So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.

Look at these precious faces, oh my goodness.
Your personal life, your professional life, and your creative life are all intertwined. I went through a few very difficult years where I felt like a failure. But it was actually really important for me to go through that. Struggle, for me, is the most inspirational thing in the world at the end of the day - as long as you treat it that way.
When a man is getting better he understands more and more clearly the evil that is still left in him. When a man is getting worse he understands his own badness less and less. A moderately bad man knows he is not very good: a thoroughly bad man thinks he is all right. This is common sense, really. You understand sleep when you are awake, not while you are sleeping. You can see mistakes in arithmetic when your mind is working properly: while you are making them you cannot see them. You can understand the nature of drunkenness when you are sober, not when you are drunk. Good people know about both good and evil: bad people do not know about either.
A warrior feeds her body well. She trains it, works on it. Where she lacks knowledge, she studies. But above all, she must believe in her strength of will and purpose and heart and soul.
We humans have an extraordinary capacity. We can learn pretty much anything, from walking to talking to building robots, predicting the weather or cooking delicious cookies. Most interestingly, we have developed a capacity to transform our environment in ways that allow us overcome our biological limitations so that with our technologies we can move faster than a cheetah, fly higher than an eagle and see further than any animal. At the core of all this progress lies our ability to learn.

Will you gain the whole world and lose your soul? Mark 8:36
Our biggest lesson has been about this balance between then and now, to keep the destination in mind but pay close attention to how we get there as well.
Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, But faith looks up!
