loving the fool

I must learn to love the fool in me the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. – Theodore Isaac Rubin

every action, every decision we make however well-thought out however best the intention involves a certain amount of risk and the absolute likelihood of self-doubt. from the most mundane choices to the bolder than thou what did I just say leaps emotions sway pendulum-like through the gray areas, barely touching the black, the white. it is these in-between moments when we are filled with excitement, zest, uncertainty, potentially regret, that we must remember without risk there are no rewards; that until we step out of our comfort zone and embrace “the wilderness of [our] intuition…by not quite knowing what [we] are doing… what [we’ll] discover will be wonderful, and will be [y]ourselves.”*

Saltwater Remix (Chicane)
