"Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is
a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is
neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at
happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either.
Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed
with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you
love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward
yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the
love and intensity and courage you can, and keep travelling
honestly along life’s path."
