"Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story."
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking (via 27sailors)
"Failure is your best friend. It never kills you. It always teaches you. And the feeling it brings is as real as it gets. You fail? Cool. Work it out on paper and re-calibrate. You tried it once and it didn’t go? Cool. Youtube that activity and find your shortcoming. Drink that bitterness. You won’t die."
