When I was in graduate school I was chatting with a professor casually and I was talking about a choice I had, one option being the more scary of the two. She looked at me very kindly and told me that the choice was clear. "If it scares you or you're worried about it, it probably means that's exactly what you need to do".
Now that was a little backwards from how I was feeling at the time. I was thinking Oh that's the scary one, I should definitely do the other. We all think that way sometimes. But choosing the safe option doesn't grow you very much. I started practicing this from that very moment and it's proved to be the most valuable advice I've ever received.
Do what scares you.
This blog is less about my writing, and more about sharing inspiration. I'll post pictures, articles, and videos that I find interesting, moving, or just funny (funny being a loose term here as my humor is generally of the nerdy psychoanalytic variety).
