“I tried to take your advice and not stress over this, but it was a challenge! It’s funny, I feel inspired on a daily basis, but when it came down to it, so many of my choices were from way back in my past. Am I filling my time with mediocre music/books/movies or is it more difficult, the older I get, to fall as hard and feel as deeply for things? I don’t know- but I loved the process.”
