Friday thoughts #3

Writer, publicist and religious anarchist Elbert Hubbard brings us today's Friday Thought. I've reached a point where I feel like I need to make changes in a few areas of my life. I need to look after myself and get more sleep, I need to learn to leave my work at the door and let things go, and to push myself more professionally. I reached this point after feeling like I had made too many mistakes and let amazing opportunities pass me by.

It's great timing that I stumbled upon this quote. I realised that I had to make those mistakes to get to this point, and that worrying about my next move being just as much of a mistake as the last isn't going to get me anywhere. Instead I'm going to be a bit more reckless. I'm going to stop playing it safe and start taking control of my life a bit more. If there are stumbling blocks along the way then that's fine. It's further than I would've gotten by sitting around being afraid to make changes.

The next time you feel a mistake weighing on your shoulders or playing on your mind, take ownership of it, move on, and learn. It's the only way to really live.

Have a great weekend everyone!
