You don't need more motivation, you don't need to be inspired to action. you don't need to read anymore lists or posts about how you're not doing enough.

We act as if we can read enough articles and enough little pinterest quotes and suddenly the little switch in our brain will put us into action. But, honestly, here's the think that nobody really talks about when it comes to success and motivation and willpower and goals and productivity and all those little buzz words that have come into popularity: you change when you want to change, you put your ideas into action in the timing that is best. that's just how it happens.

And what I think we all need more than anything is this: permission to be wherever the fuck we are when we're there.

You're not a robot you can just conjure up motivation when you don't have it. sometimes you're going through something, sometimes life has happened.

You don't have to control everything. You can wake up at 5 a.m. Everyday until you're tired and broken, but if the words or the painting or the ideas don't want to come to fruition, they wont. You can show up everyday to your best intentions, but if its not time, its just not the fucking time. You need to give yourself permission to be a human being.
