If you’re not putting yourself out there every day, risking rejection and feeling like you just might die, you aren’t really doing the work.
You’re just performing, playing the part of an artist.
In order to live a life worthy of the calling you’ve received, you must do something that scares you. That’s how you create art.
So… are you in?
Your voice begins to slip away from me.
Life is like that. Death is like that.
Never regret anything you did because it was once what you wanted, but do regret something you never do because you would never get to know how it turns out to be.
Not everything happens for a reason. Sometimes life just sucks.
Indeed, maybe sometimes life just sucks.
Don’t get attached to moments. Good or bad, they all pass.
I’m not sure what I’ll do, but— well, I want to go places and see people. I want my mind to grow. I want to live where things happen on a big scale.
—F. Scott Fitzgerald
