chicago bean reflection

thoughts i’ve learned along the way…

1. the more i realize that the image i’ve always had in my mind of my perfect mate and perfect life doesn’t always make the perfect reality.
[Extreme hotness does not necessarily lead to extreme happiness.]

2. the more it feels okay to not have to take a stance or have an opinion about everything.
[try it. it feels pretty good.]

3. life is just a series of choices we make, all day, every day, each with their own costs and benefits.
[when you break it down it doesn't feel so overwhelming.]

4. it’s easier to spot the good ones – the people that matter. the people you want to inspire your life, not corrode it.
[hold onto them.]

5. i try to imagine what the view looks like from someone else’s perspective.
[always shift your lens.]

6. complacency kills creativity.
[stepping outside your comfort zone into a frothing pool of vulnerability will shift things, one way or another.]

7. more often than not, quality will always trump quantity.
[this works for people, time, things, etc.]

8. the less fucks i give.
[doing you and doing you to the best of your ability is what makes a difference. caring about the outside static only compromises your soul and if that's gone, what do we really have to stand on?]

9. even the smallest expectation will always lead to disappointment.
[expectations kill dreams.]

10. perfection doesn’t exist.
[again, expectations.]

11. love isn’t just a feeling, it’s an action.
[you show it.]

12. leave a trail of stars.
[be good to people. do your best work. love hard. take risks. it's the trail of stars we leave as our legacy.]
