“The underlying cause of most unfulfilled lives is that we are simply too close to ourselves to see clearly enough to get out of our own way.”
“I used to think that intelligence came from books and knowledge and rational thought. But that’s not intelligence: It’s just information and interpretation. Real intelligence is when your mind and your heart connect. That’s when you see the truth so clearly and unmistakably that you don’t have to think about it.”
“If I want true freedom, I need to accept that the path leading there is going to be one of discomfort and vulnerability.”

Some things in life are too good not to share. In this case, it’s someone. I have to share what my good friend Terry Singh is up to. I’m so proud of him! He’s been getting all sorts of press lately for a super-cool fashion line that he created.
The photos you see of Terry are by Nacho Guevara (1 & 2), Luca Morgantini (3, 4 & 5) and Andrey Gavrilenko (6). There is also a fantastic video of him on Facebook. It’s a must see!

“It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. Throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you. Trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly, on tiptoes and no luggage, completely unencumbered.”
Quote by Aldous Huxley
If my life where a movie or book, what would I want see happen for the main character?
If my death was in six weeks, what would I make top priority?

“To free us from the expectations of others, to give us back to ourselves – there lies the great, singular power of self-respect.”
“Self-respect is a question of recognizing that anything worth having has a price.”
“Character — the willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life — is the source from which self-respect springs.”
All quotes by Joan Didion
