Settling is a huge fear of mine. I fear that I sometimes don’t have the courage or strength to take chances. There is so much I want to do, and so much that I want to say. I think I worry too much about outcomes I project in my mind. I know it sounds like none of this makes sense, but it does. Optimism will help me take those chances. If I let my fears subside, the possibilities are endless. Ultimately what I’m saying is, don’t be afraid of the unknown. Embrace it. You are your experiences. I don’t know where this is heading.
I guess that’s life. The great unknown. Goodnight.
“I will be wild. I will be brutal. I will encircle you and conquer you. I will be more powerful than your boats and your swords and your blood lust. I will be inevitable.”—Iphigenia, from A Memory of Wind by Rachel Swirsky. (via sourirefugace)
“…Move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food, it’s a plus for everybody. Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.”—Anthony Bourdain (via amorbastante)
