A painfully obvious letter to myself....

THIS {LIFE} IS NOT EASY. IT IS NOT FUN. BUT IT CAN BE IF YOU REPEAT AFTER ME: IT'S JUST LIFE. IT IS NOT PERFECT. THERE ARE NO ASSURANCES. NOT EVERYONE WILL LIKE YOU. NOT EVERYTHING YOU HAVE TO DO WILL BE ENJOYABLE. 

YOU ARE HUMAN! YOU ARE FALLIBLE!  YOU WILL ENJOY LIFE MUCH MORE IF YOU ACCEPT - NO, EMBRACE - THE FACT THAT THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A GOOD DECISION AND A BAD DECISION. THERE ARE ONLY DECISIONS. MAKE THEM. MESS UP, ENJOY, REPEAT.

from Monkey Mind: A Memoir of Anxiety by Daniel Smith
