Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone. —Pablo Picasso

  • No matter how many therapy sessions I spend worrying that it’s selfish or egotistical, I ultimately conclude that I don’t know any other way. There’s this constant gnawing feeling. I feel uneasy like I’ve wasted a day if I haven’t created something.
  • In the course of our lives, we build kinetic energy. Time goes by, we have new experiences, and we get older. No matter what, we will be impacted by our world. We’ll hear the judgement of others, or get sidetracked by distractions. We can let that impact stop us, the way a bean bag would limply plop onto the floor, or we can harness the energy of that impact to help us reach our potential. Moreover, we can reach greater heights by putting in the effort.
  • “no matter who you are, you really are the only person with that voice. And that is the thing to really lean into, even if it’s weird.”
