“Don’t wait for someone else’s permission”
“Creativity is more than just art”
“Don’t let excuses or fear keep you from starting”
As I scroll through, I find that a lot of my blog posts have very similar themes. Even beyond that, in some of them I’m pretty much making the exact same point, just saying it in a different way. At times, I fear this to be evidence of laziness, or my inability to craft and original thought. However, upon looking at my own life, I’m not so sure that’s true.
Just because you’ve heard doesn’t mean you’ve learned.
Just because you know doesn’t mean you’re going to act accordingly.
There is an inherent gap between hearing and learning, and the only way to cross it is by reminding yourself of the lesson over and over again until it finally sinks in.
So maybe I’m not repeating myself, maybe I just haven’t learned these lessons yet.
