The One Thing by Cyclone-Dusk The One Thing by Cyclone-Dusk
I was telling a friend how much I love derpy when this line popped into my head:

"The only thing I can't do is give up!"

There was a very specific feeling to it. A kind of relentless hopefulness. I tried to expound upon it here, but I worry I may have gone too far to emphasize the point:

Nobody has the right, the authority, or the perspective to project their fears and failures upon YOU.

This is YOUR life. YOUR time. Nobody is going to make the best of it FOR you.

And this is one thing that I can't do, sadly....

Hugging her.

Yeah. You are the master of your life. Beautiful artwork and message.

The only real obstacle that could defeat you is yourself.

If anyone tells you your dreams are doomed to fail, and that you're failure, take their words and SHOVE IT DOWN THEIR THROATS. 

Nicely done, by the way!

MEANWHILE: Postal Service comes under fire from ponies having their lives destroyed because of extremely important mail that was improperly delivered.

This is a great attitude to have and a wonderful sentiment to share. I think this is why Derpy is my favorite pony....she has been through many of the same trials I have and neither of us has ever completely given up. Thank you for doing this, it is truly an inspiration to me and I hope to others. Great work!!

Thank you very much for your kind words. It means incredibly much to me. Especially on the heels of some revelations I've stumbled upon just in the past few hours. I actually ... kind of feel like I have a bit of my motivation back.
