This, of course, has never worked out in my favor. Not even once.
The other thing I'm doing is finding quotes that really resonate with me and adding them to my art journal, since I like being able to keep everything in there as a one-stop shop for inspiration and encouragement. Some of the keepers are scattered throughout this post, and I love them - here's to the wise folks who spoke/wrote these words!
And, of course, there's always this gem (one of my favorite parts of Clueless):
If prior experience is any indication, trusting myself, listening to my instincts and my heart, and being true to myself -- across every area of my life, not just a handful of situations -- will be a tremendous change for the better.
