An excerpt of something I wrote after reading the book #GIRLBOSS:
I want to create BEAUTY.
Even if that means exposing UGLINESS. Because therein lies truth.
I want to make things that people will marvel at. To stop them in their tracks the way ‘The Diving Bell and The Butterfly‘ stopped me in mine. Exquisite, impressionable art isn’t happenstance; it’s something you labor over with love.
Half of me says “You’ll always be mediocre. You’re a fish swimming upstream; just one of the many in the crowd.”
The other half fights to breathe. “You are unique. One in billions. And whether or not you THRIVE or simply survive… well, the choice is all yours.”
