I need to write myself something that slows me down and takes me home. Like a mantra of sorts? I always forget where I left off and waste too much time trying to catch up with myself.

“I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me.”

“When someone is seeking,” said Siddartha, “It happens quite easily that he only sees the thing that he is seeking; that he is unable to find anything, unable to absorb anything, because he is only thinking of the thing he is seeking, because he has a goal, because he is obsessed with his goal. Seeking means: to have a goal; but finding means: to be free, to be receptive, to have no goal. You, O worthy one, are perhaps indeed a seeker, for in striving towards your goal, you do not see many things that are under your nose.”
Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
Your past is no indicator of your potential. Begin again.
