“The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.”
So forget the networking, planning, preparing, stacking my dreams higher. I’m accepting that I’m shaken, and rebuilding starting from ground zero. Before I can be a badass earth-saver, I need to be a gentle, happy, grounded human being that can stand on her own two feet.
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence…And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Breathe. That’s all you need to do.
