Accept your curiosity’s invitation with the reply, Okay, I’ll try this.
Hold wonder at your core, not at arm’s length.
Trust that being your self looks like a patchwork quilt. Some patches are praised by many, some are known only to you, some you have not yet discovered, and some may never be appreciated or understood – but all are necessary for a bountiful existence. They hold you together.
Refrain from focusing only on certain pieces (the visible, successful ones or the more tattered ones). This only confuses you. Diminishes you.
Wrap yourself in this truth: curiosity and wonder are your sacred obligations for nurturing your creativity, for nurturing your self.
Flourishing can begin with the smallest, most reluctant yes.
