Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.

It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.

It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “find your passion” and “know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees.

For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth.

Just because things hadn’t gone the way I’d planned didn’t necessarily mean they’d gone wrong.

I have never known who or what I am supposed to be. The only thing I know for sure, is that I am supposed to be more than I have been.
