So we leave today, and after starting off with a suitcase weighing 65 lbs, I’ve shaved off the weight to just under the checked bag limit. After much complaining, I said goodbye to the extra snacks I packed as well as some vitamins and fiber pills.
"She was becoming herself and daily casting aside that fictitious self which we assume like a garment with which to appear before the world."
Kate Chopin, The Awakening
Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.
I am always doing what I can't do yet in order to learn how to do it."
I don't know quite who I am, oh but man I am trying / I make mistakes until I get it right / An eye for an eye for an eye for an eye for an eye /
I used to hate myself but now I think I'm alright.
Courtney Barnett, "Small Poppies"
