If a view is what you seek, always ask a local. You will get lost.
This post is for people who are like me: sorta broke (but ~woke~), sorta lost, and sorta hate using the term “adulting” because you seem to be so damn bad at it. Am I making enough money? Is this the right career move? When’s the last time I got my teeth cleaned? Sh*t rent was due yesterday. I’m broke, but wanna go to Sweetgreen?
Those two pieces of advice have shaped my career as a writer and a producer of books for other people.
Deliberately seek out new experiences, just for the sake of novelty.
If you want to accomplish a goal, stop being so focussed on the goal itself. Become obsessed with the daily grind. Put in work. Persevere. Stop wishing and expect it to be hard.
Don’t ever be apologetic for who you are and the mistakes you’ve made.
“Be yourself” is ignorant advice that’s peddled by self-help authors and motivational “gurus” who are more interested in making you feel good about yourself than helping you learn and grow.
Loving yourself is not a destination. Loving yourself is a muscle you build. It’s a choice you make, every single day, in the same way, you must choose to love another person through the good times and the bad.
You’ll have to go on some mediocre dates. You might even kiss a few frogs.
Scorpio: You’re running out of space in yourself for newer, softer memories. Don’t cast them away for those things that don’t deserve it.
