There is no high or low path really. There is the path you choose, and the ones you neglect.
There’s not gonna be an abundance of choices, sometimes it’s a grind you need to get through to give yourself more options. But everyday, the most important choice is intangible. It’s found in the ways you decide to look at things. The habits of mind, are what make the difference. There will be no big opportunity if you’re not used to creating the little ones for yourself.
Ground yourself in the daily more.
It’s all a high wire act of skill and performance, or artistry and exercise, of practice and improvise.
I know we’re naturally introverts, just embrace it, don’t feel the pressure to pretend. Embrace your love for dreaming and quiet, coffee and cooking, early mornings over late nights. The ideal hierarchy is not dancing queens versus wall flowers, you are both. The real gauge for where you are is built on the fluctuating path to your best self. The labratory, junk shop, bodega of our room is your own half way house for making ideas real. You’re still kinda gonna be there at 25, but when you’re wondering if you’re wrong somehow, caught up in someone elses idea of you, please, stop wasting time.
