You need to take that on a journey

But owning genius requires admitting that we can be exceptional or extraordinary in our own way and accepting that means we have a responsibility to do something with it.*
(Bernadette Jiwa)

We are what remains after everything we are not.**
(Maria Popova)

Bernadette Jiwa asks,

‘When did one day become never?’^

By genius, I’m not thinking big and dramatic, rather, something we love and have honed and no-one else has done.

We can only find out just what it might be if we take it on a journey.

Jiwa answers her own question:

‘One day becomes never when we fail to take the first step.’*
