Just because something was designed for a certain purpose, doesn't mean you have to use it that way.
What is one ability I feel confident in?
What is something I really love to do, just because?
If you're having trouble finding 'your thing,' ask yourself these questions with an honest and open mind: What is something I really love to do, just because?
People really do respond to passion and authenticity.
The problem is that we fail to see what is already inside of us. If we do see it, we're quick to dismiss or devalue it.
Inside of you right now is a completely unique combination of talents, skills, interests, and experiences. No one else has the combination that you have.
We're so good at comparing ourselves to other people and their talent and skills. We don't spend nearly enough time nurturing and thinking about our own.
You don't need to be the best at everything in order to be completely irreplaceable — be the best at exactly who you are.
It finally dawned on me why my self-doubt was suddenly silent — I was doing something so totally me that so perfectly combined the best parts of myself that no one else was doing in the way I was doing. I finally didn't have anyone else to compare myself to.

For the first time in my life, I was having fun not knowing. The freedom that came with walking to suddenly feel like I could go anywhere and do anything and see fascinating stuff all along the way was like nothing I had ever experienced.
It was a little tasty mystery waiting to be unraveled.
I discovered the joy of taking long walks.
I'm convinced that everybody has a metaphorical backyard of unique skills and interests already inside of them that when combined can result in major inspiration and give them a new way to think about pursuing their creative passions.
Are you coasting or are you cocooning?
We need to see your process way more than we need to see your perfection.
Weirdness is what happens when chaos ensues.
Reflect credit but embrace blame. If there's something wrong, you own that. If someone, particularly a boss or a client wants to take credit, that's fabulous! The reason it's fabulous is that they will come back to you for more of that. They have a choice of who to work with, and they're eager to work with people who make them look good.
