Inspiration for Beginners.

Source of quote here


I recently saw this Ira Glass quote on the wall of a Facebook friend, and I would like to share it with you. I've been reading it every day since as a source of comfort and inspiration. You know, I'm not one to wake up every morning looking to "seize the day" or pump my fist into the air with a "Go get 'em, Buster" attitude. My own personal style is usually one of scathing self-doubt and hesitation, mixed with an unrealistic and annoying dollop of impatience to be brilliant first time at everything I do. So I really dug this quote. It strikes at the very heart of my anxiety about starting over in a new venture, and the dreaded possibility that I might fail or not be good enough, replacing fear with enough perspective to get out of my own way.

Thank you, Ira.
