying than that!), or another harsh critique that was just a bit too much to handle, at that particular moment.
I've had many times that I doubted myself. There have been times when I questioned my creativity in general. Times when I was sad about just another harsh critique, or depressed for being turned down by another group or publisher. Times when I got angry and shouted that I wanted to quit art altogether.
But eventually, I never quit.
The point is... no matter how angry or sad I am, it always takes me a while to calm down and
