“The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live.”—Leo F. Buscagli (via wishcandy)
I’ve only made one resolutions mostly I just made a check list. A check list that is juvenile and has been about the same for ever. This year was the least productive year for me I hope to work hard and change that. To be fair though I graduated last May and wasted several months over analyzing everything and trying to make myself decide what I want out of life (which was very very dumb). Another dumb thing I did was worry leading to my one resolution to chill the fuck out.
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
