But I have seen the best of you and the worst of you, and I choose both.
—Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye, “An Origin Story” (via larmoyante)
The world can be a cruel place where a lie can challenge your honesty. I promise, that the truth is much more powerful than a lie. Never be bitter, we have all been given the honor, and ability, to forgive, and to be forgiven.
Here are the two states in which you may exist: person who writes, or person who does not. If you write: you are a writer. If you do not write: you are not. Aspiring is a meaningless null state that romanticizes Not Writing. It’s as ludicrous as saying, “I aspire to pick up that piece of paper that fell on the floor.” Either pick it up or don’t.
