Ashamed of repeating oneself

Repetition is the mother of skill. There’s nothing to be ashamed about open that inspirational quotes book and read it over and over. Nothing to complain about listening to that enlightening podcast once again. We all feel at some point that we should be able to stand on our own’s feet. That we should have learned the lesson and move to the next one.

We might decide that we want to change. But we are not computers, and that’s our magic. Don’t skip over learning how to shift your attitude. You might be very close to it, and you just don’t know.

Don’t turn that conversation down just because you might not be able to live up to it. People who are willing to listen to you will gently remind you of your deepest dreams when you’ll drown in confusion. Impart that lesson you got after years of struggle – people might thank you, after all.

Pick yourself, and keep making art until someone can’t ignore you any longer.

It’s not fair, but it’s better than the alternative.
