I’m kind of in love with this quote from Anaïs Nin, who I have been reading a lot about lately:
I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I cannot transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.
This quote really resonates with me for some reason. Perhaps because I too am excitable? Because I want so much more out of life than a dreary existence that I settled for?
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
This is also true. Sometimes I have to shore up my courage and do the things I know will only make me better. Especially when they are scary.
Can you see why I love these?psyche
