Oh, Miley. I was on your side until you made me question my youth. Now, I have to tell it like it is.
People need to be encouraged. People need to be reminded of how wonderful they are. People need to be believed in—told that they are brave and smart and capable of accomplishing all the dreams they dream and more. Remind each other of this.
Sometimes we’re afraid we’ll fail. Sometimes we’re subconsciously afraid we’ll succeed, because then we’d have to deal with all the disruption (growth) and change that follows success. And other times it’s our fear of rejection or simply our fear of looking like a fool. So it’s easier to hesitate, to wait for the perfect moment, to decide we need to think a bit longer or do some more research or explore a few more unnecessary alternatives. Let today be the day you conquer that fear.
—Borrowed from the lovely and supremely talented Halle Murcek
A little kindness for your day! xox
It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.
Different day, same struggle. Slow motion as time slips through my knuckles. Nothing beautiful about it, no light at the tunnel, for the people who put their passion before them being comfortable

The most wonderful commencement speech I have ever heard. True kindness!
