Instructions for living a life.
Tell about it.
― Mary Oliver
Stormy water hits a calm beach.
Nature is about balance; the coming and going, the ebb and flow.
This got me thinking about the ebb and flow of opportunities for risk that come and go every single day.
Every. Single. Day.
We are inundated with opportunities. The question is what we do with them.
It’s this simple: If I never try anything, I never learn anything. If I never take a risk, I stay where I am. If I go ahead and do it, that affects how much I continue wanting to do it. When I hold myself back, I trade appearances for the opportunity to find out what I am like. – Hugh Prather
Good words from director and author of Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi:
Life is too short and we cannot spoil it. I don’t have 300 years in front of me. So I just do the things that I really want to do at the moment because that’s the only way you will do them well. If you don’t believe in yourself, it won’t work.
My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living. -Anais Nin
Ideas come when you:
say yes more often.
are open to inspiration.
celebrate the ordinary.
surround yourself with creatives.
