Notes to self

Some advice that I sometimes struggle with, but also know to be important. 
From me, to myself. From me, to you.

start small

Rome wasn't built in a day, and passion requires hours and years of patience and toil to nurture it. Sometimes, you're just too young.

dream big

Castles in the air may lead to disappointment, but they give you a reason to be.

"Dream on, but don't imagine they'll all come true." - 'Vienna', Billy Joel
"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." - Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
"And she was richer in those dreams than in realities, for things seen pass away, but things that are unseen are eternal." - L.M. Montgomery, Anne of the Island

dont settle

Know what you're worth, and what's worth compromising for.

think positive

Is there always a silver lining?

the clocks point to now

I find that I'm so much calmer and happier when I stop focusing on the past and the future, on what people and society expect me to be doing or not doing while dictating the trajectory of my life. Making my own mistakes.
The clocks point to now.
