I haven’t shedded a tear since my arrival. Even though things are different and at times I feel kinda lonely here, I’ve survived pretty okay. Today I was looking for motivation posters/wall art to decorate my minimalistic room, but I couldn’t find any that makes me go crazy, so I decided to just print out quotes I like.
Other than the obvious choices from Steve Jobs, I was particularly affected by Facebook’s COO Sheryl Sandberg. In her memoir cum feminist manifesto, she asks readers “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?”
It was a question I asked myself months ago. When I asked myself the same question again today, my eyes became filled with tears of joy and pride. I AM doing exactly what I wanted to do. THIS is what I do when I’m not afraid.
