Musings from a Tent: What I Know to be True

Musings from a Tent: What I Know to be True
Tent-Creative-Countryside
  1. Life isn't easy.
  2. But it's better to be part of the solution than part of the problem, even if you don't think you can change the world.
  3. I want to change the world.
  4. I'm not afraid of the hard work that is necessary in order to change things. My skin tingles and I get excited when I'm working hard at something I love doing.
  5. Sometimes the thing we love changes. I'm learning that this isn't always a bad thing by being a part of this community. It's helping me to realise that my life doesn't need to fit societal expectations.
  6. Just because what makes you happy doesn't make sense to some people, it doesn't mean it isn't something worth striving for.
  7. Right now, I'm searching for a feeling, and focusing on an inkling of an idea. Having the courage to do this without a firm plan isn't easy.
  8. I will never be a worry-free person, but understanding how to control and move past these feelings is something that I need to work on.
  9. In order to move forward and achieve new things, you need to try out new ideas, embrace new plans, and be brave.
  10. Life is simple, really. You get out of it what you put in.

To a brave new future, and to being the change you want to see in the world.
