To stand up straight with your shoulders backs to accept the terrible responsibility of life, with eyes wide open.*
(Jordan Peterson: the first rule for life)
Saying “no” to the world can be really hard, but sometimes it’s the only way to say “yes” to your art and your sanity.**
The most courageous thing we can do is to be who we can be.
A person of integrity: connected to others, to our world and to ourselves.
This growing out of humility, the kind which says no to the many lives others want us to live.
What must you do and how will you do it today?
This is your responsibility and yours alone.
It is your restoration project.
I have mine.
